La Primavera

The frost has left and
a fresh feel of warmth remains--
the world is reborn.

I lay in the grass,
woken by a golden sun
seeing Her at work.

Trees bear new blossoms,
animals shyly come out--
again She has come.

Birds hit their high notes,
a breeze tousles my loose hair--
the sky a bright blue.

Spring exhales deeply--
a flowery scent surrounds,
putting me at ease.

The title intrested me, and overall the poem was great! I like the collection of Haikus to create a larger picture, check outmy work if you have the chance!

I love the imagery—the sight, the sound, I can see and hear it all. I love the title too. It's not a boring title like "The Spring".

Beautiful personification. There are so many cliche'd nature poems out there, and you have done an exquisite job of keeping yours fresh and original.

Thanks! I was thinking that others would get tired of my nature poems. By the way, I was looking for your work, but has it been approved yet?

I like the idea of spring exhaling - i think that's a great use of words! Very strong ending to a good poem!

Ya the no prob. I have a question though: why did you title it in Spanish instead of just calling it Spring?

I don't know. I've always liked other languages---you'll notice that my "Hanakotoba" and "Hitomebore" are Japanese words. Anyways, I looked on the site and there were a lot of poems called "Spring." I just wanted to be different.

I love this vivid, yet simple description. It really made me want spring. I liked how the whole poem seemed to be building towards the end, "putting me at ease."

 Nice job :)
