I enjoyed this very much, regards. *S* Spring is already flirting with us... my swollen eyes are ample evidence that pollen is in the air. *G* The blossoms that have sprung forth from bare branches might still feel the nip of frost... but they are a welcome sight. *S*

Dixie and Vandana,

Thank you, think I missed you earlier in my reply..

Pilgramage (Nan?) Yep! Good description of spring +. Thanks

Littlewing (Sue?)

Thanks for the time and effort and the wonderful and the xxoo, me too!

Ruth,

Glad you enjoyed this very much. I thank  you for your comments. They made me smile. (Something you seem to do quite often.) I appreciate you.

One final note for newcomers. This is a very friendly, loving place of which to be a part.

On very rare occasions, as in life outside this site, there are those with whom we come across and have personality conflicts.

Please disregard the problem with Karilea and myself. It has NOTHING to do with the value and premise of how and why this site began.
  
Though we tried being 'friends' at Christmastime, that just didn't take and life is too short to allow this negativity to blossom.

Ignoring the insensitivity would have allowed it to continue. There are no nuanes in: sorrow's face, death to dust, grief, breezes of my loss, dearly departed, etc. when someone says, Good poem, Pat still smiling, it hurts, period.

Again, thank you all for reading and I'll probably rewrite this for there are a couple of places which don't read smoothly...tho. too late to edit...I have learned a little more about poetry writing.  

Thank you all for your time in reading and the responses. Hugs and love, Pat

An interesting poem and an interesting thread too.
I won't pretend to understand all of your meaning, but that's okay, i can always make something up to fill in the blanks.
We all start out as strangers.

Krawdad,

Thank you for taking your time to read and reply.

Glad you find the poem interesting. It is meant to imply that those we loss through death are always with us through life, especially through the spring blossomings of greenery and buds opening. At least, for me.

Interesting thread? Eh! Not my favorite. Nor am I pleased. I am with the genuine replies, if they are not hurtful or mean-spirited, and people make mistakes, but some are patterns not of a positive nature.
  
"We all start out as strangers"  and it would always be my hope to have ended up as friends, but doesn't always work with everyone.

Patterns are interesting, too. I have enough negative in my personal life I need to stop any on-going when I can.
And, I just did! I hope!

What I understand is you took your time to read and reply. I thank you and appreciate it. Sorry if the meaning was unclear, for I often find that in other's poetry myself, but just apply it how best it suits my experiences. Again, thank you.

Hugs, Pat

Bill,

Thanks for reading and your reply.

I miss the sense of renewal and fresh beginnings to sad, though ancient endings. Spring is such a dramatic difference from winter, it is like starting over with many things.
We've have an especially mild winter here, but a cold windy, rainy, snowy front is coming in tonight and for the week-end. Can't imagine what will happens to all the blossoming trees and plants.

Thank you again, for it is magical in many, many ways.  Hugs, Pat

Pat, sorry I haven't replied to this before now. I wasn't on-line until late and not on-line much yesterday, either. Our weather around here was really bad thunderstorms, with a lot of lightning and some hail, so I unplugged my computer. Didn't want to take a chance of it going out because of the lightning.

I loved your poem, as always. You put very much meaning into your poetry and that is very good.  I always enjoy reading it.

Heart Hugs,
Ethel

Ethel,

Thanks for reading and your reply.
I do try to put meaning into my poetry and feel it, sometimes deeply, if it is about death, which I rarely write about.

Good idea re: lightening storms. We are expecting the same here, and I might unplug mine as well. I also am going to start a medication when I get home Saturday afternoon, which hopefully will knock me out for a week or two....I have been running on very little sleep, and no deep sleep for a very, very long time. I feel and look like a zombie! Tho. the meds aren't for sleeping they have that effect until you get used to them....keep my fingers crossed, they work that way for me. Tho usually meds have opposite effect and I'm likely to be trying to peel myself off the ceiling, instead. Anyway, I might not be on-line myself for a week or so....depending...

Hugs and love, take care, Pat

Pat~
(and 'others')
This was such a moving piece for me~

I view the blooming of trees and flowers as a rejuvenation of Spiritual things within me~
At times, we each relate to the birthing of things around us in different ways ... me ? ... I smile joyously and, like you, I enhale the richness of the event~

This is really just so lovely~
You are a very, very talented lady~
You also are 'Spring' ... blossoming~

Keep your head high ... for in that manner, God knows you are gazing at His haven of comfort~

It's my genuine belief that He destined us to me and bond for a lifetime~
Thank you for your prayers and for the beauty of your friendship~

See ... you thought all along that I was helping you ... but, I believe it's maybe the other way around ... I had a calling to show Him how sincere my heart was ... he gave me you to show it to .... I am eternally thankful~
God bless you dearest friend~
*Huglets*
~*Marge*~

Okay ?

~*The pen of the poet never runs out of ink, as long as we breathe.*~
