Crocus, rejoicing

Spring rejoices in the crocus –

Covering her with ice on those cold April mornings.

Frozen

Spring comes dressed

As a single purple flower;

Single

In a happy group

Of colours;

Happy group copy

Or in a trio

Of petals and shadow and beauty.

    No signs of Crocus rejoicing here as of yet. Thank you for yours though; it gives me hope. A week or two away I suspect in my backyard. I might have to resort to screaming into the ground, ‘come out come out wherever you are’.

  42. I was going to say that I don’t think crocuses do anything but rejoice but they are probably the saddest flower when they are dying.

  47. Gorgeous! One of the first signs of Spring for me, that I look forward to every year, are the crocuses. And this year they are both early and plentiful! It’s so great to see them turn their pretty faces up to the sun and see the bumblebees rolling in the pollen like little striped teddy bears. ♥ ♥

    April 8, 2014 at 12:45
