A is for Alphabet Soup

Alphabet Soup

Alphabet soup calls to me
As the tulips bloom and the meadowlarks call
I dream of the Fall
With its warm sweaters and hot tea

Guarantees of rain storms
Early nights spent in
With pine burning fires
And you

But this is Spring
The bright sunshine
The growing grass
An end to winters discontent

Where garden salads and melon slices
Appear on Lenten tables
And we gather with those who mean the most
Or so we tell ourselves

I like the Spring
A prelude to a Summer full
Of friends and fun and driftwood fires
Built on warm beach evening nights

I like the Spring
But today I daydream
Of Alphabet Soup
And you

For the month of April I’ve committed to writing 26 poems, falling into the Alphabet.  To learn more about my project, check out my introduction.  To learn more about the A-to-Z Challenge visit www.a-to-zchallenge.com.
