Magpie Tales prompt

Cherry Lemonade
by Laurie Kolp

Spring at last, I see you smiling down at me
Amid a field of cherry and lemon tulips.
Oh, wondrous delight!
So pleasing to the slated gray
Winter's wrath stabbed ubiquitously,
A fork in fleshy earth,
Leaving scars only you can replace.
Dear spring, I love you!
Cherry lemonade~
Refreshment for my soul.

This is my favorite of those poems responding to the photo prompt. Made me smile.

This is a wonderful prelude to spring, Laurie. So timely and universal..we are all ready now. I love what you did with this. Cherry Lemonade. This prompt stomped me but you took off with it. Kudos to you!
