This poem combines just two of Muri’s prompts; it’s the best I can do considering what’s left.
2. Write a poem about the changing seasons
7. Write a Quatern
The following piece hums happily along as winter turns to spring. It is
a “non-traditional” quatern—a few of the syllables are missing and the line that moves through the stanzas is close but not identical. I have added internal rhymes just for fun. What can I say? Creativity doesn’t always stay within the lines.
APRIL ALL ABUZZ
Humming, humming, earth is humming
Soft vibrations wake creation
Dormant grass shoots up en masse
Greening blades in countless shades
Keen homeowners start their motors
Humming, humming, engines humming
Mowers growling, tillers plowing
Jostling beds of sleepyheads
Bulbs awaken, breaking open
From each womb, a brilliant bloom
Humming, humming, flowers humming
Pistils, stamens, sweet libations
Bold prospectors seeking nectar
smell perfume and zoom, zoom, zoom
from their hives in overdrive
Humming, humming, life is humming
