Spring is on its way

by Janaki

The green buds of nettles
Food and lodging for the hungry caterpillar
Birth of a tortoiseshell butterfly

Tadpole darts in the pond
Pink bud peeps straight through the mud
Frog is crowned on the lotus

Slimy shiny slugs and snails
Slither through the matted old brown leaves
Showing their new antennae off

Ruins of the spider's web
Hold the skeletal remains of the weaver
trapping food for the young

The shaggy lawn livens up
With the rainbow shades of fragrant crocuses
A waft of perfumed Breeze
