do not blink

The green will appear

Suddenly a bare tree blooms

And we are in awe

At Mother Nature’s timing

Wishing we were as clever

add coffee

Windows through which to gaze

Light by which you can read

Know you are rich indeed

Simple pleasures

Wonder and Believe

I

Wonder

About my

Choices sometimes

And if they serve me

Since we are all here to grow

Do my choices hold me back

So I guess only time will tell

My choice to believe that gives me hope

That my choices really do serve me well

Everywhere a Sign

This week, I chose to use the words, JOLLY, and SPRING! Why? Because spring is a jolly time of year for me. I watch the land waken and all of nature brightens up in celebration! Follow Colleen Chesebro for all the fun her blog has to offer, including Tanka Tuesdays

Jolly fat robins

Worms are staying underground

Barren trees will bud

Temperatures on the rise

Spring is more than on its way

Beyond

Colleen Chesebro invited us to create a poem of our own choice, using prompt words of our own choice for the Weekly Challenge this week. I chose View & Imagination and to try my hand at GOGYOKA.

View from the window

Frosted trees and bushes

Blue peeks through white clouds

Imagination removes the glass

The soul flies with the birds
