Resurrected

Resurrected 

 

Glancing from window

Into soft white snow wrapping

Signs of spring?

 

Long yellow catkins from twisted hazel

Where remains of distressed thoughts hung

Decaying yet diminishing as troubles often do

 

Frozen pond where jelly spawn from

Spent dead frogs was now protected

Ready to emerge as warmth re-appeared.

 

Tender plants pausing 

Enclosing fat buds as if they had personal knowledge

Of coming balmy days

 

Cold icy winds pruning brittle stems

Whilst blackbird sheltered in half finished nest

And occasionally appeared nearby to re-energise

With soft rotten apple especially left for this purpose

 

Occasional early colour hardly diminished

Waiting to magically revive

As white cover modified structure to become liquid

To achieve resurrection.

Lovely imagery in this poem.... I slespecially like the personification of troubled thoughts....

Where remains of distressed thoughts hung

Decaying yet diminishing as troubles often do


And personification here
Tender plants pausing


And here ......
Cold icy winds pruning brittle stems



Very powerful poem
