Unshaken

Everywhere I look growth is peeking
Mole holes where I planted my bulbs deep
Snow flies in not fit for keeping

Winter photobombs on spring’s illustrious pose
My one ancient crocus stands its ground
Often a single poem bears more weight than prose

Patience blooms only in the repeats of my labor
Soil unattended gives no thanks
Next year those moles will see not one ounce my favor

Meanwhile beauty elsewhere steals my vision
Deceit paints with hues and muted tones
Geese heard above heralds a promising diversion

 

Decided I like tercets today. Open link at dversepoets  on this first day of spring! We had a bit of snow earlier this week, but temps rising tomorrow, and then declining again!

    Very nice sound in describing those moles in the midst of coming spring. I like the description of the snow that is not fit for keeping, how the crocus stands its ground and heralding geese.

    I’m quite partial to tercets too, Mary, and enjoyed the moles and bulbs in your poem. I love the lines:
    ‘Winter photobombs on spring’s illustrious pose
    My one ancient crocus stands its ground
    Often a single poem bears more weight than prose’.
    We have a single crocus in our garden too. No geese yet, but two pairs of ducks visited this week!

  7. Those moles can certainly stop some of the bulbs from bloom
