Fortune Cookies

"Fortune cookies" was the topic for Sunday Scribblings this week. As I am having a busy weekend my contribution is short and sweet.

On a still hot day
I hear small explosions
pellets shot from seed pods
the sun is opening fortune cookies
all of them make the same promise
"spring will come again
there will be beauty"

Oh, to *hear* spring come, not just see and smell it! What a lovely poem. I love "the sun is opening fortune cookies..."

Lovely poem - and the very idea of fortune cookies merrily popping open for the sun to read - clever.

NuttersNotes said... of the best I have read today.

Sweet indeed...and a lovely image of all of the cookies opening with the same promise.

Aww, I hope those words are true.

That was simple and sweet. You're a great writer!

This is indeed both short and sweet. I took the 'fortune cookies' to be early spring flowers opening in the sun. But anyway, nothing like the promise of spring (here in the UK it seems an awful long way off as the days shorten and the days are cooling!).
