May Blossoms

A Mikeydred May prompt

For May blossoms, perennial and strong

I raise a voice in chorus with the spheres

Revel in the joyful hues of Spring’s song

Caught in the grip of a winter, lifelong

I found new seasons in your eyes, thankful

For May blossoms, perennial and strong

Generations pass their pallet along

Emerald Isles birthed emerald eyes

Revel in the joyful hues of Spring’s song

The buzz of bees and passionate birdsong

Brought us a blue wildflower, praise be

For May blossoms, perennial and strong

Every day a mother to your throng

A striking bouquet of eight, unique blooms

Revel in the joyful hues of Spring’s song

Born under a stubborn constellation

You set the night sky ablaze with new myths

For May blossoms, perennial and strong

Revel in the joyful hues of Spring’s song

    Somehow this felt blue all the way through. Like bluebells I guess.
