April Blue by Joan McNerney




April Blue

 This is when we search for

color to transform cold grey.

Rainfall begins its magic

high lighting sky blue.

 

We see stacks of luminous clouds

as plants pop out and forsythia

bursts into sparkling yellow stalks.

Just today a breath of warmth

brought alive crepe myrtle buds.

 

Aromatic lilac bushes cluster in

soft bunches while birds and bugs

encircle them.  Ten pretty trees

all dressed up in lustrous greens

boogie through noontime breezes.

 

Get ready for this blast-off of spring!
