Butterfly Cinquain – Blossom – Sally Cronin

blossom
rich in promise
to flourish and to thrive
fulfil the dreams nurtured through life
from birth
A warning too that time is short
some opportunities
like blooms can be
fleeting

  2. Sally you have a way of bring Spring alive with words, especially as I am experiencing a rainy spring day on my side of the world. “Life is like a Mosaic” has been a wonderful companion to me these past months.

    This
    week has
    me thinking
    about the things
    I am grateful for.
    I have many blessings
    on the material side,
    but they fade away to nothing,
    compared to the greatest gifts of all,
    our health, and love of the
    people around us.

  3. Beautiful! I love the way you take something like the fleeting moment of the blossom to compare it with life and its opportunities. These syllabic poems of yours always make me think. xx
