You can keep your bouquets
of pungent lilies and blushing roses,
cultivated beauty intertwined.
What I would like is delicate frills,
the brilliance of daffodils:
a natural bunch of sunshine.
Their trumpets trill the breath of spring,
their breeze-swept petals fluttering,
their yellow flowers are a welcome sign
of the end of wintry blasts,
warmer weather’s here at last
to celebrate the season’s prime.
Kim M. Russell, 2018
Lillian is hosting this week’s Poetics from Bermuda. She reminds us that the clocks have sprung ahead in the US (and in the UK) and is looking forward to spring flowers and weather.
She has shared a few images to spur our imagination and asks us to pick one of the images, copy and paste to our sites, and write poems motivated by the image. Any form, any length. She wants us to put a spring in our step and in our words.
