Theresa Ann Moore

Rookie - 0 Points (1940 / Michigan, U.S.A.)

Snow Covered Lilacs

The morning hours are dimly lit with a glow
Delicate whispers define the branches of trees
A gray nebulous veil drenches the dense sky
Layers of new snow highlight with expertise

Frosting a tall privacy fence of aging wood
Lightly tinted green from indiscriminate moss
Soft white flakes cling almost magnetically
To a large lilac bush that gently drapes across

The midday brilliance is incredibly hypnotic
As the sun reveals a clear blue atmosphere
Soft snow-fluffed blankets begin to shrink
Small streams fill with overflowing tears

Spring’s warmth is prompting unseen bud clusters
To swell with bursting blooms… attracting bees
Soon shades of purple pallor and aromatic perfume
Will say hello with friendly sociable ease
