Sevenling: The Dogwood’s In Bloom

The dogwood’s in bloom,
the lilacs waft their intoxicating scent,
the pink azalea brightens the yard

Requiring more cultivation,
the lantana spreads it’s tiny flowers,
the snapdragons roar, and million bells ring

. . . oh the loveliness of spring


It’s such a beautiful sunny day here in Oregon, I decided to write a second poem combining the Sevenling prompt from dVerse Poets Pub yesterday with the flower prompt from NaPoWriMo this morning.

I am a Jesus Freak, and I don't care who knows it. I am a wife, mother, sister, aunt, daughter, and friend. My blood family is only part of the larger family of Christ that I belong to. I love to write, especially about my dear Savior.

  1. Lovely images, but I loved most the last two lines. Pronounced and read one after the other, they really summon the spring atmosphere and made me feel lively and enthusiastic.

  2. Beautiful! We had early spring here this year, in February. Ha. So most of our flowering stuff is in full fruit already. Happy to picture this blooming beauty. Thank you.

    • I probably should have snapped a photo of the front yard flowers and posted it with the poem, but I’m more of a word person. My photography skills are not great. 😉
