WIZ Kids: Floral Spring by Jenna

April’s beauty carries with it rain
Wet tear drops falling from the sky
Its premier today, showing up shy
Sliding into slits in buds
Mixing itself with different muds
Slipping down my forehead
Touching my eyelashes ahead
I close my eyes to nature’s gift
While they were closed I did drift
To the month of May’s sweet, sweet scent
To view flowers and green is where I went
With sunny skies and buzzing bees
And singing birds and a wispy breeze
The rays of sun warm my pale face
Everything holds its very own grace
The life, the energy, the colors oh my
Making you never want to say goodbye
Soon enough my eyes open slow
I can’t wait now for the plants to grow
May’s essence still with me in the gray
As I look into bliss and await tomorrow’s day

    Also, you have some very fine lines in this poem. I especially like:

  2. That was vivid to think about: all those senses awakened by Spring, all that experience during such a short time.
    Thanks for pausing time so that I could remember to do the same in my day.

  3. Jenna,

    You got talent. If your poem was categorized by poetic form it would be deemed list poem. Save your work, copyright it, and publish it like I did. I am so impressed by your poetic details. I love nature, words, and life and look forward to continuing my writing in an earthly paradise.–Psalm 37:11

  5. I have read your poem many times and love the way that you make the reader slow down and experience something very simple in a complex way. It makes me feel the same way when I look at a fine sculpture…each engraving and line placed there methodically by the artist to reveal a multi-dimensional experience.

    Keep up the interesting work and continue to share your unique and pleasing perspective with all of us!
