Spring On Carnival Parade

Did you look out to see
The bloom on daffodils today
Like the princess bride
Flounting on carnival's parade

The sun flower, flower  
Follows the sun rays
On axils drawn like for like
On queues, of  the sun worship

The painter, strokes his brush ready  
On rolls of canvas to paint on
The poet is at it too, with scribbles
Turning splendour adored into words of beauty

I knew there was something, something  
New in the air, the feel of its vibrancy
Echoes of  birds awaking earth
With drum rolls on song's say so

And the dew on plant leaves
With face wash, to highlight its colours  
And shine on processions
Bright as requested

Spring is the ceremonial attire
Worn by nature with grace  
Multi coloured like an african fabric
In carnival seasons

Did you look out to see
Daffodil's yellow, white in some and some
Oh what a beauty Mother nature offers  
To sweeten my delicate eyes on carnival 


  1. I can't figure out if Spring is lovelier every year, or if I am finally recognizing how splendid it is.
