Pale Spring, Here Again, Nature Awake


Pale spring, here again, nature awake.
Bud burts, first bloom, slumbers reawake.
Have the wisdom to real green deal undertake.
If you can, ponder, modern world remake.

Bud burts, first bloom, slumbers reawake.
Spring season, new beginnings, despite outbreak.
If you can, ponder, modern world remake.
Those on the frontlines, all heroes make.

Spring season, new beginnings, despite outbreak.
Can we take outcomes and in solutions partake?
Those on the frontlines, all heroes make.
Do we realize , all that’s at stake?

Can we take outcomes and in solutions partake?
Have the wisdom to real green deal undertake.
Do we realize , all that’s at stake?
Pale spring, here again, nature awake.

I don’t really know how the text and image relate, but I’ve had this image in the back of my mind a week now, wanting something, I couldn’t name. Eventually I meditated upon it and this is the poetry it inspired.

Who am I to argue?

Written for Sunday Muse #103, also linking to earthweal open link weekend #16.

  1. I like the way the form works for the poem, repeating important questions. I do hope we remake the world, start a green new deal, learn the lessons mother earth has been trying so hard to teach us. I enjoyed your poem, and its message, very much.
