Flower 13 - The Red Spring Flowers

When Spring makes her graceful appearance
Like a pretty maiden,
Making her presence felt like a model,
Mainly in parks, lakes and gardens,
It's like Miss Spring walking down the ramp,
With style, gait and poise;
The flowering plants,
The flowering trees,
Greet her with the warmth of sunshine,
Like a burst of applause from the audience,
The trees and flowers radiant with joy
Embrace the Lady Spring with love.

Look at these bright red blooms that trail the brims
Like little charming fairies waving their dainty wings.

A Spring Sonnet

Poet's Notes about The Poem

These are Red Spring Flowers of Deer Park, Haus Khas, in Delhi. This picture was clicked by my daughter, Radhika Menon, just a day back.(O9-04-2019)Inspired by these flowers, i wrote this poem last year in April, just about the same time. I was pleasantly surprised to see these flowers once again, this year, during a walk in the Park.

    Spring is a most attractive season, especially with your bright red flowers. An eye-catching photo for sure.
    You have masterly control of personification 'Miss Spring walking down the ramp'.
    Unforgettable.

    WHEN an actress walks the ramp all whistle and clap even truants bow what a lovely one walks about like a flower on Time's floor a rosy flower a white lotus all in a garden of dreams and all adore she smiles and thos wild kisses so many cherish not knowing how many want more she simply wlks the floor such is the manner in which you compare an actress or actor walking though the air above all and passes by throwing flowery kisses all want more she is adored and smiles as she flies

    Hi, Geeta! I commented on this poem when it was chosen as Poem of the Day and wonder why, as I check it now, it doesn’t show up. That day, when I wrote my comment, I found this poem more refreshing and edifying than the other two posted with it. I like the extended image of spring walking the stage as in a fashion show. Hoping this finds you well in all ways, Glen

    Hi Glen, Nice to hear from you. I just checked in my comments, i could not find it. But i do remember seeing it. I replied too. Wonder, where it has disappeared. No worry Glen.
    Happy to see your comment once again.
    Your words are always a learning and an inspiration for me. Thank you so much Glen.

    wow! 100 comments! but i deduct the 50 which i think Geeta typed! ha ha. she may type a response to one or all or none of my comments, but i probably shall not be back, at least not to look for them; perhaps others will be interested in how she responds? i'm interested but just don't return to look at them. i send all my responses, ......to comments i receive, ..........as messages which include the copied and pasted comment(s) . bri :)

    Hi Bri,
    So good to see you on the top of the comment chart.
    Just cannot express how pleased i am!
    When you get 50, the least courtesy demands you give back fifty with humility and grace.
    So, the number becomes a full 100! ! ! An auspicious number! !
    Now, that you have walked down the ramp, Miss Lady Spring is nodding and smiling with glee. :)
