EXERCISE Poetry Challenge #14 -- Springtime!

Discussion in 'REFINING WRITING' started by Fluffy, Mar 31, 2011.

    The season of Spring is upon us! Well, most of us. For some places it might still be cold but for others, the environment is warming up. My challenge to you is to write a poem about Spring. Seasons are super duper easy to write about, because there are so many elements to choose from. I'm even going to provide a list of ideas for those of you who could use it:

    • Trees
    • Flowers
    • Singing birds
    • Sports
    • Grass
    • Gardening
    • Temperature
    • Food
    • Bugs
    • Baby animals
    • April showers

    I hope I was able to inspire you with my lovely list. XD I'll post up a poem of my own if I can get a member or two to join in. I encourage you to make the poem(s) look pretty with bbcodes. If you need some guidance as to what style your poem should be, take a look at Shadow Poetry.
  2. I'mma post this before I go to school! Hope its OK. >.>;;

    Singing along,
    As we walk on for hours,
    We only stop to admire the flowers.

    My hand in yours as you guide me along,
    Basking in the sunshine,
    And Nature’s song.

    Your lips against mine sets my soul alight,
    Gives me wings,
    Of unstoppable flight.
  3. What may be joys of Spring?
    Well I will tell you
    It’s when you hear the birds come out to sing
    The followers bloom with brilliance
    The trees begin to turn dense dark green

    It’s when the animals come out and play
    Able to walk out side without being unbelievably hot or cold
    On rainy days you can see the grass change
    The sound of lawn mowers out on a warm sunny day

    Though Spring isn’t always time to rejoice
    The children run out and scream
    It’s a time when allergies kick in really bad
    The boys at school with gym shorts on
    The girls look like sluts

    The sun sets later
    It becomes warmer with every passing day
    The pungent smell of dogs pee
    And most of all the sound of a yapping mutt at night

    The northwest is gray
    Clouds, shadows and cold
    It's been raining all day
    These animals are bold

    Spring's always late
    Just knockin' at the door
    Spring will have to wait
    Another month or more
  5. I chose to write not about spring itself, but about the transition from winter to spring.
    The light of day
    Breaks forth suddenly
    Melting out all the white
    Replacing with green

    Like a polar shift
    Cold to warm
    From desolation,
    there is hope in our eyes

    Free from the chill
    the new era
    like light to flies
    Earth's cycle of revolution
  6. Spring

    of new life,
    flowers in bloom,
    baby animals
    exploring their new world,
    birds trilling their spring time songs
    telling the world: Time to wake up!
    There is no sight so lovely to see
    as the cycle of life beginning anew.
