In the wake
Of spring's perennial
Arrival
I absolve winter
For any dismal
Outlook I may have
Entertained.

As the seasons
Ebb and flow
so too, my moods
Rise and fall.
Pulled by the moon
Season
To wither in the darkness.

Then, like the sunflower
Turning it's face
To the sun---
Blithe spirit resprouts
From my cool but
Warming core
To show its blush.

Look at you - you've gone and surpassed even your usual high standard and produced this beauty! I love how you've used the prompts in the first stanza so naturally. It's a great poem Rel I hope you are proud of it - you should be. I'm going back to read it again.

Beautiful. I would love the sentiment even more if it weren't in the twenties with the wind chill right now.

I love how seamlessly you weave your emotions into the seasons. The hope and promise you show in your ending lines is beautiful.

Yes, Rel - banish winter with its colds and flus that have plagued you. Be gone winter, hello spring, hurry up summer!

Your poetry just keeps getting better.

I too would love to absolve winter, if only it would stop snowing this spring!
