Spring Fling Writing Contest



by Suzy Leopold

Winter white is melting, revealing shades of green.

Raindrops fall. Puddles deepen.

A season emerges with a new debut,             

Welcoming a new beginning on the prairie.

Seedlings peek through the soil, seeking warmth from the sun.

Buds burst. Leaves unfurl.

Flowers paint the garden with rainbow colors,

Blossoming across the wide open prairie.

Insects soar through the air, searching for nectar.

Bees buzz. Butterflies swirl.

Pollinators seek fragrant nectar with shimmery colors,

Emerging life is alive on the prairie.

Migrating birds return across a gray blue sky.

Robins flitter. Worms squirm.

Feathered friends chirp songs with cheer,

Building nests to lay some eggs.

Wake up! Wake up!

It’s springtime on the prairie.
