Day 10 ~ Let's Write a Spring Senses Poem

Day 10 ~ Spring Senses Poem

This is a simple little “finish the line” format that involves the five senses. With the crazy weather most of us have been having, you might have to dig deep for what you THINK Spring is like. You can use a single word (or two) or create a sentence as long as you wish. It’s basically a “free verse” pattern, but feel free to make rhyming endings if that’s what comes to you. Have fun!!

Spring Senses Poem
Spring looks like _____________________.
Spring sounds like ____________________.
Spring feels like ______________________.
Spring smells like _____________________.
Spring tastes like _____________________.

Here’s what I came up with:
Well, even my “one word” answers often ended up as two words. Sigh ~

Spring looks like sunshine.
Spring sounds like birds singing.
Spring feels like a cool breeze.
Spring smells like mint leaves.
Spring tastes like strawberries.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~
Spring looks like the excited anticipation in my grandchild’s eyes.
Spring sounds like lawn mowers, sprinklers, birds chirping and children laughing.
Spring feels like a soft bunny, the wind blowing across your face and a gentle hug.
Spring smells like orange blossoms, a baby fresh out of a bath and the earth after a soft rain.
Spring tastes like Jello Jigglers, strawberries and cotton candy.

Spring Senses Poem

Spring looks like a robin's red breast
Spring sounds like birds twittering in the trees
Spring feels like a warm sweet caress
Spring smells like a honey suckle breeze
Spring tastes like ripe strawberries on your breath

That's what Spring is to me!
(I had to add the last line to finish the rhyme :o)
