With Spring comes an explosion of color and profusion of seasonal visitors: heirloom poppy buds morphing into blue flowers as if Papier-mâchéd, dragonflies of all varieties riding the stained glass pinwheel next to a koi pond, crimson kangaroo paws aglow in star faced blossoms.

The landscape is alive in transformation.


Writing Prompt: Poetry and color, transforming landscapes and temperatures: April inspires me. What does she do for you? Write a letter to April grounded in your sensory experience of this month. Spend time outside to observe and tune into all your senses.

To the poetry of spring,

Courtney Amber

ps – Stay tuned for my next blog post, which looks further into the poetry, during National Poetry Month.
