morning inspection

from one flower to another

a butterfly


— Kwaku Feni Adow

Cattails , January 2016


As a resident of North India, I always long for the spring season because of the harsh winters we experience here. Spring brings big relief as days start getting longer and warmer. Vasant Ritu (spring season) is a sensory delight with blooming flowers, rejuvenated topography and soothing breezes that inspires writers around the world to explore their imagination. On Vasant Panchami, goddess Saraswati, who is considered to be the goddess of wisdom, knowledge and creativity is worshipped throughout the country.

My selections are about the spring that symbolizes starting fresh, renewal and reawakening. The season is not only about opening windows of homes to the sunshine but also about mind that opens up and starts feeling inspired and motivated.

a yellow butterfly

enters the rapefield. . .

broken silence

a slight tremor through

the bluebell grove

Nice Robert. Broken silence, tremor and grove: they work with each other so well in the poem.
