HAPPY SPRING - UNLESS IT'S AUTUMN





There's a poem in the breeze flying
encircling me with scent of desert trying
to be less different than the Spring of everywhere
colors explode demanding your stare.
The flowers here  bloom but you musn't touch.
Their biting prickly guards know you won't like that very much.
Cute bunnies abound, you can see them all around
in fields of green and brown, bouncing like clowns,
so different from the chocolate kind kids eat,
first their ears then their feet.
Most peeps here are not yellow
with insides of mushy marshmallow.
They're colorful though sometimes grey
with a sweetness that makes them prey
the way nature designed its way
in deserts or luscious lands, revival of poetry
the moon, the sun, the stars recite for you and me.

  7. But they have the most beautiful flowers. Spring in the desert :)

    Loved the title, both seasons are my favorites so I can relate.

    Happy Easter, Myrna

  8. Desert spring is something different from the normal greenery one finds. So I thought! But from your lines it does not in any way appear to be much lesser than normal . It must be equally fascinating!

  13. Every geographical location has their own share of Spring or at least. Basically, here in Philippines we don't have Spring season as we only have a total of seasons in a year: Summer & Rainy season. But, i'd like to claim we that so called Spring too as flowers & greeneries bloom the same too in April or almost the whole period of Summer (Jan to June). The desert would most likely be the least of place I'd like to live in but your poems here made it so as if I'm gonna have lots of fun in there breathing poetry among the breezes. Thanks for the poem. Happy Easter to you & yours, Myrna!

  17. Your own joy over poetry is apparent here, as you sweep your reader along from green meadow to desert. My sister brought gifts yesterday, chocolate eggs and cookies cut out to be Easter peeps. I was as delighted as any child,
