Spring Is Here
On Friday April 1st, I fooled myself and instead of staying in the office, I drove to Golden Gate Park for a stroll in the Botanical Garden, to experience spring. If you received my latest book, “42 Encounters with Love” (if not you can order here), you know that, in addition to my other skills, I write poems.
I know that Spring is here
Because the Japanese maple tree
In our backyard has burst with red leaves.
It looks as if the burning bush
Mysteriously appeared in San Francisco.
The majestic magnolias flowers
Are showing their beauty.
The Calla lilies stick out their heads
To manifest their royal glory.
Red tulips have opened their mouths
To absorb the morning dew,
And yellow daffodils
Bounced together as in the dance.
The colorful tapestry covers the ground.
White daisies, pink flowers
And blue forget-me-nots.
The navy-blue and white hyacinths
Fill the air with their fragrance.
I know that spring is here
Because the world is filled with beauty.
