Poetry Friday ~ Springtime

12 Mar

Hi, everyone! Welcome to my blog.

This week at Colleen Chesebro Poetry ChallengeSALLY CRONIN selected the words:

Eager & Hope

We are only allowed to use a synonym for each word.

Winter waves goodbye

Gentle breezes awaken

all our senses

Impatient we look forward

to the delights of springtime

Daylight Saving Time 2021 begins at 2 a.m. on Sunday, March 14. That means we “spring forward” by moving our clocks ahead one hour. I will be changing my clocks Saturday night before going to bed.

Thank you for stopping by, and have a lovely day! ❤

    Spring is all around us in he form of blossoming trees. My spirit soars with your Tanka, Vashti… welcoming it with open arms.

      I know I am, and I’m not even sure why. 😀 I love springtime, but it’s been a very mild winter in south Florida, so it’s not like we’ve been battling freezing weather and snow. Still, I can’t wait for spring. 🙂 ❤

        I never used to care, and both changes felt right. These days, I wish they’d just pick one and stick with it.

        No, I’m not, Vashti. I should, but I can barely keep up with blogging. 😀 I’ve avoided adding anything else, because I won’t do it and then feel bad about it. ❤ ❤

    Vashti, a beautiful post and love your bright sparkling poem and I’m one of those most impatient to welcome Spring! 😀The photos are delightful and a vibrant welcome to the senses until more of the real thing appears in the garden!

    An early time springing forward, our turn in the UK next Sunday!

    Hope you’re having a wonderful weekend with lots of signs of Spring! 🌺
