Good Morning Spring

Good morning Spring and welcome,

Nine months waiting is too long,

You don’t have to be so faithful,

You can cheat on winter, life goes on…

Now that trees are turning greener,

I can hear the sparrows song,

We’ve just had enough of winter,

All night long…

Flowers in my mother’s garden,

Raindrops in the afternoon,

Good night Spring you cannot come too soon…

Sitting lovely on my terrace,

Is a beauty just like you,

Sharing drinks besides the fountain of our youth…

Don’t delay your sweet arrival,

My home needs the warmth that you,

Bring as much needed survival,

Be my truth…

Bring back life, the snows are melting,

Rays of light through clouds of grey,

Hello Spring you’ve made your journey,

It’s your day…

    This such a gorgeous piece Francisco. It flows like a spring river. The flowers in my mother’s garden… this is one of my first spring memory. The poem caresses the soul and energizes the mind. It’s as beautiful as the green of spring.

      Thank you! Gabriela that is a very sweet memory…I appreciate your reply and your thoughts and the way you interpret my writing is beautiful. All good here nearing the middle of our second week of quarantine…hope all’s well on your side of the world. Take good care,
      Love from recuperating Spain,

        My pleasure Francisco and thank you for your kind words. From the bottom of my heart I hope Spain is recuperating. The news yesterday sounded awful. Let’s hope that spring will heal us all. The beautiful spring from your poem.

        Thank you Gabriela…I do not listen to the news anymore…I can feel that we’ve reached our peak and the numbers (the bad numbers) are going down and the good numbers (people cured) are going up…we’ve two and a half more weeks of the State of Alarm and mandatory quarantine, but we’ll get through this…take good care in the US…all the best to you, stay home, stay safe…

        My pleasure Francisco. I know you will go through this. We all at the end. I am really happy you have such a positive attitude. It inspires me and I am sure everyone else.
        Take care.

    We are finally seeing the first signs of spring too. Daffodils are blooming, the weather is warmer and soon we’ll be able to put away our winter coats! Thanks for sharing such an uplifting poem, Francisco. 😊

      You are very welcome Aiva. Yes, my favourite season as it leads into summer. Our weather has been cooler and with less sunshine lately, actually since we started quarantine every day has been cloudy and raining…all the best to you Aiva, stay safe
