It's not spring....but oh well, we can wish for it, right?

A sunlit whisper's touch
Shivering across my skin
Breezes shifting
Pastel feathered within the sky
Color softly combines
Melting into perfection
Emotion filled mists float
Soothing tender souls
Antique roses climb
Encircling spring boughs
Scents so light, fresh
Lifting my wintered heart
Into silvered sunshine
Cashmere wings of white
Carry away the cold
Along with my bitterness
Leaving me free
As the pearled blooms
Destined to flower
Within this newborn vision
Now within the sweetness
I simply exist as me
And the renewed innocence
I so gently breathe.

Great poem, my friend. A lovely piece, I'll be waiting for spring, my favorite season, and your next piece.

Alwye, this is really lovely, but hey, it's spring down in Austrailia and the other southern hemisphere countries,

Your imagery is perfection! Love this one, Alwye. We're entering fall here, which is just as lovely as spring for the rest of you!
