Inclining Toward Spring~by Paul F. Lenzi



Inclining Toward Spring


“Abstract Flowers” by Doris Wood

words are as flowers

in some cases weeds

that populate gardens

with readable colors

each bed set and ready

for blooming a poem

en-nourished by verses

who stood their time

sweetening summer and

autumn with lyrical

blossoms predestined

to die come the winter

and give of themselves

turned-under enriching

the slow-to-warm soil

with nutrient metaphor

coaxed by the muse gods

commanding the syntax

of sunshine and rain to a

rhythm reborn in new

landscape of language a

horticult redux of literate

feast for the eyes who

incline toward the spring
