take five rays of sunshine
dip them in the sky
next borrow a leaf
from a daring snowdrop
brush your fluffy cat
dreaming in your lap
till you get some red
to the children’s laughter
to the robins’ song
find a little buzz
from a little bug
bravest of its kind
put them all together
-no instructions needed
only enough love
on your fingertips

this is how you weave
the tapestry of spring

This week, the prompt at Geraldine’s Woven Dreams is “weave.” I know I’m late, but you know what they say…

Last but far from least, I would like to dedicate this (almost) poem to all the girls in the world, young and old. Happy International Women’s Day!

Just set yourself to that weaving woman! {;-[p)}}} Engender knowledge and the matriarchal society that mayhaps return sanity to the earth.

"take five rays of sunshine

Those first two lines hooked me right away. Well done!

The first warm hint of Spring.

My first post to read today, oh what a treat Vesper! Love it, right down to that oh so silly kitty, Ched loved that too. ;<)

Definitely worth the wait.

Happy Weekend friend, G :<)

Teri Casper said...

Oh my, this is just gorgeous and love the visuals in here.

Vesper said...

LW, this is just wishful thinking. I have mountains of snow in my front and in my back yard and there's more snow on the way if the forecast is right...

SzélsőFa, thank you! We need that, I think, every now and then...

Brian, thanks! A recipe for the mind, to use on a gloomy day...

Mark, I will! :-)

Thanks, Paul! I love those line too...

Bernard, yes, even if it's only on a screen...

Geraldine, thank you! I'm glad you liked it! I was thinking of Mr. Cheddar when I saw this cat's picture... I hope your weekend is great!

Teri, thank you so much!

I'm going to try weaving this beautiful tapestry. Spring seems a bit shy this year...I think Old Man Winter is giving her a hard time!

Those blooms look like little bowling pins!

Vesper said...

Talon, I'm glad you liked it. Thank you! You're right, winter doesn't want to let go...

LW, it's raining now here and there's more on the way...

Cloudia, thank you! And thank you for visiting!

Brian, how very nice of you to stop by for that! Thank you! And the same to you. :-)

Charles, they do, don't they?
