Spring Sonnet

Lipogram Sonnet 4-12-24
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Spring Sonnet

Spring bursts out from winter’s silent cocoon,
Fluttering luminescence on new wings,
Freed up from the midnight’s monochrome womb
Silk ribbons of ice melt into wellsprings.

Thin borderlines edged in dull grey on white,
Feeling the tickle of divine kisses,
Explode in hues borrowed from the first light,
Colors flit over icy snow with bliss.

Gliding on the virgin winds’ new story 
Neon wings trickle colors on flowers
In purple tendrils of yellow glory,
From solstice sleep life returns in showers.

Young springtime emerges, from restive sleep, 
Rising with morning - promises to keep.

This sonnet is a stunning portrayal of the transition from winter's cold embrace to the vibrant awakening of spring. The poet skilfully evokes the imagery of spring bursting forth from winter's 'silent cocoon,' symbolizing the emergence of new life and hope after the darkness of winter. The language is rich and evocative, with phrases like 'Fluttering luminescence on new wings' and 'Silk ribbons of ice melt into wellsprings' painting a vivid picture of the transformation taking place in nature.

Hello Sam, Your poem transcends words, evoking the very essence of rebirth and renewal. I just loved the imagery of spring bursting forth from winter's cocoon which speaks to the resilience of the human spirit, while the delicate dance of colors on nature's canvas mirrors the complexities of life's journey. Your sonnet is a testament to the beauty found in both beginnings and endings to embrace each moment with gratitude and grace. Sam, this is deeply moving reflection of the soul's journey through the seasons. - Blessings, Daniel

Impressive, Sam. You captured the true essence of spring in your Sonnet AND will no 'a's" I entered the contest but struggled a bit with it. Yours flows so well and I enjoyed the imagery and alliteration (solstice sleep life returns in showers) Yours should place well in the contest, enjoy your evening, Sara
