2065



profusion
blooming
yellow ixoras

tis the month of March
in some climes Spring time
buds burst open

dry season
in the tropics
still today rain

cloud blanket
offers an overcast
no bird songs

bright umbrellas
will have to do their part
adding cherry notes

How wonderful and elegant your words are...

I do love the bright umbrellas and how different seasons can be.

Frank Hubeny said...

Bright umbrellas definitely help to cheer one up.

It was the umbrellas that brought a smile to my face, too. Even in the same part of the world, nature can fool us. It feels like summer here in the Southwest US while the Northeast is facing a blizzard. Go figure.

Thank you for reminding us Spring is not the same everywhere, and it is raining in dry tropical climes. Beautiful words!

Grace said...

I will happily exchange rain for snow and see the flowers blooming ~

That's a cheerful Quadrille, Gillena, with its 'yellow ixoras' and 'bright umbrellas' and I love those cherry notes!

I love the bright umbrellas' cherry (or is it cheery?) notes! Either works, I think :)

Truedessa said...

I'm with Grace, I'll take the rain, we are going to get hit with a blizzard.

Maggie said...

Thanks for your postcard from the tropics, your words describe the season wonderfully well so that we almost feel the rain hitting our umbrellas!
Have a superb week, hope the sun comes out soon.

Lynn thank you for dropping in, it should be cheery notes, , the way I have it it is a typo error. Thank you I really didn't realize I had type it in that way,

But I agree with you cherry note works well also

much love...
