Inclining Toward Spring~by Paul F. Lenzi


 

 

Inclining Toward Spring

abstract-flowers-doris-wood

“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
