  • On the first day of spring


    A 5 am call from a pigeon

    With throaty song wakes me to dawn.

    Fresh-cut grass refreshes my senses

    Inspires my life to go on.

    Breakfast al fresco makes its debut

    My love sitting right by my side:

    We contemplate life ever changing

    And together how we take its ride.

    The sun makes its way to its zenith:

    We hold hands and gather our thoughts

    And walk through the natural beauty

    That earth has to us made from nought.

    The moon peaks through a red horizon

    Introducing a welcome breeze.

    Though evening sky turns our path rusty

    It beckons through wild waving trees.

    A sudden rain threatens our journey

    Wild thorns are spread across our way.

    So we turn to home as dark rises

    Yet ponder a beautiful day.

    Sleep threatens to come to me sooner

    Than expected but it can't bring

    More pleasant beginnings or endings

    Than this wondrous first day of Spring.

    Nice reflection.

      RhymeZone Forums was extremely important to me. When I joined the site – in April 2016 – I was truly humbled that so much talent would accept a Simple Rhymer. However, a few months ago I decided to pull away due to – what I felt – was an abundance of SPAM postings and comments.

      Recently, I was asked to become a Moderator to assist the other Moderators – and Administrators - in combating these SPAM postings and comments. It was my honor to enthusiastically accept.

      I pledge to take the time to review the site daily (multiple times) and take appropriate action when necessary. I thank you for your contributions, and if you are considering withdrawing your talents – or have already done so – I sincerely hope you will reconsider.
