Spring's brew


The sun is a flame-shaker
cleaving day into evergreen-windmill

There's fragrance of tulips-honey
& narcissus in warming cinnamon-clouds

The rain sprinkles, a dewy-grower
patting the soil into moist-delirium & seeds-taster

I wear scarlet & my feet snap-escape
into mad twirling dance as bees-pipers

Wrap me close, sheets of lavender, my song-weaver
pour your sweet words into me, i'm your wine-maker

Because today is first spring day
And the brew's heady with your southern-kisses.

  1. Nicely crafted kenning, Grace. I liked the idea of being a 'wine-maker' a lot, and I can hardly wait for 'cinnamon-clouds' to find their way to our skies once more!

  10. I love your use of fragrance to evoke spring. We often focus on what we see, not enough on other senses. And who wouldn't love the company of a song-weaver?

  11. Spring breezes have blown away the gray bellies in the overcast morning, and electric-blue sun-breaks, low temps (45) beckon me to first the deck, then the backyard; you rocked the prompt; liked the idea of /moist-delirium/, a state I love to help my wife attain.

  12. dewy-grower, etc ... you do this like a pro! Clingy and sweet images as tasty as a ripe peach. Yum. I could hardly smell the honey for all the cinnamon, my favorite spice.

  31. Oh so sensual, sweet, and delicate for spring. I especially enjoyed the beginning
    "flame shaker"..
    "The rain sprinkles. . . patting the soil into moist-delirium"

    and possibly my favorite line here: "my song-weaver, pour yourself into me, i'm your wine maker."
    ..Just sweetness ..smiles.

  32. Not only do I love this poem, I love the fact that spring has finally arrived. Now, someone just needs to tell Mother Nature. I think she forgot. As always, thank you! Be well!!
