May


Through February's whites and crystal skies
It seemed both years and miles too far away
The winds of March whipped round in vicious swirls
Drought in April, scorched wheat, sallow hay
Yet, finally, some green promise. Dare I enter?
Could it mean that now at last we'll see a May?

May will surely come bringing that beautiful feeling of rebirth and fecundity. May in the northern hemisphere is certainly the best time in the year.

Let's hope so Lilibeth - May can be best of the non-winter months.
Ours has started brilliantly. Very interesting photographs.

Great poem. Where I live, though, so far May has been quite schizophrenic and I feel stuck in this tunnel, not knowing which end is which!

In my part of Canada, we are just NOW seeing signs of spring. It cannot come soon enough.

I like your writing. My May (NW Oregon) is scattered all over the pavement - the plum trees bloomed pink and their blossoms promptly joined the rain. that's how I'll start my piece! Marsha
