April is National Poetry Month

Here's my offering of the week:

Sky kissed
blossoms of white.
Gently swaying,
love notes from
Springtime.

The Snow Crab apple trees outside my school are in full bloom and brought a smile to my face as I left yesterday. So I sat in my car and wrote this poem. I think the poetry powers-that-be deliberately chose springtime for national poetry month. It's easy to be inspired when the world is in bloom.

beautiful! Love the line: love notes from Spring time. I have heard that those passages scrawled out before you even have time to think about them, are true words from your heart. This seems to be the case with you!
