Spring Rains and Flowers

The lead color sky

beckons with teasing colors

of blooms by the trail.

Cottonwoods

Majestic cottonwoods
Stand by the stream whispering
Tales of long ago dreams.

Dragons

Crouching – small dragon

Protects and blesses all here

Among the tulips.

Red Guards

Red standing against

Dark shadowed trees in the West,

Blooming brightly in light.

Roots

We may stumble and trip

climbing over roots and stones,

but we will reach the top!

Nature’s stairs to the top.

Waiting

Waiting for the day

Waiting for the time to pass,

Spring will be here soon.

Snow

Heavy snow marches in

hiding the green crocus buds,

Bird feeders now empty.
