dVerse: Waiting to Blossom

dVerse: Poetics ~ Color Me Spring







Art by Sunita Khedekar


how i yearn for spring
eternally
to find the buds within
ready to open to life
and see color
bright, vivid, happy
feel the winds
the lion of march
the lamb of april
the warm sun
beaming down 
soaked up by face & body
FELT
for the first time
outside of hiding
adults directly from the womb
of amnesia
buds in waiting
for their time
to fully blossom

  8. Eternal spring we would not value as much as we do if it were not for the dull, dank winters ;) Nicely done.

  9. Buds in waiting like brides or maids in waiting... as well are waiting and not quite daring to believe that one fine day means spring...

  10. Those buds within need light and water so they can flourish and bloom renewed in the warmth of spring..

  11. I love the force you gave to "FELT" - it really marks a pivot in the poem that works great.

  13. Wonderful perspective on the painting...and like buds waiting to blossom, it seems the white boat's cargo may be hope.
