Strawberry Moon

In Step
   Strawberry Moon
 
Alpha days into the new year sashaying
Freezing breaths snow blanketing trickling
The big sky layered with ashen morning clouds
Angsts deepen as El Niño is yawning awakening
Over the Tropic of Cancer drifting mood shifting
 
In step super wolf moon is howling anguish
Desolate screams wailing in the wilderness
Of the charcoal ore sky bleeding blood rust
The earth’s copper shadow upon her cast
 
Soothsayer Groundhog the crystal ball gazer
Squinted back to his hole the clairvoyant seer
More cold air more diamond sky sequin flurry
In step winds gust to the ides of March wild fury
 
Look behold bright and early the carrot munchers
In the plains fooled not anyone not any ranchers
Shower droplets curtain filtering the sun in April
To color wheels of May flowers heavenly magical
 
Shades of rainbow bloom across the lush fields
Fragrances of roses hyacinths lilies gently release
In step calm winds slow dance with rain drizzling
A new start the strawberry moon soon will be rising

Punxsutawney Phil had cataracts surgery and will not see his shadow. Plus green sky and green moon. Sure signs of early Spring.

Mother Nature is very generous. Loving and providing yet tough in so many other ways. In the end she smooths out everything every season.

Thanks Brod.

Where is spring? It was here in Houston last two weeks, now it's gone somewhere again. It is cold and windy today. Wassup? I just love seasonal poems. Like!
