Waiting In The Wing

Sunbeams weave in between twigs of skeletal trees. And a web of shadows dance with each feisty breeze. A silver sky shimmers like cheap carnival glass. And a fickle sun is too weak for blades of grass. Snow accumulates on branches that crack and break. And bow down to the ground with the weight of each flake. Sugar maples run dry not even one sweet drip. And snowmen aren’t melting frozen in Winter's grip. Spring's not on stage just yet she's waiting in the wing. And I can hardly wait for the flowers She’ll bring.

A simple thank you doesn’t seem sufficient, however I offer it with my sincerest gratitude. Emile.

Another awesome write here, Emile. Did you enter this in the contest? A 7. PS. I see that there was some system glitch awhile ago. I was sure I was commenting on this one. The contest would be SPRING FORWARD. You may want to check it out and make the necessary steps. Kim :D

Wonderful poem, Emile! You image exactly what I see and feel here where I live! Your words echo the somber feelings we all must have of this year's exceptionally bitter Winter, and yet how we hold hope for "Spring...waiting in the wing." 7+Fav. Sandra
