Poetry Friday (R.A.P.):  Spring Snow

Delicate crystal lace
blooms bright
against gentle curves
tender green beginnings
of new leaves
cradle Winter’s remains
in the fickle embrace
of Spring

The last few weeks have been busy…there have been so many things I’ve wanted to blog about and so little time to do it! Perhaps I will be able to catch up with my thoughts soon. For now, thanks for limping through with me and my little ups and downs!

    lovely poem and photo – did you take it yourself? how delecate the snow remains upon the stem – i like these words best:
    “cradle Winter’s remains
    in the fickle embrace
    of Spring”

    Great poem. I love the imagery of “Delicate crystal lace
    blooms bright”. You’ve really captured that in-between-ness of spring snowfall.

    Just found your poem, as I am posting a poem a day throughout April which is National Poetry Month! Another homeschooling mom! How cool is that? And one who also loves Jesus? I am so excited to post your poem!

    I love this poem. I took a picture today of Spring blooms peeking up through the last of the winter’s snow (I hope) and wanted to quote a verse or poem, so I was searching around. This says it perfectly!
