Obviously your winning third place finish recognizes this Soring trio trio.

IMHO each trio could be a separate 575 (entry) - well done for each!

Having fun just with your middle, I suggest a future verse by you along the lines of:

slowly, so slowly
sunshine arrives and teases --
forecaster says, "rain!"

Mark

P.S. For your allergies, close your windows in your bedroom during the daytime(!). If not too cold, allow the fresh air to creep in at night. Pillows love the pollen pasted on them during pollen's 7-7 outdoor work hours; noses do not! LOL

    Oh yes! I think you are right. I just moved away from Washington state and living there, for sure has. . .a forecast that says, "rain!" It's a beautiful state to be "from".
    Thank you Mark for all those stars. :)

    It is truly funny how we can actually feel it when it's finally on its way here. Kind of like fall. . .you know that crisp first breeze of fall air. Thanks for your comments and the stars.

Your 5-7-5 is very well-written and appealing. I can relate, for I too love spring--as I sneeze and sniffle along my way! Even in Mississippi, known for mild weather,
we're ready for spring.:-)

A very well-written 5-7-5 trio about the Spring that finally arrives and with it brings all our allergies we almost forgot about back. But all the new beauty and colorful flowers make up for the sneezing times.

    I know. . .isn't that the truth!!! The wait for the warm weather and beautiful flowers help us forget all the sneezing that comes with spring. It is so worth it. :)

Thank goodness for the bits of spring peeking through! We are having those showers that bring the flowers, but they are a lovely respite from the snow. This is a great entry for the contest and I wish you the best of luck.

Yes, and with it all of our allergies resurface, if we had any allergies to begin with.
But, that's okay, it's a welcome trade-off to get rid of the blustery, blistering cold sting of winter.
Good 5-7-5 suite, all well composed and conveyed.
Lovely picture to accompany your entry.
Best wishes to you in the contest.

Very pretty artwork and appropriate. The last two line syllable counts appear to be off at 8 and 6. You have time to edit and correct before the contest. Good luck.

I like this little chain of Springtime poems. You've done a great job of getting them all to blend together so well. I enjoyed reading this well written ode to Spring. Well done and good luck in the contest.
