April Showers – NaPoWriMo 2016 – Day 2 (not to prompt)

****

April springs through salty showers,
Dams March’s drought, destroys the flowers,
Cold seeps through in every vein,
Chaucer speaks in opposites again,
Let flow go, beware of speed,
As veggies die and go to seed,
Wonder not this time of year,
For seasons change with nary a tear,
Grateful for the chance we get,
To spin the wheel with no regret,
Keeping to the straight and narrow,
Accepting freeze through bone and marrow,
Happy to be here at all,
Shoulders back, standing tall,
Distance not a space to go,
As life goes by, now fast, now slow.

  1. It’s very interesting how you have metrically altered your lines to reflect “now fast, now slow…” by changing from iambic to trochaic in the first and sixth couplets…..nice reflection of form and content!
