First Warm Breeze
by
Jana Kalina

first warm breeze,
confetti

flutters in the garden

first come the snowdrops,
followed by daffodils. 

warm breeze arrives
on the coattails of tulips
and
pink cherry blossoms
release spring 

but, winter’s final exhalation
unleashes one last storm
and white confetti swirls
around the lovers 

sitting,
hearts in flutters.
Experiencing life,
for the first time

in the garden

Gorgeous verse... and I think Greenville is at least a month and a half ahead of southern Ontario! We are enjoying an 'early spring' of no snow left.

"life for the first time/in the garden" evokes the Genesis story of Adam and Eve. Very evocative poem of spring and falling apple blossom petals. One can skiny dip off Vancouver Island???

I'm not sure why the ending works so well , but it does.
