Jovial vernal verse

Spring is the green
      is the peace
      is the breeze
      and the blossoms
      and the blues
      past the buds
      to the pinks
      on the brink
      and the warmth
      and the warbles
      and the weeds
      all the yellows
      and the bees
      and the buzzing
      living branches
      and the grasses
      and the gardens
      and the growing
      and the blowing
      of the pollens
      oh! the purples
      and the chirples
      of the birds
      and the beauty
      and the butterflies
      in the skies
      and the sun—
Springtime’s fun!

Angles

The sun shines different ways in summer and winter. We shine different ways in the seasons of our lives.

Sky-happy

Foggy heavy-gray teary-eyed low-hanging
snow-stuffed melancholy winter clouds

Impulsive wayward turbulent thick-swift-dark
tempestuous hail-angered storm clouds

Sprinkling lighthearted fanciful breeze-drifted
rainbow-nestled April-hued springtime clouds

Enormous white-fluffy fairydust-fringed
frolicsome sun-illumed carefree summer clouds

Thunderous intense restless rain-soaked
lightning-streaked July-dyed monsoon clouds

Azure-skylit sunglow-slanted edge-gleaming
white-silver billowy contemplative autumn clouds

Vivid vibrant blissful dawn-lit joy-beamed
daybreak-florid sunrise-tinted morning clouds

Aimless airy midday-lazy wandering listless
mountaintop-floating leisurely afternoon clouds

Amber-ablaze day’s-end-pink ephemeral-amethyst
evening-welcome smoky-embered sunset clouds

Lambent star-flanked luminous moon-halo’d
glowing shadow-painted skygazers’ night clouds
