Spring Breezes

Gentle spring breezes
fly through the
tree branches,
setting the leaves
aflutter
like the wings
of a thousand
emerald butterflies

  1. This is beautiful! I live in New England and I feel as if we had a winter that would never end, and then skipped right to summer. This reminded me of the peacefulness of springtime- thanks for sharing!

  2. Gorgeous springtime poem. What a delight for the senses to have time to gaze outside and observe.

    If you’re like me, monitoring testing is a tough job. We’re so used to multi-tasking. Love this imagery you created – “wings of a thousand emerald butterflies.” Breathtaking!

    Lovely image…just what I needed to sustain me through the upcoming testing days. Unfortunately, I don’t have a window in my classroom!
