Elusive spring :

Spring has been a little bit erratic and evasive of late, hijacked by both Winter and Summer. Just thought I would add some art to fill in the lapses.

 

Birds ‘n’ Spring

The poem below is by the comedian Spike Milligan, who was prone to recite it at odd moments and for no particular reason.

Spring is Sprung

Spring is sprung, the grass is ris.
I wonders where the birdies is.
They say the birds is on the wing.
Ain’t that absurd?
I always thought the wing was on the bird.

The late Spike Milligan moved from the England to an Eastern coastal town in Australia called Woy Woy, which I thought was appropriate because he was known to look at the sky and exclaim Why Why?  The Aboriginal meaning for Woy Woy is ‘deep water’. “But which Woy means deep and which Woy means water ?”, was a question Spike liked to ask.

 

Spring (Again)
Michael Ryan

The birds were louder this morning,
raucous, oblivious, tweeting their teensy bird-brains out.
It scared me, until I remembered it’s Spring.
How do they know it? A stupid question.
Thank you, birdies. I had forgotten how promise feels.

 

Jasmine

spring is poppin’
bunnies are hoppin,
birdies are chirpy
felines are flirty
frogs are burpy
squirrels are gnawin
the ice is thawin’
magnolia hues intoxicating
jasmine scents un-abating
smiling muscles they’re hurtin’
coz that sunshine keeps burstin’

 

“Come you lost Atoms to your Centre draw,
And be the Eternal Mirror that you saw:
Rays that have wander’d into Darkness wide
Return and back into your Sun subside”

The Conference of the Birds, Sufi Poems of Farid ud-Din Attar
