• Very nice! 🙂

  • Charming, Susan. Your drawings remind of Jacquie Lawson, the online greeting card company. The images on her cards also unfold gradually until you see the entire image. Yours are just as good. You should start a business. You draw beautifully and now you’ve got the poetry!

    • Hi Jeannette, I love her work. I am so faltered that you would put me in her league. I will give that some thought. Thanks my friend. 🙂

  • Raina L

    Very nice analogy of spring. 🙂

  • Thank you for the mention.

    We tend to be much too hard on ourselves when we first start dabbling in poetry. Poetry is a written form of dance. And the most important part of dance is that you get up and shake your booty. Not everyone will get it, but at least you are moving.

    • Hi Jon, You’re so welcome. I agree with your analogy. The only way to make it happen and to improve is the get up and keep dancing. 🙂

  • Elizabeth Scott

    Beautiful – I have not written poetry for many years but love the emotions it brings forth. I love your poem. It is life renewed. And I agree that Jon is a wonderful writer and inspiration.

    • Thanks Elizabeth, I agree with you and so appreciate your kind words. Jon and Jeri both certainly are great people all around. 🙂

  • Definitely glad to see you gave poetry another go, and also thrilled for the shout out to Jon because he certainly deserves the recognition 🙂

    • Thanks Jeri, You have been my muse for poetry throughout out the month. Jon has been my catalyst. You both deserve a shout out in my mind. 🙂

  • This is just lovely! My strawberries are coming up in my backyard, and they really do look a bit like that. I agree with Jeanette about the greeting card company idea. But I also think you could do educational podcasts for children. You and Jeri could teach the kids (for example) how to write a poem. Hats off to both you and Jon for your poetic works.

    • Hi Leora, Thanks my friend. I am so jealous that you have a strawberry patch. My is very small at the moment. I will talk with Jeri about your suggestion. 🙂

  • Karen Koblan

    Another great poem and I love the strawberries! You should put together a poetry e-book. I really enjoy reading your poems!

    • Hi Karen, Thank you so much. I will consider your suggestions for sure. Strawberries are my favorite berry. 🙂

  • A great poem. You wrote Spring is a time of renewal and new life. But I look at everyday as an opportunity and each day is a renewal of new life . Life and what we do in life is a journey. I run a small Dachshund in agility which is not a breed that is commonly seen. They are smart and not easy to train but she is my spring. My theme song for our journey and life is Miley Cyrus’s song http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qolUC13bwMc Life should be everyone’s spring.

    • Hi Arleen, I agree with you. In a way, every minute of everyday is a renewal in its own way. It makes all the difference if make make each moment or time that we have count and can see the beauty in our lives.

      Your Dachshund sounds adorable. 🙂

    The poem is lovely, and the artwork is your usual gorgeouswonderfulfantastic!

    If Disqus lets me post a link, here’s my own strawberry poem. (religion alert).


    • Hi Max, Thanks so very much. Just so you know, you made my day. 🙂 I’ll be checking your link out shortly. 🙂

  • Lovely poem Susan and spring is one of my favourite times. Although we are in Autumn the weather is like early spring.

    • Hi Susan, I always find it fun that we are flip flopped in our seasons. It does makes for for some interesting perspectives all around. 🙂

  • Liz Blackmore

    Oh I can hardly wait until we have those shoots springing up through the ground. I
    can just imagine the juice squirting as I take the first bite. Your illustrations are beautiful and well layed out, as is the poem! Thank you for the taste of spring!! Hugs!

    • Hi Liz, Thank you my friend… BIG smile. Me too. I love strawberries so waiting in anticipation for the first sweet morsel is cool. 🙂

  • Debra Yearwood

    Great poem Susan and as always, wonderful illustrations. Nothing quite catches us like nature and after a long and seemingly endless winter, spring is such a gift that I’m not surprised it inspired you to art and poetry.

    • Hi Debra, Thanks so much. It has been an interesting winter for many, that is for sure. So yes, it is a great time to be inspired. 🙂

  • You know what sucks it that the music is louder then your voice………..that said it was nice poem I liked it…..

    • I’m so sorry Jo-Anne, Thanks for telling me. I just adjusted the sound reloaded and fixed the problem. Anyho, I’m glad you liked the poem. 🙂

  • Kelly Wade

    Spring is the best time of year! I just moved from Florida to Massachusetts and I have missed that New England winter-to-spring change that you just don’t get in the south. It always puts me in a good mood, especially seeing the flowers and trees bloom.

    • Hi Kelly, What a change that is. I live in Northern California. we have three distinct seasons. Fall, Spring and Summer. Like you, I do enjoy the transitions. Spring flowers are one of my favorite thins. 🙂

  • Terrific Susan! Enjoyed the poem and your art, again.

  • I really love Spring – but we’re headed into fall in Australia now! There’s nothing like the grass turning green to erase the winter blues

    • Hey there traveling Dan, You are headed into Australia’s fall then. I agree with you. The spring green is something special, something I look forward to.

  • Doreen Pendgracs

    Susan, how I wish we had spring! Where I live spring has barely begun to sprung! It’s been a crazy year! Loved your illustrations. They give me hope that spring is indeed coming.

    • Hi Doreen, it has been a weird year for weather all around. Spring came early this year for us. It bodes for a hot summer. 🙂

  • ginavalley

    What a lovely poem, Susan!

    I think my laptop has a problem, as I couldn’t get the video to play, but I’ll try that again later.

    I love spring, too. I love all the flowers and green in my yard and around town. Just so lovely!

    • Hi Gina, I hope you can too. Please let me know if the problem persists. I love spring for the very same reasons. it is such a beautiful time of year. 🙂
