Springtime Memory for Heads or Tails

Skittles at Heads or Tails posts this prompt: Share a Springtime memory.
Skittles also notes that she's going on a short vacation (Have Fun!) and Misty will be holding down the fort this week. Thanks, Misty!

Lilacs and Love

scent of lilacs
zephyr borne
calls me home

near the back step
the fragile bush
blossoms sweet

fragrant as spring
fresh and warm
as parents’ love


Altered digital photo.

Parents love is indeed warm.

Mmmmmmmmmmm, how I love lilacs. And don't have any down here, it's too hot year 'round. But we had a huge lilac hedge in Colorado and ohhhhh, the fragrance! You can't beat it.

Loved you HoT entry. Mine is posted, and Easter memory of 1954. Come on over for a visit if you can find time today, I'd love your company.

Really warm poem. Makes me long for my two lilac bushes, still covered over in snow, but with lovely big buds on them.

I love the memory in poem format and the image is lovely. Very creative!

What a beautiful choice of words. Lovely picture. What is the flower?

Beautiful! Bravo! :D I adore the scent of lilacs. I was so thrilled when I found out the bush right outside my bedroom window's a lilac bush. The scent reminds me of summer, though. Someday I'll explain that.

I had never experienced lilacs until I moved way up North. I have fallen in love with them, but I don't have the warm association you do with home. You've expressed it so beautifully here.

I share your great love of lilacs too. These are so lovely; I can smell the purple flowers already. Thanks for that on this barely above zero day.
