New Buds!

the tree is bare,
but suddenly they appear,
new tiny buds of renewed life,
that yesterday were not there,
soon the lilacs will bloom,
the aroma will fill the air,
I will put a few vases in the house,
the smell to linger there,
the beauty  seems to stay just a few weeks.
A few of my friends will visit,
and leave with their own bouquets.
and shortly after this
the petals will float to the ground,
They seemed to do their dance
and not miss a beat.
But sadly shortly after life
they lay beneath my feet,
 Every year I am reminded,
Of the joy to me they bring.
As I grab a branch and bring it closer to my nose.,
I feel a slight tingle from my head to my toes.
The lilac starts a cycle, at least in my yard
Soon there will be many flowers blooming.
all special and unique.
I can not choose a favorite,
that task for me is hard.
So I will enjoy every one,
as precious as the last,
and I know that it will start again,
The lilacs will return
when the next winter shall pass.
What a blessing.
Have a great day,


  1. A sure sign of Spring...... Lilacs, I so love their smell.......:-) Hugs

  2. Oh how I love lilacs too! We visited the rose garden and they had two large lilac bushes in full bloom. The smell was divine! I could have stood there for hours.
    Loved your poem of spring. Well said!

  3. it is a blessing....we have a bench we put in at the end of the path out the grapevine and the to go sit there...

  4. My old fashioned Lilacs have bloomed, but my Korean Lilac is just starting! They and the Lilies of the Valley are my favorite scents of spring!

  5. Hubby and I have been in awe of how quickly the leaves grow and the blossoms show up here too. Each day there is tremendous growth and it is more beautiful each day.

  6. how wonderful to know they are coming.

  7. soon there were be blooms all over.
