Bloom! A poem for Spring

Vivian Kirkfield hosts an annual #50PreciousWords contest in March which challenges writers to pen a story under 50 words. Please read a few of the wonderful entries in the comments of her post. 

I had one of those waking dreams where the muse floats in and prods you with a piece of poetry. She left me with the feeling that morning is so full of hope and possibilities for the day and also fraught with doubt and the weight of expectations. Each day we have to push through the challenges to bloom. Thought it is snowing outside my window, it's hard not to feel the power of Spring approaching. 

Here is my entry in 45 words.

Sunshine warms my bed.
Breaks my hibernation.
Hope awakens.


Peel away the covers.
Stretch toward the sky.
Dare to grow.


Shake in chilly breezes.
Drip with springtime rain.
Miss my bed.


Sunshine smiles brightly.
Robin calls, “It’s time!”
Believe I can.




  1. This is beautiful!

    But where are the far jokes?

    1. Thank you! I can't fart all the time! (Well, I personally can, but I can't write about it all the time...)

  2. Lovely, Lauri! Good luck in the contest!
