Write a Poem About Growing

For Day 8 of NaPoWriMo, Donna Sadd challenges us to write about growing.

#AprilPrompts – Day 6 – Growing – #Children | Donna L Sadd.

Here in western Colorado, spring is brutal, dramatic, and irresistable. I can’t leave it alone as a subject. So here’s my poem about growing:

Growing

Through a rotting

tangle of last year’s

pale blades,

new shoots

struggle up

toward the light,

young and hopeful

they tinge

fallow fields

an incomparable

green.
