April is ending and my experiment is over. I met my challenge of posting a poem a day and I hope you have enjoyed them. May the rest of your spring season be beautiful.
"The Spring Wind"
The summer wind
is soft and sweet
the winter wind is strong
the autumn wind is mischievous
and sweeps the leaves along.
The wind I love the best
comes gently after rain
smelling of spring and growing things
brushing the world with feathery wings
while everything glistens, and everything sings
in the spring wind
after the rain.
