The bougainvillea are blooming
Everywhere Spring is leaving her mark
Vestiges of beauty embroidering the landscape
Morning breaks into it's hot pinks~gone 'tis the dark;
Flashing it's bashful sky ever upwards
Eventually lapping itself into a cobalt blue
With nary a cloud dancing- in thin air
SpringTide arrives~brand new;
Time ticks the moments off~waving in afternoon
Windows of lemon yellow~ simply glow
The sun, in all of it's radiance
Puts on a glittery jewel of a show;
Soon twilight arrives a bit dimmer
The birds and their song they still sing
The mountains trees in full bloom
Shadows that the approaching night brings;
Dusk calls for a return to sweet sleep
The whole world prepares to tuck itself in
A repose for Mother Earth has arrived
Slumbering in stillness-'til a new Spring day begins again;
