Sunday Morning Poetry

Welcome, Spring

Everything is blooming most recklessly;
if it were voices instead of colors,
there would be an unbelievable shrieking
into the heart of the night
~Rainer Maria Rilke


Happy first day of spring, friends.

It's the first day of spring! Hurrah!

I love this quote. I might have to use it again. It's so fitting for both spring and fall.

You have a knack for choosing just the right poem.... We're enjoying the cotton candy blossoms of Yoshino cherry trees right now and watched Bradford pear petals snow down on us last weekend.

Oh, I wish things were blooming recklessly where I live. But soon, I hope. It's spring. Winter can't last forever!

I can't wait 'til I see everything blooming recklessly. Although, my bleeding heart is starting to come up ... though it looks it bit like asparagus at the moment. :)
