An #EarthDay Inspired #FoundPoem for #PoetryFriday #NPM

An Earth Day-inspired found poem, culled from my Slice of Life post on Tuesday — Harbingers of Spring.

Copy of Open for the season, cry the robin and red-winged blackbird Flags, banners, and bunting billow in the early spring breeze Earth_s springtime awakening beckons me, my senses NoOpen for the season, cry the robin and red-winged blackbird
Flags, banners, and bunting billow in the early spring breeze
Earth’s springtime awakening beckons me, my senses
No longer drowning in dull, drab hues
Winter’s anosmia banished
Earth’s vibrant palette and fragrance return
Hearty, joyful pansy faces greet all
Daffodils bright yellow glow trumpet spring’s arrival
After winter’s final frosty blast

  1. anosmia… I have that sometimes! I didn’t know it had a name! Thanks! What a perfectly good way to describe that smell of winter! (though I think I can still smell snow slightly when it snows!)
    Your poem is beautiful! Love it!

  2. Christie, you provided a new word for readers to linger over and then supported it with hints of spring’s sensations, hence creating a springsation. It’s interesting how you can smell snow’s arrival. That warrants a poem all of its own, maybe for #sol17. Using the words trumpet and blast provides additional sensory details contrasting the seasons for me.

  3. Another new word, wonderful. We’ve had what I hope is a “final frosty blast” last night & in the forties today. Some winter lingers. . . Love that you ‘found’ your poem in your earlier writing, and that ‘open for the season’ is just perfect.

  4. I just came from Alice’s found poem — how fun that you both did found poems! Two different angles on spring. Yours also goes nicely with Linda Baie’s fragrant lilacs. I can smell them all!
