No One

Some of the first blossoms of 2017: sand verbena in Anza-Borrego Desert State Park, Southern California

No one’s looking back with longing
For the chilly winter day,
When no flowers graced the hillsides,
And the sky was only grey.
No one thinks with fond remembrance
Of the barren hills and slopes
Now that spring has come with blossoms
To renew our dreams and hopes.

  1. longing is for happiness only 🙂

      True! Writing for these prompts is sometimes difficult, so I approached “nostalgia” from the opposite direction today. 😉

  2. Ha, that is probably right about most people. I love winter’s barren time. It does make us appreciate the bloomers and warmth of summer.

  3. Beautiful! especially “spring has come with blossoms to renew our dreams and hopes.” ❤️

  4. What a lovely poem to remind us of Spring after Winter. We might take Spring for granted were it not for the bleakness of Winter! I enjoyed your words!

  5. Yes, spring is a time of renewal.

  6. My heart sinks when your Spring approaches. It means the end of our Summer. Nice poem.

      Autumn Down Under can’t be all that bad, can it? 😉

  8. That is true. I am feeling sorry for the neglected fields of winter, now.

  9. Beautiful, and amazing we are starting to see desert blooms already. It’s going to be a great year for desert flowers!

    (Smile) can’t argue with that!

  11. That’s such a true quote! People don’t seem to like winter as much as warmer times of year, but it’s necessary for the earth to rest so she can give us wonderful photos like the one you took!

  12. Lovely. And well-written. Still waiting, here, for both flower and for inspiration.

  13. Those flowers are lovely! Nice words too.
