Shifting Sands

Shifting Sands

Shifting can be subtle,
         at first unnoticed.
Shifting from the freeze
         to the thaw, warming sun.
Shifting from grey
         to golden, prisms of light.
Shifting from barren limbs
         to cherry blossoms, poetry.
Shifting from dying
         to new life, a miracle.

                     Seasons shift,
                from one to another.

         Winter, Spring, Summer, Fall,
                   come full circle
shifting over and over and over,
                   through centuries.

         I'm in my winter years,
                   would that I could,
shift to Spring and on . . . . . .
                   ~~Judi Van Gorder

An exercise in the use of Anaphora.
Written for my April 10 Poem for the Day .
