Texas Springtide

Spring arrives in Texas

with Summer clutching

tightly at its hazy edges.

Still mornings carry a

sweetness that hangs

in the air,

an announcement 

of all things readying 

to be made new.

Afternoons often give way

to raw howling winds 

carrying blankets of 

brown upturned earth

waiting to procure life

beneath the careful weight

of a farmer's weathered hands.

Twilight paints coveted sunsets

unmatched far and wide

before giving way to the

dark endless sky dotted with 

multitudes of twinkling stars

harboring secrets in the moonlight.

Spring arrives in Texas

providing an easy calm

before Summer's stiff

sweltering days and 

lazy rumbling nights.

Texas Springtide
Spring arrives in Texas
with Summer clutching
tightly at its hazy edges.

Still mornings carry a
sweetness that hangs
in the air,
an announcement 
of all things readying 
to be made new.

Afternoons often give way
to raw howling winds 
carrying blankets of 
brown upturned earth
waiting to procure life
beneath the careful weight
of a farmer's weathered hands.

Twilight paints coveted sunsets
unmatched far and wide
before giving way to the
dark endless sky dotted with 
multitudes of twinkling stars
harboring secrets in the moonlight.

Spring arrives in Texas
providing an easy calm
before Summer's stiff
sweltering days and 
lazy rumbling nights.

Timestamps (a haiku sextet)

Fog

Blanket wrap of mist

Lasting embrace of the clouds

Ere parting with earth

Dewdrops

Soothing crystal drops

Tearful kisses of the night

As darkness departs

Sunlight

Bounded by nothing

Sends warmth across time and space

Its presence made known

Moonlight

A bright reminder

That as the world turns away

It's never forsaken

Horizon

Immortally drawn

The line of separation

And the place to meet

Sand

Canvas of the sea

Carpet walk till waves return

Everything in place

Draught of Drought

Empty cups, chipped and stained 

Running out of sanded grains

The heat's still felt on porcelains

No water 'cept for salted rain

Clouds of smoke from constant sighs

Aroma caught and memorized

Stirring's playful notes reprised

On pulse's rhythmic fall and rise

Dream-made drink immersed the head

Sips of beauty, dewdrops shed

Brimming over, senses bled

Longings tasted, flowed and spread

Unceasing thoughts, hearts so bold

Flared to brace up for the cold

Till time allows firm hands to hold

Warmer days than those of old

~furtherance

 

 

 

 

february is hardly new

     its weakened sky

the changing pitch of clouds

 

winter gauzing trees to cotton

the swells

still a killdeer's nest of nerves

 

sufferance, thy name is wind

squeezing an afternoon

mute with regard to its empty bowl

 

footsteps away, hard light

scatters from a variegated sun

 

it's a quarter to march

told the faded clockface

& I'm distracted to places

in old photographs

     my hands plead pale keepsakes

like night in empty depths

 

putty these versed scars

with necessity

bend stoic through the hold

those small sounds behind breath

that wait the dead

 

broad fields of cloth

    sounding of flags

 

you are only air now

& I own your ghost

Last Leaf

Here's to the enduring leaf,

the last to fall,

marking the tail winds

of the fall,

the final drop

as autumn leaves

one last warm breath

before its silent collapse—

a golden kiss on the sod

—as a way to welcome

the anticipated arrival,

the severe frosty bite

from the gelid tears

of a frigid winter's

relentless

blow.

Write a work of prose/poetry about the coming of Springtime, but here's the catch: you can't use the letter 'S'
Written by poeticasymptote

Hope

parting from the cold

painting a white world in warmth

melting the ice wall

outdoor dancing on rich ground

cheerful ambience all around

Vernal Change

Oh Robin, great with egg!

Gather twig, mold your hollow,

Tell me of a warm tomorrow.

Oh Tulip, hint of green!

Grow up tall, reach for the light,

Cheer my heart with color bright.
