Hope everyone had a great Easter Holiday. By the way, turns out I lied about this poem, according to the title I wrote it two years ago when I couldn’t think of a good title. The inspiration came from my prompt in the the annual Matchbook Poetry event at Wittenberg, and this was my entry that year. Enjoy.

Spring: trees flying up to their birds;
Mists rising to greet
Their sky-bound cousins;
Flowers reaching
For the newborn sun.

The world is stretching,
Throwing off her pristine blanket
And shaking out her verdant hair,
Pale green with drowsiness.

Soon she will stand
To wreath herself in a robe
Of pink Azaleas and yellow roses
And shuffle towards the hearth-fire
To chase the ache from her bones.

As the flames suffuse her,
color blazes in her cheeks
and her hair flows,
brilliant emerald,
bursting joy.

But for now,
She languidly stretches,
Adrift in a waking dream,
Between the icy sea
And the hot sands,
Uncertain if she should go ashore
Or again drift away.

For this vote let’s do “Truth of the Warrior’s Code” or “Snake of Silence”
