    Welcome to Saturday and the weekend.

    A refreshing Spring challenge this week I see, one enticing 10 lines of rhyme. From soggy grey overcast Wales here is my effort this week.

    ~ Spring ~ By ~ Dewin Nefol ~
    When Winter is done and dusted,
    When Spring is sprung and rustic,
    When blossom is budding merrily:
    Upon every branch and every tree.
    Shall glorious Spring also flower me.
    When pursed petal case is poised to spout,
    When my Spring bloom is all but out,:
    When nature explodes all about:
    Upon every canvas with colours bold,
    Shall glorious Spring spray my gold.

    Have a happy weekend!

    Namaste 🙂
