A Certain Tenderness

Spring

when flowers

speak and sing

I listen to

the gentle rain

In nature

one of those

leisurely moments

A bird sings

Listen

Now there’s nothing

but complete silence

Listen

    • The sound and rhythm of rain is just so lovely…. on a Spring day. It’s so gentle and refreshing…hope you get some soon, Gallivanta. 🌈 However the bird’s sweet melody must be welcoming, and brightens the day! Nice to hear from you and enjoy the season of blooms and colour… Happy Spring! 🙂 🐦 🌾

  10. Nicely written 🙂 I think that, being visual beings, we tend to forget our other senses. Good to have a reminder to stop and listen sometimes, and maybe catch that lovely spring scent after rain. 🙂

    • Thank you, Lana. It’s really a very beautiful time of the year and the gardens are glorious especially the Rhododendron Gardens up the hills… so alive with colour and gorgeous blooms! The Spring started off a bit chilly with lots of snow on the mountains… well, good for the skiers! 😃 Such a delight for me to share this Spring landscape and glad to have you visit here with me! ⚘ 🌈 🐨
