Sunday Poetry: A Crocus Shooting Up A Purple Hand

Welcome to Sunday Poetry.   If this is your first visit you can read about the purpose and inspiration of my Sunday poetry blogs here.

It’s March, and while much of the United States has seen unseasonably warm weather, we’re still hoping and waiting for spring to emphatically arrive, no maybe yes and maybe no, but right here at our doorsteps, with no turning back.

When I discovered Revival, by Luci Shaw, I knew you would appreciate it as much as I do.  Spring as resurrection in progress.  This one is simply to breathe in and enjoy.

Remember there are no quizzes here, no right ways to read or contemplate the poem we share.  Absolutely no dissecting allowed.  Just come along for the “read.”  What line, word or thought will you carry with you this week?  If you’d like to tell us where the poem took you?  We’ll listen.
