Spring Floods

the air fizzy with rain
lawn freckled with
melting snow
guarding gnome tipping in the garden
caught unaware
his sister sylph long since flown
under the weatherman’s
suasion crawls a flood warning
and through the
children’s playful rabble
we raise our glasses
a toast to spring
we sip her champagne

    we don’t have the 4 seasons here, living in the tropics, but we are having plenty of rain recently.
    your first line, ” the air fizzy with rain” , grabs the attention of the reader (at least this one) prodding him/her to read more. 🙂

    enjoyed this lively write.
