One Single Impression: Murmur

One murmur
And the pond

Breathes

A sigh of relief

That heaves the ice
And breaks it
Into more than enough pieces

For me,
The unbelieving fishermen
Set adrift by this miracle,
And the half dozen geese

Standing at the edge
Hungry and ready to receive

One murmur
And there is enough
Grace to go around.

A cool breeze
Snuffs the light
Murmurs
Sleep tight
Murmurs

Spring
To a

Wintering

Heart.

  1. Lovely! Spring to a wintering heart...that is the only sign of spring today. Are you getting the nor'easter as strongly as we are here on the coast? The wind is fierce! Glad it's not snow.

  2. Aaahhhhh yes. I have been hearing those mummurs of spring around here in the form of the ground soaking up the rain, birds singing the predawn chorus, blooms popping open. Such excitement.

  3. If we listen quietly, they are (indeed) speaking to us. Now is a time for transition from the winter to the rebirth in spring. Subtle reminders are now all around, speaking within the murmur of life. Smooth rhythm and imagery speak to me in this one Sandy.

  4. Your poetry is so vivid, it makes a picture in my mind. Here winter has been over for a very long time even tho the calendar says it is not quite over.

  9. Spring to a wintering heart. That line speaks volumes. This whole piece speaks of promise, of hope, of wonder.

    It seems inadequate to simply call it beautiful. But beautiful is just enough. Exactly enough.

  13. A beautiful and soothing, melodaic awakening! Especially love the lines:
    "One murmur
    And there is enough
    Grace to go around."

  29. We need to hear that murmur so badly. You painted that need brilliantly with impressions of this changing season between seasons.

  30. The whole world needs a welcome murmer every now and then. Spring to a wintering heart came to us Friday with a lawn mowing, the first this year. The weeds were about to overtake and the brown grass needed mowing to the new green grass level. That murmer was Spring for me.
    Thank you much, :)
