Making plans

When morning breaks
with sunlight shining
through the tired windows;
bright and sharp
and razor-shadowed;
lucidly a blackbird sings,
for snowdrops coy,

When morning breaks
monotony of grey —
unshroud the skies
for periwinkle hop-
scotch giggledrums;
make plans for fun.
     today it’s sun.

  1. Such fun and bright Bjorn! Specially love:

    unshroud the skies
    for periwinkle hop-
    scotch giggledrums;
    make plans for fun.

  2. Ditto Grace’s comment and….
    Love the repetition but with changing the second line —
    breaking the monotony of grey…ah yes 🙂

  3. Such a brilliant choice of picture to illustrate your poem, Bjorn! I love the contrast of the bright, sharp sunshine and the tired windows, and blackbird singing for snowdrops. My favourite has to be the ‘periwinkle hop- / scotch giggledrums’ – a new expression for spring!

  4. I love these parts:

    “a blackbird sings,
    for snowdrops coy”

    “for periwinkle hop-
    scotch giggledrums”

  5. I loved your poem, especially these lines — ‘giggledrums’ is fantastic!

    “or periwinkle hop-
    scotch giggledrums;
    make plans for fun.
    today it’s sun.”

  6. The temperature has dropped where I live, so we are having a chilly spring. I’m looking forward to sunny summers. Until then, your words are warmth enough.
