we drink spring
sky-turn wings&

in the blossom’s ripe/wide womb
so(ul) high
w/ sweetness

  1. My photo couldn’t be a more beautiful poem – by the way, have you seen this flower before? I am curious to know what is it called.

    The butterfly species is called common crow 🙂

    • i think it’s hibiscus… have two in my garden…they’re beautiful and make a mess…ha… that makes me love them even more…smiles

  2. A fine bit of micro-verse, and leave it to you to dip your goose quill into the fecund sensuality of pollination; a fine use of the prompt, but I, for one, miss your artwork as header.

  3. I like the idea of drinking spring. I guess the weather in Germany is quite mild too and, like in France, everybody is just enjoying the sweetness of the taste of spring.

  4. love the energy in this one claudia…ha…spring sets my heart a flutter…reviving me…giving me the energy i feel in your words…..ready to take big gulps….smiles.

  5. Claudia: Please tell me where you found the prompt for today. I am subscribed, but I did not receive a prompt for today’s poem. Am I ignorant, stupid, or just plain blind. All I see is the prompt for last week on evolving poetics…please help!

  6. Perfect depiction of the butterfly wanting more and more .. never getting enough. Beautiful! I think this is one of my favorites of your poems, Claudia!

  7. it is easy to get lost it this little number. I want to dring in the sweetness of spring and let my wing unfurl. quite lovely.

  8. My son is doing cocoon in his annual day program…………. and this is beautiful…….. apt for me to read……….

  9. Ha! What a creative use of the 140 characters… and there I was panicking that I would run out of space. Beautiful picture too, and there is a feminine womb-like quality about both poem and picture.

  10. I love the idea of drinking spring (not missing the ambiguity). And the whole poem — beautiful.

  11. Love the drinking of spring in the nectar. Soon the mock orange outside my window will be alive with flying things wanting a drink of spring:)

  12. Hmm this makes me think of the joy you can only get from drinking/inhaling/taking in something so sweeet and filling and intoxicating. I think flowers must be like drugs to bees ^^

  13. Aren’t we like butterflies longing for spring? 🙂 I hope it’s beginning to turn in your part of the world, Claudia. 🙂
