It Must Have Been Spring

It Must Have Been Spring

A Poem by MsJewel

~ the honey was sweet ~


It must have been spring…


the bees were busy

the honey was sweet

and sweeter still

when shared beneath the beauty of cherry blossoms


and lush leaves breathing melodies

of sun and shade

as the afternoon swayed

into the night…


Her velvet dress unzipped

desire exposed and overflowing

on the warmth of the wind,

as the moon winked to an ocean of stars



We swam in the tide,

blowing kisses to the stars

tempting these winds

til trees lay bare

and cherry blossoms were our only cover

from the blush of the moon…



it must have been spring…

the honey was sweet

Thank you my dear friend :) Julie
It seemed all around them became spring, all bursting in sweet life, and all awakening the earth to their touch. What a beautiful, sensual joy of words and thoughts.

Oh and the best honey is the sweetest- and shared by two- who could ask for more- tempting and tantalising- no better place to be than under the cherry blossom tree- love it🌹

What a sweet touch of romantic poetry Julie... made me feel like a bee diving into spring blossoms, savoring the nectar.... also reminded me, many years ago now, of warm summer nights, of sun dresses that fell easily and the warmth found under the stars.... probably a good thing those stars didn't have cell phones with cameras or social media... lol... thanks Julie for such a honey sweet poem....

Things bloom this time of year, in many ways, and you've captured that here so magnificently with a blend of beautiful scenery and emotion.

Made me think of:
