              Shadow Flowers

The best time for a poet is
when Spring is new.
Such an evening as this is worth
all the treasures that have ever
        been.
The purest scent of blossoms by
     pale moonlight,
shadow flowers dancing everywhere,
and the sound of distant evening bells
as if from some better, nether would.
All thoughts turn to virgin life
spreading silently everywhere and
the possibility that new Love too
as yet might bloom.

              --- b. e. adams (3/2017)

     Poets hold such foolish trust
        That dreams are etched
          in more than dust

Eh, maybe for you, Bruce. But I get off on all the seasons, probably because I don't normally write of the seasons, although I certainly do from time to time. Anyway, the seasons, except for the cold a** winter doesn't bother or inspire me more than the others.

With a fierce N.W. Wind and a 'chill factor' of 5 degrees here ... I have to focus on Spring !

(... and, I've always been rather compelled to 'write the seasons' for some reason)

Having grown up most of my life in the tropics, where there are no "seasons", just sun, rain, floods,whatever weather moods nature sends. I tend to write about these my past life. Today, I think it was -11F, and so windy here in North America, even writing about it freezes my muse. But I like your optimism looking forward for the coming of spring

Beautiful writing DP.  The spring time of our life is magical...nothing quite like the newness.

YES ... it most assuredly is !

[for me Spring and Autumn are the v. best of times although Autumn is rather
bittersweet ... as a prelude only to Winter, it reminds one of all things passing]
