Sunflowers

I will plant sunflowers
in the hollows we have dug
with a rusty spade

it is time to pull old roots
rotten with dead habit
in this neglected garden
long-choked
by winter’s breath

it is time to till the soil
let it soak in fresh April rain
steam in this year’s sun

and exhale pungent fumes
until its pores are free
to seed new grass
and soft beds for my flowers.

Lost and Found by Veronica Jorge

July 22, 2021 by in category Write From the Heart by Veronica Jorge tagged as , , , ,
 Winter. 
 Lifeless, asleep, dead.
 All is gone. Lost.
 Until the last frost melts away. 
 A sprig peeks up through the earth and winks at the sky. 
 Buds and flowers appear bearing gifts of fruitfulness.
 Year after year, spring arrives; ever the same, dependable, faithful.
 Life renews.
  
 Time passes.
 Distance separates.
 But vibrant colors burst through the faded tapestry of memories.
 Friendship. Never-ending, never-waning.
 Ever alive. 

Veronica Jorge

See you next time on August 22nd!

Gentle Tread of Spring – 4 Haiku

Gentle Tread of Spring

4 Haiku

redbud blooms quietly
as I sleep through last frost
at first blush of dawn

samaras tumble down
faster than I sweep, so I
let them rain on me

cardinal perches,
my heart lifts from winter gloom,
soaring as it soars

wisteria blooms
outside in soft morning light–
my soul company

Star Magnolia by Neetu

February 26, 2019 by in category Poet's Day by Neetu Malik tagged as , ,


I awoke 
to a sprouting of spring—
will you pin it in my hair?

I wonder 
as the starry white blossoms 
flutter in the cool morning breeze

I know
that they will blush
to the touch of warm sunny days
still to come

They are 
a promise of tomorrow
as it rises from winter’s long sleep.
