An Early Spring

Dogwoods lift their trains,
open tender petals,
young brides, wedded to
a soft spring sun.
New maple leaves 
wave green-palm hands, 
spectators 
to the dance.
Below the blush of red oak buds,
a portrait hangs—
crotched lace curtains, freeze-framed
against a far horizon.

Perfectly splendid, Liza! "Crotched lace curtains, freeze-framed
against a far horizon." Absolutely beautiful! Thank you, thank you!

Ahh...ahhh...ahhh...CHOOOOO! Excuse me! Whew, sorry. That was lovely! I'm just so...allergic!! We have so much dogwood here, it looks like it's snowing! Pretty, yes, but my eyes and nose do not like it.

Thanks for dropping by today!!
