A Springtime Poem

Season’s Turn

A chill lies upon the silent ground

The last tendrils of winter, ruling still.

But a sound breaks through the air,

A flutter of wings, a twig falling from a beak,

In a flash of blue-black and white

The swallow chirrups, calling in the change

And Change answers!

The sun peeps from behind the clouds

Green shoots burst up from below

A freshness is upon us, banishing the chill

With the promise of brighter skies,

Young buds, nests of feathered song

A warm dance of life;


This is my entry for this month’s Salt and Caramel Writer’s Workshop
