dverselogoGreens flourish, burying the harsh edges of winter beneath the new season. Spring is the season of rebirth when life regains strength after hunkering down during the most unwelcome cold. Once again, the earth didn’t surrender to defeat. Instead, she waited until the sun looked her way and deployed the birds to rejoice in the profusion of color and growth.

As I write this, I am enjoying the sink-into-me cushions on my patio. The fountain plays her unique melody that only water in motion can exact while in the top of the budding cottonwood tree, a mockingbird calls out in multiple languages in search of a mate. Flower pots overflow with happy hues of red, blue and yellow, energetic tones that lift spirits and engage the senses. With the breeze, the dogwood tree rains tiny white petals as if to mock the snowfalls of the arctic months.

My senses are as free as the inspiration that surrounds me. Is there a better time for poets to blossom?

This is my first opportunity to tend the bar for OpenLinkNight. The pub is ready and I’ve borrowed an apron from my good friend Joe (Hiya, Joe). I may not be the quickest pub tender around so have patience, please. I look forward to reading and commenting your poems.

Here is how it works:

  • Write a poem and post it to your website.
  • Click on the Mr. Linky button below and enter your name and direct url or web address to the poem.
  • There you will find others that have joined in—stop in, visit with them, let them know what you liked about their poem.
  • If you use social media to promote yourself, tag it @dversepoets so we can find you and help you promote.

The doors are open! We hope you have a fabulous time.
