~ Becoming Spring ~
In the midst of snow and grey
painted skies are memories away
Spring whispers ‘I will always stay
I am a song, a dream, a vision to display
come in from your lost world, enter my dome
relax in my warmth, your heart is now home
carry me with you, wherever you roam
never forget the wonder I have shown’
re-emerge into grey, but aware of the door
bearing a warmth and beauty winter can’t ignore
brush off the sorrow, embrace all you adore
and become one with Spring once more.

This poem was written for Blogophilia
Topic: Countdown to Spring
Prompts: (1) Include ‘painted skies’
(2) Incorporate a Michael Crichton title
(I used ‘The Lost World), paraphrased slightly)

Great to see you back from Scotland. Looked like a great trip. 8 points Earthling
Thanks, Martien. I have so many photos, hopefully I can incorporate them into future Blogos.
LOve it, Dollface!
Thanks, dollface 🙂
I am here to apply for the position of groundskeeper, but only if I am allowed to live on site, and have unlimited access to your gazebo, with it’s conditioned air, fruit flavored ice cube contraption, and the skylight, for evening enjoys… Please consider me.
You had me at “I am here” (though a fruit flavored ice cube contraption is also most favorable).
