The Season of Love
A rice paper exterior
A wrap of frosty spines
A heart awaiting spring thaw
The soft soil surrender
Of Mother Earth's farewell embrace

The prick of a barbed wire hold
Restraint bruises
A slow bleed, deemed deserving
Pierced dreams, festering
The acrid stench of decay

He is the voice of spring
A southern song of sunshine syllables
Sense, strength, merriment, freedom
Warm whispers, and healing breath
He sings my heart awake
Tender buds of promise
Bloom in the season of love

what a wonderful testament to the difference one loving person can make in your life...and the transition from one season to the dramatic. I especially like the line, "a heart awaiting spring thaw" tied in with "He is the voice of spring...that sings my heart awake"  warmest wishes to you both.

Barb me gal, only you can take a piece, scramble it and make it into a work of art that blows my butt right out of the water. This was spectacular and that last stanza, like all say, wow! Stole my breath away..

Well, Demasson---I see the pain, agony, and restraint breaking into tiny pieces ----giving way to nurtured roots of Love within the warmth of another's Soul....Delightful, simply delightful. I am one of the happiest on the site for you, dear friend....Let the sunshine, warmth, newness penetrate your intitled Soul....
Namaste', Margaret.....
