Flavors Of Spring

The pines are dripping off of branches each day

Spring is pushing out the browns, get out of the way

A burst of colors peeking around the earth’s soil

Gardener’s scurry with new gloves ready to toil

What will the earth birth in the season to come

Pulling weeds will always make my children run

Ripe tomatoes bursting with deep flavors of red

Worms wanting to invite vegetables into their bed

I need a straw hat to shade my deep brown eyes

Baskets of sweet blueberries I will collect for a pie

The scare crow needs stuffing and a fresh clean shirt

A shiny pin to decorate his collar wouldn’t at all hurt

Maylinda Jane McRae

I haved live in Georgia all my life. I have four beautiful children and five grandchildren,an amazing man in my life named Scott. God has also blessed me with many loving family members and friends. God has blessed me in so many ways and I want to share with others how amazing he is and the grace that he wants to bestow on others. I have been writing since I was a little girl, it has always helped me to express myself whether it was during a storm or a victory in my life. My prayer is that my poems will help someone who may be going through a storm or celebrate a vicotry in life. more…
