Flowers Bring Hope

Today is Earth Day. I was inspired to post the following poem by the NaPoWriMo prompt at . I wrote this a year ago, and you can click on the Dropbox link below the poem to hear me read it.






Arrow leaf, balsam root

Blanket the hillside

near a pristine lake,


bring hope of spring

soon to come,

an end to brutal winter.


Warm temperatures

around the corner

melt snow, clear ice.


A new beginning

will shortly arrive,

end nature’s tyranny,


but even in June,

snow dots mountaintops,

as winter holds on.


Meanwhile, in the valleys,

Spring has arrived

with lupine, hope.
