cherry trees will bud

float like soft pink petal clouds

hatsu hana spring

chillin’

Writing prompt at Ramblings of a Writer using words “arrived” & “breeze”.

 

wet flakes fall steady

spring arrived without a breeze

robin hops in snow

 

 

cold that purifies

 

bare tree silhouettes

world iced in dazzling white

winter’s elegance

 

“Elegance is the correct posture if the writing is to be perfect. It’s the same with life: when all superfluous things have been discarded, we discover simplicity and concentration. The simpler and more sober the posture, the more beautiful it will be, even though, at first, it may seem uncomfortable.”         – Paulo Coelho

seasons flow

 

warm weather thaw

spring is winter’s changeling child

ice water gurgling

spring’s first green mirage

welcome showers

 

the sound of rain smiles

pattering steady on roof

sleep rolls us over

leafless not lifeless

naked exposure to wind

squirrels find hollow
