Whispers of Spring

Whispers of spring
Melting snow
Birds sing “Sweetie”
The song of one mate
to the other

Hats, gloves and scarves
Being strewn wet and sopping
Blocking the front door
Is scarcely a problem
As temperatures rise

The sun is gracing us
As light is lingering longer
Darkness is growing shorter
Sweet spring fever

Creatures already scouring
Find places to nest
New birth in the horizon
Death to winter

A winter never to be forgotten!

Whispers of spring
Soon voices boldly blazing
In my window
Voices of life, light and freedom

Freedom to sit
In the fresh air
And bathe in the glory
Of sun

Slip out from under my covers
Of winter gloom
And be reborn
My refuge

About goplayintraffic

My Blog, which began as a mommy blog and turned into a writing website, www.write2survive.com, is the product of my years of being home with my children and trying to find ways to keep myself sane. I have always had this feeling, coming from a single mother, that I have to contribute financially and that I have to be able to take care of myself and my children. having been married, being a NYC school teacher, having four children, living in Newtown, CT and trying to find a way to get through each day with a smile has always been something I've strived for. My stories, articles and poems will do a lot of things but mostly make you feel. I think that is what is so wonderful about having the ability to write. I have been given the gift of taking my emotions and transferring them to written word. Once that is done, I can share those words with others who may feel better, maybe just for a moment, but better nonetheless having read my words. I am glad you are here and hope you will stay:)
