Persephone’s Fanfare

The morning walk takes us
to an otherworldly place
where winter aconites grow
and butter the park like toast.
They fill the air with a spring glow,
Persephone’s annual boast,
a fanfare to the sea swell,
the burgeoning tsunami yellow
of crocuses and daffodils.

My response to dVerse Poets Pub Quadrille: Filling the Page

De, our host this week, asks us to get our fill of quadrilles.

  1. I can hardly wait for the daffodils to start blooming. We always seem to be behind in the blooming of things and spring to be so far south. I love the thoughts of the aconites spreading and covering the ground like butter on toast. Gorgeous.

    1. Thank you, Truedessa. We are still experiencing the backlash of Storm Ciara. Yesterday we had sleet and snow twisting the knife in too. No yellow in our garden yet, but the snowdrops have kept their promise!


    1. Thank you so much, Xenia. We survived the storm, heavy rain, sleet and snow, and today was windy and very cold, but bright. Apparently another storm is on the way. Batten down the hatches! 🙂 xxx
