Spring's Whisper

Inside the heat of Summer's days, with fun and and freedom all the craze,
The world is simply burning


Then Autumn leaves will start their dance, inside their falling cryptic trance
and the days will slowly shorten.


When winter comes it sends a chill. Doors are closing and time stands still
The snows; to ice, are turning.


But soon there comes a time to sing. A time to feel the Touch Of Spring
and listen to Spring's Whisper


And in that time to feel the grace, that woman in my mind does race
my thoughts to be much crisper


She sings to me within my mind. She stakes her claim to this one rhyme
In truth I'd like to kiss her.


But that's the Poet I'm trapped inside of. With all his rhymes that come thereof
So many inspirations


But to feel her tug upon my heart. Just like she's done right from the start.
These words are confirmations.


Of how she makes me feel inside. With all her precious words; reside
give my words such animations


So, Touch of Spring this Rhymes for you. To tell you that I'm a friend so true
and to show my admiration


The Snowdog

And that tree resembles a woman in the most remarkable way. Mother Nature astounds me with her easy beauty created with her skillful hands...Thank you so much. I hope winter this year is different than previously. With Forever man by my side, it shall be good....

Another exquisite poem from Hiker! The day has become sweeter now! Mmmm....Love this one! And all I can say is MORE! Please, more, Hiker....I need words now....Please...Kisses...

Hiker, I don't think I can thank you enough for that. Keep rereading it all the time :) It's one of the nicest things anyone has done for me here. The poem goes straight to my favourites. Thank you for making me feel so special. And I can't stop looking at the pic of the spring girl drawing the heart on the window - it's soooo lovely!

No need to feel special when in truth you just need to know that you are special. Very special, indeed. Just like a Touch Of Spring that brings blooms to every flower, so too is your presence here. Making every person you speak to feel as if they have grown into a flower of life's maddening perfection and randomness. Breathe your ever sweet whispers upon us and watch us all bloom.

Really well done. Pictures loaded with meaning on their own are brought to life through the words. The tree picture amazing and I wonder how many have passed that spot and missed what you so perfectly captured.

I write rhymes. My mind works in circular patterns of poetics. It's simply who and what I am. My creation process for these things sometimes takes mintes, and other times days. Writing this one took me days for some reason as I kept stumbling with the way I wished to portray each season. For the seasons were secondary to the actual purpose of it. Which of course was to tell my friend that she's awesome. I write first and then I find pics. The pictures almost always come from image searches on Google. The picture finding always takes hours as I comb through litterally hundres upon hundreds of photos looking for just the right ones that can capture what was in my mind at the time the words were typened. The pic you've mentioned was found that way. And unless I miss my guess that's an actual woman in the tree that we're seeing, dressed and decorated for the sole intent of that picture. I thank you, friend of many of my friends, for your praise upon this piece. It was a labor fueled by the love of friendship. Done for someone very deserving of a blush, as well as any positive feelings she might gain from reading it knowing it's hers.

I was not aware of the back story and now with that insight the piece is even more wonderful. A try labor of love. Very nice and thank you for sharing ... the rest of the story.

Thank you again. Your comment reminds me of this quote I had read just the other day -- A man is already halfway in love with any woman who listens to him.
~Brendan Francis~ Hehehehe. I laughed so hard when I read this as it's so true.

Still blushing here :) And I love the quote, too!

Ok, that is just so cool! Happy for ya both!!

@tOs - Blush away, girl. After all..., that is the intent of it.

@the naked one - It's nice to hear of your happiness, though it may not be exactly as you imagine. Yet, who am I to infringe upon the wandering thoughts of another ? Hahahahahahaha ! Whoot whoot !!!!

Awww...I LOVE everything about it, Hiker! The words, the pics, the 'melody' of it. And I can feel spring in the air, all of a sudden! It's beautiful. And I'm really touched now. Thank you SO much. You've just made my day! Huge hugs and kisses.

To make your day, with things I say, in my ever rhyming way, is such a thing, to make me sing with feelings brought by A Touch of Spring. I remember when you were SpringWhisperer. I always thought that was a perfect screen name for you. Whenever you passed through my parts of the site it felt like Spring had laid it's warming touch upon my pages. Then you changed it to touchOFspring and I found that to be even more appropriate for you, as it more closely mirrored the way all of your friends feel. We're all blessed to be parts of your circle and we all feel that touch from even your simplest of hellos. That touch that says the words of one of my favorite quotations -- A hush is over everything, Silent as women wait for love; The world is waiting for the spring.
~Sara Teasdale~ The world awaits you, my friend.....

Hiker, you are such a kindhearted man. It always amazes me how it is possible that one heart can hold so much love for so many people. You always remember about your friends, let alone the fact how much of a gentleman you are! WE are all blessed to have you here, my friend. We all feel special because of you. I'm sure that's not only my opinion.

Thank you, dearheart. Thank you very much.

Wow! Your pictures and words were completely in sync. What a lovely little journey you took us on...and I loved every minute of it. :)

Thank you Kassie. I love when you love my rhymes. I think it's lovely. Hahahaha.

Awww you totally captured every season.....So few words, so well done....all wrapped around your genuine feelings....AWESOME!!

Dear, sweet, Sierra..., always with the kindest of words. Thank you so much, my friend...., thank you indeed. = )
