Before getting started poeming today, I recommend everyone read my Brief Post on Commenting. I know most Poetic Asides poets already follow these rules, but it never hurts to know what my expectations are, right? (Click to continue.)

For this week's prompt, write a spring poem. I'm thinking of the season of spring, but I suppose you could write about springy poem about clocks or beds or something too. I'll leave it up to each poet what a spring poem should be.

Here's my attempt:

"Again"

Children are wearing their shorts again.
Adults are wearing theirs too again.
Insects are bugging us all again.
Pollen covers our cars again.
Lovers are walking outside again.
The moon is shining on them again.
We're opening up our windows again
and falling again and again and again.
