I feel very priveleged to be reading this. Of beauty and enchantment it spoke. Spring is easy to welcome, for it is a venerable season. At least I hope I understood if this is what you intended to write about.
Marge...Thanks for reading...so glad you enjoyed it.
Artur...thank you. I can understand your visioning of Spring as it does have elements of springtide references. I wrote this actually as an expression of beginning life toward a different light, in the midst of grief, mostly as a reassurance to myself that I could persevere...a springtide of my own, perhaps? Thank you for your kind comments.
meadowmuse, I thought this poem was about a child being born. Your thoughts at times are just slightly elusive and make for any number of interpretations. I love that quality. Now I'm off to read again knowing your thoughts in writing it It is so lovely, as is all of your poetry Liz
Feels like a kiss from the muse If my German word "Muse" is the same in English Enchanting and inviting poesy Well the words..catching breath Loved the presentaion of the poem Thank you The two replies where unintentionally but the poem is worth it in any way ups
The ability to describe life with words is similar to painting a picture; both can be powerful tools.
