The following poem was prompted by NaPoWriMo and Poetic Asides. You might want to visit those blogs for inspiration.

Walking Aware

The property is
Beautiful with the newness
Of Spring’s arrival;
Greenness is taking over
Where brittle, bare, and brown were.

I walk around most
Of the acreage seeing
Things with these old eyes
Turned fully alive with fresh
Enthusiasm of Spring.

Pollen leaves ugly
Yellow coatings on man-made
Things, and makes breathing
A bit of struggle because
The air is saturated.

Birds hop from limb to
Limb, taking flight when I get
Too close for comfort;
They fail to realize that
I only want their pictures.

The camera makes
Me look more closely, seeing
Everything with rapt
Attention to the details
And great appreciation.

I am grateful:

1.   I did not have to go out today.
2.   I stayed in pajamas.
3.   I got part of the laundry done.
4.   Supper was delicious.
5.   Mom is feeling pretty good.


I hope your Saturday was enjoyable. While you have a few minutes, I encourage you to make a creative effort. You can write a few lines, or a few pages, take some photos, or draw something, do a craft, whatever appeals to you. Just let your imagination loose for a while. It will improve the quality of your life.

As a prompt, write about how the season changing has effected you. Maybe you are happier, maybe you are sneezing, write about it. Have fun with it if you like. Should you use this prompt, please leave a link to your work in the comments below.
