Spring Poems

 

Oh Spring, Do Come Into Us...

Oh Spring, 
do come into us
You wait so patiently behind Winter's white curtain of cold
Come wrap your warm tendrils of love and beauty around us
Replace this bare, stark world that enwraps us presently

Oh Sky
Who shelters us all year round with your lucid wisdom
Open up your dry eyes and cry tears of rain upon us
Make fertile seeds beneath Gaia's impregnated skin

Oh Sun
Who hath been in hiding from us for so long
Come out and shine upon us with your infinite light
Gaze upon us with your endless source of love

Oh Grass
Who through thick and thin dutifully stands tall
Become green and soft again, a place to lay our heads
Let blades of grass tickle the 'tween of toes as feet roam

Oh Flowers
Who patiently wait to come alive with kisses of colors
Bloom, bloom, bloom, come alive with life for us
Let our eyes behold your beauty that you offer unselfishly

Oh Bushes
Who mostly stand bare and seemingly stoic
Bring forth green foliage and delicate little flowers
That you duly offer, ones that bloom so lovely

Oh Trees
Who stand naked and strong all Winter long
Come, come, come alive with plentiful green leaves
For it is our respite during those hot Summer days

Oh Birds
Who doth flee to escape Winter's harshness
Return outside our windows, perch upon a branch
Sing to us Spring's melody of beauty and joy

Oh Spring, do come into us
Free us from this dark, cold cave of Winter
Deliver us out onto your wide open spaces
Let us play inside of your warmth and beauty

Spring's Glorious Awakening...

Brigid has awakened Ostara
Spring's Maiden Goddess
Gaia is slowly lifting away
Her white blanket of beauty
Covering the Wintered earth

For Spring's first glorious morning
Is almost upon us
Spring's first vernal morning
That awakens us to new sensations

Spring's glorious sensations
That bloom loves growth
That calls us one and all
To rise to her vernal call
That'll birth us from Winter's womb

Now come walk with me
As Gaia prepares to give birth
To Spring's first glorious morning

Oh my...
Look, her crocuses have crept out
Telling us that Spring is about to become
Listen, they are speaking to us
In nature's silent whispers

Soon there will be flowers aplenty
Dancing in Spring's warm breezes
Soon there will be many more
That'll bloom out to...
Kiss our souls with their floral lips
As they whisper sweet aphrodisiacal nothings
That'll fill our souls with kisses of soft color bliss

Oh Flora, when your flowers bloom out so
They make our hearts sing with joy
Our spirits soar with happiness
And imbue our minds with color aliveness
That connect us back to Mother Earth
Deep into the center of her hearth

Her hearth where souls are rooted into warmth
That'll thaw out our souls icy layers of illusion
And return our minds back to the openness
Of the first Spring that had sprung when time begun
Her first Spring breezes that caused our souls to stir within

Her cool breezes that waft thru
The between of her trees green branches
Where birds chirp vernal hymns of joy
That'll fill the season so beautifully
With Spring's song of a new dawn

Cherry Blossom Sky...

Oh Mother Nature transport me under...
The cherry blossom sky which I dream of
For my eyes want to see cherry blossoms
Sweet cherry blossoms in full bloom
In full bloom with their pink color love

Oh Mother Nature...
My heart wants to be filled with their pink color love
My mind wants to be painted with their pink color love
My eyes want to see visions of their pink color love
So Mother Nature transport me
To the land of their pink color love

Their land of pink color love...
Where cherry blossoms are in full bloom
Where cherry blossoms will envelop me
With their pink color love

Where cherry blossoms in full bloom will...
Surround me and abound me
Cover me from head to toe
Fall over me with natural grace
Cover me with their petals soft face

Their petals of soft pink fluff that...
Will dance on the wind
Will dance on my bare skin
Will dance from their branches end

Oh Mother Nature transport me under...
The cherry blossom sky which I dream of
The cherry blossom sky that will make me sigh
The cherry blossom sky that will make my five senses cry
The cherry blossom sky through which I will fly

Spiral Butterfly...

Spiral butterfly
Thru vernal ethers you soar
Spring eternal carried within your wings
