The sun peeks through
from behind cottons of
to reach inviting faces,
as eyes bow down to
warm rays of sunlight.
Flowers absence dignity
exposing swelling buds,
quietly making their entrance,
as green leaves spring out,
each pale vein naked to the eye.
A soft breeze flows,
a master caresser
whispering sweet sounds,
secrets to the
The earth smells sweet,
wet from earlier rain,
spitting out lush blades
in bright green,
as the grounds fold in, damp
and rich like molten chocolate.

Very picturesque , Shikha ..my favourite ‘ flowers absence dignity burst open’….
Can almost visualise with closed the beautiful spring you described. The flowers, the breeze, the earth. Truly an ode to Spring. Thanks Shikha. And you suddenly increased my craving for molten chocolate.
