This is a very nicely composed short piece. We've had a lot of rain here in Wisconsin, but, everything is now starting to bloom. The illustration is upbeat and joyful as is your poem. Marilyn

    I'm always looking past the clouds for spring sunshine. . .and of course it gets here, eventually. I'm living with a 92 year old Aunt right now so possibly am more aware of all our rain than most. She lives and sleeps by the weater report. . .it's rubbing off. Yikes!

    Your Aunt is 92. Good for her. God bless you both. Marilyn

It does matter how or when or what appears to hinder its appearance, Spring eventually comes. The changing of the seasons is inevitable as you so eloquently stated. I enjoyed this well written work. Well done!

I remember when April showers brought May flowers.
I find this 3-5-3 to be very pleasant. I wish the climate change
would cooperate.
Best wishes with this writing prompt entry.

Thank goodness for the spring coming along! I think the rains are what actually help make the spring bloom. Nice work on this. I like the gloom blooms rhyme.

Hello there, this is a lovely 3-5-3 entry. The weather has been horrible and rainy and cold by me too. But, Spring is blooming slowly but surely. lol
Good luck! ~Kerry

I see a repetition of "B" in this piece. I wonder if that was intended. Whether or not it was it helps to draw the piece together with that familiar sound.

Although the sound of the letter does pull the piece together it lacks a flow that leads you in and out of the piece. I felt as if I was jumping around. However, the idea, the image, that was left in my mind was the sun coming to chase away a rainy day.

Good luck

    My thought was. . .spring arrives and skies are blue then they're not. In spring there are many glummy days mixed with the blue but no matter how slowly. . .spring is still on the way. Of course the "B" is intentional. Thanks for the review.

A very well-written 3-5-3 poem about the consequences we have to endure before Spring finally arrives. The rain is needed to make the new plants grow, as soon as the sun starts shining all will be green and blooming soon.

    I do agree. . .waiting in the gloom makes me want to hibernate. Thanks for the review and the stars.

You've done a good job of establishing a color motif. You've also shown that what is inevitable will inevitably occur. There is something comforting in that. This is a great entry for the contest! Best of luck!

Dear Mystery Poet,

Your poem sounds sad and depressing, but I know your spirit isn't so, because you've chosen the sweet hard-working pansy for your image. *smile* Thanks for this inspiring message and good luck!
