Springtime distractions

Spring-excitement has entered my body, my mind, the yard!
Love vibes everywhere, bees buzz in every color of blossom.
Winter stillness ceased, idle grass is greening, trees are leafing,
The hummingbirds and geckos are back, renewed life abounds.
Warmth magics the earth, little sweet-song'd birds chirp and fly
In a playground of budding branches with a deep blue sky elixir.
Desert's mild morning chill invigorates our souls, beckons vigor,
And begs sweater or bare-arm decisions—if coffee's on, go bare!
Freshly brewed, its steam through cool air hails springtime morn!
Earlier dawns light us awake with artful serenades of pink clouds;
Gorgeous late-afternoon sunshine is Octoberesque and calming
But with air golden'd by warming fervor, not Fall's cooling swelter.
Evening breezes perfume heavenly of passion & newborn blooms.
We've been waiting all winter for open windows—yay & yippee!

—Terri Guillemets
