The orchids cling, in rose and purple spheres;

It’s nearly spring…A Sonnet for Springtime.

Gazing with love at the world around me
Seeing the flowers in full bloom
A kaleidoscope of colours in harmony
Washing away Winter’s gloom
Suddenly life erupts noisily in the air
A flurry of forms all excited
That the world is renewed
by Nature’s tender care…
