First spring poem this year
Blossoms on the nearby cherry trees
Flowers on the bush to my side.
Looking at the beauty around me,
While my nose runs
And my throats gets scratchy.
Ignore the minor discomforts of allergies
And focus on spring,
The clear blue sky.
A light cool breeze,
The warmth and growth surrounding me.
Savoring the moment.
As a bird near me chirps
A response comes from across the street
and a musical conversation begins.
Call and response
The birds stop singing .
And i hear cars again,
And the murmur of a conversation behind me.
A couple walks by
In this space and time
Wishing it could last forever.
