at last ...


i waited so long for everything
to unfold as it should

leaving no stone unturned

for the right time to stop asking why
and start saying
yes  

to soar into the sky
surrender!
no longer fearing
it would only last as long as
Spring blooms

to know the difference
between love that burns out
and love that keeps on burning

and now this flame is still ablaze
within me, between us

i waited so long for this
rebirth of hope
of what is holy and sacred-
this bond
that sprouts from the earth
and carries us to the heavens

we have risen in love


Spring has sprung even in New York City! The tulips in my first photo seem as tall as the Empire State Building, don't you think? Daffodils are also blooming everywhere.


I also found a big Easter egg! I wonder if there is a surprise inside? Smiles. There are many colorful egg sculptures like this all around the city. So fun! I'm sharing my poem and post with Poets United for the "Midweek Motif on Holy Days and Holidays."

Happy Holidays to all! xx

  2. Amen! I agree with Brian. You've shaped your words so beautifully into in-spiration that I could feel the resurrection. No doubt that "risen in love" is holy. I love
    "for the right time to stop asking why
    and start saying
    yes"
    The feeling of surrender.

  4. Those tulips are lovely! We don't have them yet in the garden, only in shops. But soon, probably, they'll show up here as well.

  9. Les fleurs sont en vacances,
    elles sont allées visiter la ville.

    J'aimerai bien connaitre la poule qui pond des œufs comme ça
    Chez moi les oeufs ne sont pas comme pareils
    je me suis surement trompé de poule
    j'aurai du prendre des poules artiste...

    Amicalement Pascal
