The soul stirs under bright April skies,
Raw and cold, with warm sun, clouds rolling by.
Rain pours down and pools throughout,
Replenishing the soil; pushing worms out.
Everywhere in the garden is the rush to grow,
Fresh green foliage wrapped with bright colorful bows.
More voices join daily in the garden’s song,
First robin’s, then peepers all the day long.
And my heart quickens its beat on this glorious stage,
As April moves to May and writes a new page.

April springs are unique and special. The weather shifts from cold and rainy to warm and sunny, even within the same day….trying to settle. This year it has been very unsettled. The blooms continue to pop up more and more throughout the garden decorating garden beds throughout….much like presents with bows.
The flowers here are pretty spring bulbs known as, Chionodoxa, or Glory of the Snow.
I am joining in with Poets United for their weekly poetry link up for poets who blog.
I leave you with a few additional words about April spring. I welcome you to download the photo and share it.
