Welcoming Spring

Star Valley Flower Farm, by Toril Fisher

Here the dews which settled idly on paddy leaves
seem to have returned back to the distant skies,
A butterfly, anxious to gather nectar from a blooming
bed of flowers danced to the morning ragas,
A bottle of honey gathered by the bee was distibuted
around her household, the sweetness made their tender
wings to ripple in ecstatic enjoyment.

There the plants opened their hands, 
Unfolding their might,
As they woke up from deep slumber, 
Like an escaped yawn a wind blew upon the Earth, 
Her gentle children fed their face against the yawn, 
Themselves humming a tune of joy.

And then the Sun threw her silken blanket of warmth,
Underneath which the bustle of love exploded 
into fragrances of delight.

Suddenly, the valleys echoed, a visitor dressed in floral
medleys have neared, he shall plant life on these fertile fields.


  1. Many beautiful images to savour in this ode to the natural world.

    There the plants opened their hands,
    Unfolding their might... This is my favourite.

  2. I love the awakening to the sun's silken blanket for warmth ~ Such a delightful floral medley ~

  3. I like the image of the bees wings "ripple in ecstatic enjoyment." as the honey goes from bee to household enjoyment!

  4. …may such beauty always be available to us, may the fields always be fertile… but I fear we are doing much damage.
