“I want to do to you what spring does with cherry trees.”  Pablo Neruda

 

Fullness

The beautiful blossom was in its fullness
and the buds were lush and ripe,
swollen with colour so strong,
stems supple with every flex,
the birds and the bees came
to be tantalised by that sweet nectar,
so rich a honey overflowing, it ached,
she looked up as he turned,
he smiled her personification of spring.

  2. Beautiful. As beautiful as spring blossoms and a young woman in full bloom. A young woman personifies the spring season in all its richness and beauty.
