Today it feels apt to share a poem that speaks to the season which has sprung around us. Though it is quite a chilly, crisp day by southern Louisiana standards; it is sunny outside my window, and I see blooms on the bushes and hear birds chirping. So, the awakening of spring has begun…

I see her in a pink sparkle haze
floating among the trees
her jellied wings
flexing in and out
as if in water
I reach to touch a wing
my fingers stretched outward
into the sweetened air
hovering ’round her
she hangs as if suspended, unmoving
her wings opening wide
to reveal diamonds
they fall into my hand
like gold from a leprechaun
raining beautiful trinkets
and little pink sparkles
from her wings
as she delicately

April is fast coming to a close, and as a final salute to National Poetry Month, I am posting a new poem and a review of a poetry collection. The poem was written in response to a prompt over at Imaginary Garden with Real Toads, which is fast becoming my favorite site to find other poets and a plethora of unique and thoughtful writing. The poetry collection I received for free over at Goodreads, in exchange for an honest review.

Perched in her own space, eyes closed
she basks in the morning light, warming her fur
as I write my poem, feeling the soft April breeze
rush in from the open window.
The street is quiet, no cars going past
no children playing, only an occasional chattering
of birds, a light rustling of leaves
sounds of motors whirring on distant roads.
She opens one eye, looks up at my camera
stretches her face to mine, meows, hops down
stalking towards the front door, tail upright
telling me to end my poem and let her out
into the glorious sunshine.
