April Rain

April Rain

As angry clouds clenched like a fist,
fade into gentle morning mist,
leaves curled on branches fall at last
from where they have been clinging fast.
Now  that the year is on the march.
water falls to quench its parch.
New leaves emerge to greet the sun
and doors open as one-by-one,
we, too, come out as April rain
brings back nature’s green again.


Prompt words today are march, water, curl and anger

    Yeah, once this (currently accumulating) 12-15 inches of new snow finishes falling, we can re-start the countdown toward this beautiful moment you describe so beautifully. Thanks.
