A Spring in My Step

Away bleak weather! It’s your time to flee.

Sun shines down and gifts me with his glow.
Pellucid are the streams from melting snow.
Robin’s come. I see her in my tree!
Ice and Sleet, it’s good to see you go!
Now the earth is ready to regrow.
Gladness sweetly takes a hold of me.

I take a stroll outside. It’s such a treat.
No longer do I trudge with dreary feet.

My gait is lively as I amble where
Yellow-flowered fields perfume the air.

Spring, is here! I feel my spirit sing
Thankfulness to God for everything.
Effervescently I greet each day.
Perpetually may this springtime stay!

Spring is coming soon

Sing with the birds in May
Pretty songs in dancing play
Raindrops on pedals of flowers
Inspire dreams in spring showers
Nests where robin eggs lay
Give new life to see in a day

Iris, crocus, daffodil show
Soft beauty as they grow

Crickets chirp in evening air
Owls hoot in chorus, a pair
Melodies from morning to night
Instantly lift the heart to flight
Newly cut grass with colors around
Give abundance of beauty to be found

Spring is coming soon
Open your heart to the tune
Over the hills, by rivers and lakes
New beginnings are now awake

Awaiting Loveliness - Acrostic

Awaiting Loveliness - Acrostic

L  Longing for the warmth of springtime days
O  over frigid gloom of wintertime,
V  varied memories come sweetly forth.
E  Etched like a painting by Monet, I see
L  longer, brighter days with springtime sun
I  inviting buds to slowly make debut,
N  nudging dormant trees to hazy green;
E  expressing to have wintertime unfold
S  springtime bliss when waiting earth renews
S  splendid newborn days of loveliness.

Wind howling at my window.
I shiver and pull on my duvet slack.
Night greets me as I go to work and back.
Then proceed to light all sources of heat.
Engage in knitting in my fireside seat.
Retreated to warmth of cosy cottage.

Surprise at tender buds in garden.
Peel off all those extra layers.
Return of sunshine thanks to prayers.
Invigorating walks on country lanes.
Noting daffodils and crocus again.
Grateful that Spring is in the air.

Spring Is Coming Soon

Sun-drenched days and showers are coming. Flowers sprout,
Pretty petals blooming, and pollywogs in ponds shall appear.
Rabbits in green fields will be scampering about.
Ice and snow will melt; our hearts will fill with cheer.
Newborn creatures, birds in nests; everywhere we’ll see
Growth and earth’s rejuvenation. Winter’s chill will flee!

Incredible is the season. Hear the robin sing!
Soon, so very soon, we’ll be seeing spring.

Crisp, clean and cool are the water and the air.
Opalescent are the rainbows as they gleam above.
Mountains changing colors; valleys oh so fair,
Inspiring us, who seeing them, feel our Father’s love.
Never-failing, spring will come as sure as sky is blue.
Giving us such gratitude as life begins anew.

Sparkling like the morning dew, comes this sweetest time
Of the year from March to June, all of it sublime.
On my trees today purple blossoms did appear.
Not just SOON is spring coming. Spring right now is HERE!

Spring Is Coming Soon

Snow draped folds like loose Cashmere curtains cover the evergreen boughs
pining for the lengthening days of each succeeding sunrise,
reticent to see the cold of night fall once again on the lonely landscape.
In this fallow world of darkness quiet is the norm, hushed silence,
nothingness, invading the shadows that fall ominously across the reaching branches
giving a sense of preternatural sleep to each living creature, each plant,
inhabiting the frigid winter's lonely, desolate abode.
Surreptitiously, the awakening begins, slowly and without notice,
Cyclamen hidden deep in the forest break free from their frozen bed of bounteous soil
oblivious to the naked dreaming deciduous trees that surround them.
Malaise broken, they reach their softly painted petals to the warmth of the sun
in perfect unison dancing the Danse Macabre to remind winter of its inevitable demise.
Narcissus will soon send forth his papery white blossoms to mock the
glow of the radiant gleen of the melting frost.
Summer still distantly drowsing cares not for the struggle of life born 
out on frozen winter days and Autumn is but a memory now glowering in its
ostentatious robes of leafy brilliance; though, the
nor'easter may yet blow, just look and you'll see the signs, Spring is coming soon.

Spring Is Coming Soon 1

S-uns kisses and soft rain
P-rovokes the earth,
R-ousing shoots upwards.
I-ndelible colours burst into life,
N-ature sings to us her
G-lorious melodies.

I-nsects buzz and flutter
S-oftly between blooming blossoms.

C-rocuses brighten the world
O-rnately embroidering the ground.
M-eadow flowers quiver in the breeze
I-mploring us to be in
N-atures awakening landscape.
G-one are the scars of Winter.

S-pring is busy.
O-bediently little lambs gambol after mothers,
O-pening buds turn toward the sun.
N-ow the earth laughs.

