Spring Awakening – The Ghazal Series
The slow awakening of spring parallels an awakening in my life and maybe yours. Early morning sunrises, warm afternoons, colorful blooms help remove the dour days of winter. For some of us, like me, we are entering a new cycle, another move, another job, and most importantly publication of another book.
So today, I’m sharing another ghazal. This poem was written after the sudden appearance of flowers in the desert in December one year. But, it also brings to mind the wonders of spring. Enjoy.
December blue skies bring sun coloured flowers
beyond belief winter day welcomes flowers.
Smoothly, time’s web captures surprise hours
warmed by beauty, heart kisses wild flowers.
Delightful reverie intrudes cold season
sensual scents announce fragrant flowers.
Skin holds memories of fiery warm days
snow will soon succumb to flowing flowers.
Epics written in moments of magic
Skywalker’s song spins in sparkling flowers.
