Spring Feelings

Spring Feelings

written by: Karin Porter

 

I’ve felt this way before
Every spring, in fact
Feelings I can’t put my finger on
I try to focus on it,
Like a sneeze that’s getting away
Leaving me so unsatisfied
Feelings in spring are wondrous,
The perfume in the air intoxicating
Setting off old embers that never died
Bringing wistful hopes and shattered dreams
Back to the surface, still beautiful
Even if they never happened and never will
Spring is fleeting,
Like my dreams
The perfume’s cap goes back on
Stifling my passion
At least another year

My name is Karin Porter. I am from Newton Upper Falls, MA. Writing has been my life long passion. My favorite writing is in my personal journals. I have regular day to day life journals, and others for my work experiences, gardening, childhood memories, and dreams/poetry. From 1991-2001 I wrote, edited and published "What's Brewin'", a fan newsletter all about the Boston Bruins hockey team. In those early Internet days, my newsletter helped connect Bruins fans from all over the world. I made many friends, having become pen pals with many of the people who subscribed. I started my blog "Life is What you Make it" in 2011. It is not a money maker, but it brings me personal satisfaction. I write posts about everyday life, and thinking positive. I am a certified Activity Director, who plans and implements activities for nursing home patients. My hobbies include photography, drawing, painting, cooking, and gardening. I LOVE animals more than life itself. God has been good to me!