BASEBALL acrostic


              Batters up…..the tingles start and now we know its spring
              All the winter woes are gone and baseball fever sings
              Seats are chosen --lucky fans will sit where they can see
              Easy chairs for some are best--- the price of them is free
              Bull pens hold the players and the feelings there run high
              As the batter taps the plate he glances at the sky
              Like somewhere there is a baseball god who’ll help him out
              Luckily he smacks a low ball—it’s a home run and a shout

Melting snows begin to fade
   As a newborn season arrives,
      Refreshing our lives grown dull.
         Cradled in green budding leaves,
            Hushed by the winds of spring.

Awakening from a frozen slumber, nature erupts in a
Plethora of colors, scents and sounds.
Rainy days come and go and sometimes produce a rainbow to
Ignite our fancy after winter's drab gray.
Life is renewed as the warmth of Spring replaces the nagging cold.

Soft sun and gentle rain
Penetrate earth’s mantle 
Rejuvenating life, long dormant

Spring, Summer, Autumn Winter

Spring Summer Autumn Winter              Acrostic Poetry.

Seeking political office is getting hard,
Party politics needs more vigor in this regard:
Republicans must try more to deliver their views
In order to organize the people, without any excuse;
Nowadays, Democrats are getting stronger, after
Gaining control of the White House and the Senate altogether.

Some people think, and it's a true fact, that
Unless Republicans try to review their policy tact,
Many of their seats will be lost in congress,
Mainly some seats in the Senate, also some of the seats they control
Especially in the House: they will have to review and
Revise their conservative norms, regarding Immigration Reforms.

America needs a strong leader
Under the present day economic conditions
To lower the country's debt of over 14 trillions dollars:
Until and unless we try to cut down spending and
Most of us try to reduce excessive wastes,
No amount of effort will save the country from disaster.

We the people think that
In this country it was
Never the right thing,
To increase excessive spending,
Even if we could afford to spend it.
Responsibility lies in all of us to reduce the nation's debt.

Ardently, she sweeps away weary winter,
Preening her plumage, the year's infant peacock;
Rivers swell and rise, heavy life breasts.
Incandescent, she fires earth's darkness, sparking spring's fuse,
Liberating ice-encapsulated souls, warmth starved.

Surrepitiously beginning beneath the icy crust
Perforatting green swords, minute, prick toward the sun,
Ravenously eager to spread Spring's floral dawn.
In open view nature copulates, animal and flower,
Naive, the way it is in Paradise.
God's glory gestures grace renewed to all the earth.

Spring Is Coming Soon

Sweet, spring wrap your arms around me,
Place me in an emerald forest, green;
Rain, gently fall and make my world clean-
I run through a wildflower meadow carefree,
Narrow trails beckon me to follow their labyrinthine;
Gamboling, frolicking baby ducks play on a pond aquamarine.

Ice cold storms are gone away,
Such delight- the song of a blue jay.

Cajoling, coaxing mother duck tries to keep order,
Oh, in this nirvana there is no clock . . . 
Melodious forest tunes like a symphony by Bach-
Inside this forest nature blooms in manic disorder
Nearby, on a branch the call of a hawk . . .
Getting tired-  I rest on a sunny rock.

Shasta daisies sway and dance-
Oh, I am a travelling pleasure-seeker,
Oh, flocks of flying birds call to me from a loudspeaker;
Nothing is more beautiful than a spring happenstance . . .

 Mingled highs and lows from the weather
All around earth gives forth flowers 
Radiant sun awakens and birds gather
Constant change as each tree grows higher
Hopeful season of spring; spirit towers

Majestic springtime sunrises
Amorous hidden feelings spring forth
Rapturous aroma surprises
Captivating senses of mirth
Heavenly days linger, henceforth?

Magic moments float into night's prizes
Attentive doting companion
Rehearses love's verse excited
Completely engulfed unabandoned
Hauting thoughts float like jasmine

Spring Forsythia

She survives through the winter, but she seeks no favors
Peeking through the green
Rain is her friend, she comes in the spring
Inviting the sunshine, to smile on her face
Nothing can rival, her bright golden grace
Gladness she brings, to each vibrant place

Forsythia's splendor
Of her bright yellow swirls
Reaches the sunshine when the thaw breaks
Subdued and dormant, she suddenly wakes
Yawning and stretching...she raises her head
To suddenly blossom, and stirs in her bed 
Her sovereign beauty delights everyone
In faithful gold flowers...under the sun
A treasure of gold at the first sign of spring

At this time of the year spring
prevails and the tulips grow
resplendent, as rich colors
infiltrate patches of white,
like jewels set in the snow.

Spring time begins to lurk as winter snow melts
Pastel flowers peer from their cover 
Rapidly trying to make an appearance
Inching their way, hoping winter is over.
Nests begin to form and birds burst into song
Green grass grows and swishes in the wind
Time springs forward, losing that precious hour,
Individuals impatient for longer brighter days, as
Moments hastily pass by,  making heads spin
Ending in an instant much to their chagrin... Was that Spring?

P            Promise that day from night is born
R            Resting gently, the golden ray on startled cheek
I             Is like a feather from a singing lark
N            No lovely thing from Him is ever lost
G            Giving faith in tomorrow's renewal, with reverant intent 
F            For beauty hidden from our sight
A            A little while, returns ....and then....
I             It lifts with wings and flutters on
T            The humble prayer of Easter is not in vain
H            His proof of life everlasting, arrives in every spring
