First rose

Yet to open

Summer’s grace in waiting

Unformed beauty still becoming

Spring’s gift

All that will be is held within

Latent potential blooms

Growing from earth

To light

Butterfly cinquain for Colleen’s poetry challenge

  6. We had a ridiculously warm winter but we are having a cold, nasty, wet spring. Ah New England.

    Our climbing rise has started sending out tentative scouts to check out the lay of the land, but we had a few flurries of snow this afternoon, so I suspect they’re sending back messages telling the troops to wait just a bit longer. 🙂

  12. Summer’s grace in waiting! I love that phrase. Lovely rose… a stunner like your poetry!


  13. Gorgeous pictures and sumptuous poem 🙂 The butterfly cinquain suits the words very well, as the shape could also be interpreted as a budding flower. A welcome introduction to the joys of Spring 🙂
