Born anew
Of driven snow
Unblemished beauty
Encapsulating spring
A promise of renewal
Modest messengers of the gods
Offer hope and illumination
Shining in shadows with an inner light

    Wonderful, Sue!


  7. Lovely words to accompany your photo. Are your plants bursting through already? Wow, maybe I need to move back to the UK. LOL! I don’t know if you caught this, but I’ve got a new submission form on the challenge post. You can read about it here: I’m compiling all the Poets of the Week into a PDF which will be free next January. It’s much easier for me to just grab the data from the email. P. S. I did grab your data this week from your post. ❤
