Welcome from across the pond. I am currently in Ireland but planned this post in advance. I will most likely be on hiatus until July.
Michelle at Michelle Kogan is hosting us today. I love Michelle's work. And I am tempted to take an online class from her.
This week I am sharing the second of inspiration pieces that Linda Mitchell sent me. It is a poem, "Coda". It's fitting that next week we will move into summer and so this is our final "spring' Friday.
scarred by ice, snow and wind.
Scarred by ice, snow and wind
red bud waves fuchsia with survival pride.
Red bud bears notes from our sun
Written in invisible ink.
invisible ink revealed by rain
Wintertime is done let us turn toward spring
Spring reveals herself in rain soaked woods
singing to herself.
From woods to shore bluebells hum
a rising chorus to answer Spring
Spring responds – waits a beat for the trees
Now green, these trees are winter wise.
