snow is melting (troiku)

©Clr’ 16


under sunlit skies
hope of bulbs blossoming
snow is melting

under sunlit skies
giggling children skip home
hand in hand

hope of bulbs blossoming
in her mind’s eye- red tulips,
Mother’s Day

snow is melting
spots that old red skipping rope
makes her grin

  1. beautiful! I love the repetition of ‘snow is melting’ which is happening now in the present and the flashes of memory. It gives the poem a push-pull between past and present that is entrancing.


      1. sMiLes.. Reminds me.. Childless.. Wife and i are.. So cats are kids.. And in a soothing low hertz voice i tale ‘Yellow Boy’ a bedtime story.. Where around a fire we roast marshmallows and drink hot chocolate.. And he purrs to sleep.. Must add in P and J sandwiches now to see if he likes.. wiTh same hertz of voice..;)


      2. Haha, my baby is now Bette my feline best friend (bff) now that the kids are all grown up and have their families. My daughter has children, my son has 2 golden mix and a Persian…I`m their nana too and they adore me as much as my grandsons.
