Laughing at what winter thought was dead

Laughing at what winter thought was dead

A Poem by An owl on the moon

Each blossom is a seed of hope...
























Laughing at what winter thought was dead

Perennial madness in my lifty-lofty head

Tender plants, sprouting their true leaves

Alba flowers and amurensis-sighing sleeves

And your pomegranate lips a musical entice

Cross fields of sage and lavender-white rice

Grafted beauty on floating winds of thyme

You dance like magic on variegated rhyme

And life is laughing, spinning, leaping too

As winter’s sterile promise all fell through!

Your poem dances on celestial music

A truly breathtaking description of wonderful nature, Laughing at what winter thought was, the captivating dancer in the field Makes one want to run through that field skipping along with the rhytm of the poem :) Moonbeam.

I feel like im nothing more than little particles of sand blowing in the wind above this surreal scene..moving gentle around as the picture just comes alive before me. Your imagery is astounding Craig, just blankets the mind, consumes your vision and the readers goes where your words are meant to take them. Wonderful my friend, absolutely wonderful.

I think that people are drawn to things by what they're called, and I was absolutely captured by the title of this poem. As usual, Craig, you write with such perfectly flowing beauty. Your words are soft but carry just the right amount of power and passion in them.
"You dance like magic on variegated rhyme . . . "

Your words dance like magic on my computer screen, Craig =) Thanks for sharing.

Celebrate the return of spring and her triumph over the seemingly deadness of winter. A delightful poem! I really enjoyed reading it. It's very well written too.

I really like this. Right now spring is laughing and winter is frowning but winter ought to know his time will come around again. Very fun and clever write. I enjoyed this one a lot.

An owl on the moon

2023 is here... May we make it so much more heaven than hell... Wishing all peace on earth... The night has a thousand eyes, And the day but one; Yet the light of the bright world dies Wi.. more..
