The Edge of Spring

on the edge of spring
among frosty rotting leaves
sprinkling of snowdrops

Kim M. Russell, 2016

My response to Carpe Diem Special #224 Candy’s 4th Yellow School bus

This is the last CD-Special of 2016 and the last with poems by Candy, winner of the ‘Tribute to Jane’ kukai.

blue dragonflies dart
along the edge of a pond
playing summer games

yellow school bus
rumbling down the street
small faces framed
behind the square windows
longing for summer days

wind in the pines
swirls upward to heaven
whispered prayers

viewing festival
standing amid pink blossoms
woman’s beauty fades
