It being half term this week it's been really hard to try and get any writing done. The kids are constantly complaining about finding something to do and when it's raining most of the time there's only indoors activities, which can drive us all mad. So this morning when the gloomy clouds passed overhead I thought there would be another annoying day but then the sun peered through a gap. The gap widened and right now the sun is gleaming. Yes it's still a little cold but it's not raining! It inspired my poem today, this took a lot longer to write than any of the others I've written so far and that may have to do with me working downstairs at the moment. Constant interruptions do not help the inspiration flow.
I did it though, in the end, and I managed to write something which always makes me feel better. So here we are my poem for Prose for Thought...
The sun is shining but the chill is still there
Kids outside, the football in the air
Through the glass it's lovely and warm
But it's still hats and gloves and jumpers to be worn
All over the garden different shades of green
A pink, a yellow and a red can be seen
Poking through the mud and opening out
The colours shine bright leaving no doubt
Little glimpses of spring popping into sight
More sun in the day and slightly warmer at night
The clouds overhead are less gloomy and dark
Blue skies in our future and the call of the lark?
The grass is growing and more birds in the sky
A chance to be without coats may be nigh
Feeling brighter and smiling, I can't wait to see
Sunny days and blue skies, truly happy I'd be.
I really can't wait for the summer, being able to spend time outside in the fresh air always makes me feel brighter. Today I managed to let the kids play outside and for a while they were really happy, unfortunately BP doesn't enjoy the outdoors quite as much as LP and he came in, quickly followed by LP because he doesn't like to play alone. At least they got some fresh air today and hopefully in the near future they'll get a lot more.
What are you looking forward to most about the spring? Does it inspire you to see the sun shining?
