The Tall Firs Are Dancing Today

The tall firs are dancing today.
The wind blows their foliage back and forth,
Like a sea of hands waving at a parade.

Below, the just sprung tulips try to hide.
Petals sealed tight, they weather the storm,
Like little turtles hiding their heads from danger.

Water drops fall from the sky.
Their pace is sporadic, but their onslaught is relentless.
Like warriors, they eradicate all that is dry.

Underneath blankets, I lie.
I want to dance and have a parade with the trees.
Like the tulips, though, I hide.

      I really like this poem too. It came out nicely, and has a good feel to it. I’ve been looking forward to publishing it for some time.
