Tree buds


Hurrah Hurrah
Spring is finally here!
Exploding in a myriad
Of shades of green
All over the garden
The new growth erupting
Into the abundance
Of newly formed buds
On the barren branches
Of the ornamental fruit trees
And atop the fresh green stems
Of the perennial plantings
Waiting expectantly
For the rain to come
Thirsting for the succor
The water will bring
So they can begin
Opening themselves up
Spreading their petals apart
In a rainbow of colours
To welcome in
The warmth
Of the sun’s entering
