spring sun

Spring sun is friendly, but shy and skittish.
It is bright and cheery and calls you to come out,
but to catch its warmth, you must sit
very still
in a quiet, sheltered spot.

The slightest breeze scatters the heat
before it can sink into your skin,
but if you lie down on a bench
stretched out
it sneaks up from behind.


  1. So beautifully descriptive...gave me a smile when I needed it.

  2. Ahhh, I can feel the sun! We are having the most amazing spring in Michigan. Lovely, Ruth. :)

  3. My favorite thing, sitting in warming sunshine. You captured it!

  4. It is like spring here where I live, too. Can't believe it is this warm in March. I sure will take it though!

  5. The breezes do scatter the warmth. I just have to find that bench. Glad you're back on your sofa.

  6. Good. You wrote a poem. I'm glad.
