This work has reached the exceptional level
free verse
"Awakening" by estory
Perfect stillness.
One wouldn't consider disturbing
Unblemished snow.
And yet,

On up ahead,
A field of crocus
Beckons like the pied piper
Calling out his vagabonds.

At the window
You sit sipping tea,
Caught between a good book
And dreaming of gardens.

But little by little
Bulbs, like buried treasure,
Call you out of your shell.


Author Notes
This is another free verse poem about spring, very reliant on the images of snow and crocus and legend and the magic of nature to tell the story of winter gradually turning the page and calling us along for the ride out of our place inside at the frost covered window pane. There's a definite movement here from stillness to dance, from contemplation to action. Musically and rhythmically I think it owes a lot to the poetry of Denise Levertov; maybe also in the unveiled persona of the narrator. Hope you all enjoy; it was fun to write. estory
Pays one point and 2 member cents.
