The March morning sun
falls on bare brown trees
Setting them aglow,
revealing the budding
potential of the
green to come
Our snow is melting fast! The green may get there faster than you think
What a wonderful ode to spring. This part is so beautiful,
“revealing the budding
potential of the
green to come”
Thanks for the slice.
Lovely. I read it the second time as a metaphor for people, and it was even lovelier.
Needed this today. Here everything is white and cold, frosted over.
I saw this same potential here where I live yesterday. You have to look closely but when you do you can feel it. I was thinking (and writing) about light today too. Your poem is lovely – each word is just right to make your message so clear.
I am not inspired for writing green yet. Maybe a tad jealous. We are so snow covered and cold, even the spring Jo-Ann Fabrics flyer feels out of place! Tomorrow’s post maybe!
Love “bare brown trees.” They have a beauty all their own and mine are always sparkled with jewels (raindrops). I’ve tried so hard to capture a picture of those jewels, but no pic does justice to the beauty of each drop hanging jewel like from the bare brown branches.
Sun is shining here. What a welcome sight after the last few days.
Yay, I love the image of sun falling on the trees and illuminating their potential. Such a small poem with so much image.
