Poetry Sunday-Thoughts of May



Thoughts of May



Of mothers, bees and bright bouquets

These are the images and thoughts of May.



Warm breezes, green fields and children at play

These are the sights and sounds of May.



Butterflies, frogs and birds twittering away

All of nature moves to the rhythm of May.



Fireflies brighten the lazy dusk of the day

Time slows in the early evening of May.



And the indigo sky shows a sparkling display

As we rest and dream of tomorrow in May.

This poem was originally written in May of 2012 as part of my month long celebration.  I updated the poem a bit this year.  I hope you enjoy my thoughts of May.  And Happy Mother’s Day to all!




I am joining in with Poets United for their weekly poetry link up for poets who blog.  Visit them to read some more wonderful verse.

If you enjoy reading this blog, I welcome you to share it with others. I enjoy spreading the blog love, and I appreciate all who come and read my blogs. 



Special Note:  The native wildflowers pictured here are Virginia bluebells or Mertensia virginica.  They are not related to English bluebells, but are similar in appearance.  In the Language of Flowers, bluebells represent gratitude.  A perfect flower to give to mom to show your gratitude.



I leave you with a few additional words about spring in May.  I welcome you to download the photo and share it.
