Over the Icy Edge

It is the time of March thaw in Maine, though the ground is still barren, drab, and frozen. The sea and sky let us view wondrous color, and our hopes of spring.

Brown Fields

Down the hill, hues softly spill
Their fields of brown
Into the tide,
As the muted earth inhales
The colors of sky.

Back River

On the frozen banks of the Back River...
Waters' sparkle,
Poignant blue,
Icy echoes,
Silver bright-
Winter shadows,
Dark and light...

Spring Legacy

Beneath the changing sky,
The future and past
Drift by like clouds.
Season and tide shift time
On this weathered shore...
Winter turns to spring.

Same here, but no snow for a week now, and I do think spring has finally and very slowly arrived, thanks Mark.

As the earth reflects the sky in your neck of the world , so the transition from winter to Spring can be reflected so well in your beautiful poetry dear Delicia . We are having a second round of snow here in England . Very unusual .
God bless you in the changes

LOL...I think of myself as a rustic poet too- from jots on scraps of paper to the Internet I scribble my feelings and love of Maine- I find the everyday is important history- this is my silly sense of humor when I am sleepy...thanks for the kind compliment and for stopping by Christine my friend...
