Shadows and Flowers
*ORIGINAL POST DATE APRIL 5th*
So this morning I happened upon the blog naming constellations. More specifically a piece entitled Slow Rhapsody http://namingconstellations.wordpress.com/2013/03/07/slow-rhapsody Maybe it was all the bacon talk (I love me some bacon) or his writings that reminded me of the weightiness that winter can bring (being Canadian I am well aware of this feeling) or maybe it was his beautiful poem. But what I do know is that I was immediately inspired to write and this is what came of it.
You never know who is reading or what your writings can do for other people.
Trust your instincts. Trust your intuition. I can’t say that enough.
Shadows and flowers (spring is in the air)
It’s so close yet it seems so far.
The hint of a memory, like a glimmer of a shadow that catches your attention out of the corner of your eye, certain that you saw it you turn your head to find there’s nothing there, you turn your head even more with hopes of finding even a fading shadow.
You realize it was never there only a distant memory of what was.
But you know. You remember.
You can recall the smells, the sights and the sounds.
Your body becomes alive, your senses heightened.
Somehow you know.
The flowers are about to grow.
I am vacationing to a chalet in the eastern townships of Quebec for a family gathering this weekend. We’ve rented a chalet to celebrate Granddad’s 90th birthday.
I am bringing two crock pots full of sausages and bacon.
I will be wearing my rubber boots.
And I will be searching for where the flowers are about to grow.

I like the picture of the seedlings in the dirt in ‘Shadows and Flowers’:)

Thanks for the help. I appreciate it!
Another lovely post, really enjoying your blog.
Thank you so much. I’m glad. I am enjoying writing poetry. Who would have thought!?
Thank You Jennifer for your compliment on my Vintage Painted Furniture set. I enjoyed your poem as we live in upstate New York and I too am looking for the break through of spring…a few brave leaves popping from the ground, the glimmer of new growth atop the trees and of course the sounds of birds…especially the Robin.
I can’t wait to see (and hear!) the Canadian Geese when they return. I saw a few settled in a swampy farmers field the other day.
Spring is certainly in the air love the picture too, I wrote about spring yesterday for NaPoWriMo challenge are you doing it too? 🙂 G 🙂
No I haven’t been but I suppose our themes keep colliding in cyber space!
I enjoyed your poem about spring.
I think you can even just type in the URL into the text, and WordPress will linkify it for you (depend on which mode of the edit thing you use). In this case, just “http://namingconstellations.wordpress.com/2013/03/07/slow-rhapsody/” I think. Might even work here in the comment box!
Nice poem, I love the feeling of spring coming too. If I can play the curmedgeonly editor for a second (’cause everyone needs one): It’s “your body”, not “you’re body”. 🙂
Thanks for the editor note! Let’s see if that works.
Reblogged this on Spontaneous Creativity.
Great poem! You captured the spring mood – on the verge of bursting with life.
love this and everything about it, xo LMA
