Spring (22-Feb-2008)

Maybe I'm sorry I saw the request for a Pleiades because I can't seem to stop writing them and trying new ways to use the form. At least this one comes from a different place than the others.

Spring


Something waits beneath the
Soil hides her not from her
Sun showers life melting
Snow cannot cover what
Smells of vanilla and
Surviving until she
Summons the strength to grow

This is my favorite of the three so far. If you would like to try another challenge my Friday 5 words are up now. Have a nice weekend.

Yeah, this definately comes from a different place but it is a place where poems wait for us to find them.

Hey Phantom~ I had to come back and suggest the Paradelle to you. Here's a link to the form if you would like to check it out. But, don't feel like you have to do it because it is a somewhat difficult form. Have a nice weekend.

"Paradelle"

Oh fine...you know that I can't resist a challenge :-) I'll work on that and the Friday 5 over the weekend.
