Perhaps

awakening from a long deep sleep called winter:

Perhaps

Have you ever
heard a word
spoken in such a tone
that the sound
defined beautifully
perfectly
the essence
of the word
it is rare
yet oh so possible
perhaps this is how
words were meant to be spoken



To read more poetry for the prompt: Word; OSI

  6. I think I have. Lichens and green to do beautifully symbolise "la renaissance du printemps". Wonderful photo and words. (Side note: I have created that account :-), all I need now is to find some more time to browse and decide. Believe me, that's going to be the hardest!)

  8. Wonderful, Tammie. It reminds me of how to speak to our children, there are many, many times more critical words spoken to them than kind words of praise.

  39. Hi everyone,
    Thank you so much for stopping by as well as for your wonderful and fun comments. I so enjoy what you have to say!

    A couple of you have asked about the photo; it is a Western Larch or Tamarack Tree. Those little green things are needles that are just beginning to make their appearance. In a while they will look very much like a pine tree of sorts. It looses it's needles in the fall after turning wonderful golden shades and making a mess of everything (I don't seem to mind though).

    I love how a poem can be interpreted so many ways!I know where the inspiration for this poem came, and yet from your comments I see it has brought so many different views. It is as though all my blog friends have transformed this poem for me. Thank you for this.

    Be well.
    Tammie
