Delights of spring
Turning more to sun, days warm up
Sudden shower sprinkles the garden
Beads of rain glisten on the leaves
Bright sun emerges from cloud cover.
Earth emits a cool refreshing scent.
A warm wet welcome to young spring!
All of a sudden I spy bunches of
Marble-sized baby Batavian oranges
On the tree, a couple of years young.
Green on green, to gaze on and on.
While the white little flowers at its side
Toss and laugh at my silly wonderment.
The cuckoo starts its solitary serenade
Cute squirrel barks up the mango tree
In a hurry to bite and slice the tender core
Of the firm fruit on the long cool branches.
All’s new, all’s lovely, the delicious air
Of anticipation spread in nature’s domain.
Prompt-3 Spring time sensations- Rain
