Sweet Hope (NaPoWriMo)


Click above link for blog prompt info.  This post, written also for NaPoWriMo/GloPoWriMo, does not feature the April challenge’s daily optional prompt.

Once New Year fireworks

Disperse…January’s bleak

I live for cherry

Blossoms, harbinger of Hope

Sweet fullness pops on branches…

Too soon wind rushes

Petals falling, warm pink snow

Carpets earth for brides

Magic-Bringer, Spring



Thursday photo prompt: Bright #writephoto

Sue Vincent’s photo


Bright Spring’s sleep shaken

Tasked as harbinger, magic-

Bringer:  visions fresh

Hyacinth’s dew-fragrant blooms

Pink popcorn cherry blossoms


Steps suddenly light

Spirits quicken, unleash smiles

Souls shake off “old age”…

Unlatching Heaven’s shutters

Angels open bay windows


Hearts wear giddiness

Year is young, much to pursue

Poets pens take wing
