The Saturday Symphony #24 (Easter)

Hey everyone,
Welcome to the 24th edition of The Saturday Symphony.
March madness is ending and the Easter holidays are upon us.

A quarter of the year gone and April is perfectly positioned for a bit of rest, fun and rejuvenation,
Highlighted by the long Easter break.

Yolk of sweetest cream
The glory of a risen saviour

Albumen of deepest chocolate
The delicacy of love

Shell of iridescent beauty
A signature of happiness
To have you as one of mine
To make an Easter egg
Special for you

April
A time to say
‘Thank you’

March’s five featured posts

In too few words
you say the things that hurt the most:
‘I’m leaving’
‘It is over’
‘It was never really love.’…

In too few words by Ingrid

…Then how is it that the air carries life
Even around a lonely grave?…

Faith, hope, love by Diana

…In Gaia’s service
as rival to Pandora:
her jar is emptied.

Tsunami by Chris Hall

Snow sheets echo, escaping death down a wispy sky’s veil…

Sheer lives by Kalei Kites

…They leaned into the pale rays
Of a thin sun of diaphanous gauze
As its warming flames, auroral…

The granite walls by Visionary poems

Please follow the links below each quote to read the full post.

Easter
A time when hope is renewed
And faith is repaid
When grief and loss
Transition to fond memory

For the belief in resurrection
Soothes the souls of the living
And appeases the restless dead

PONDEROUS THOUGHT Prompt

EASTER
This month;
Share a bit of your Easter traditions,

Through darkness and sorrow
Struggle and exhaustion
Easter rises
To tell of One who descended into the bowels of hell
One who reached through the torment and despair

A symbol of hope
That there is no darkness
That can keep out the light

Ponderous submissions from March’s prompt.

ADDICT

insatiable yearning
inevitable kindling
repeated scorching
and yet we touched…

Touched by Mindfills

broken hourglass, the sand can no longer shift
from either end…
breaking it didn’t stop time…

Craving answers by Jules

a forever lullaby
from pretty little pills…

the mind slumbers
as sensations dance
til the break of dawn…

Timing by Eugi.

…Not all addictions destroy, some can save too.

There are always two side of a coin, positive and negative…

Addiction by Sadje

Reparations are too late

Addictions by artmater.

Thank you all, lots of love.

Easter bunny
What’s so funny
Why so happy
Hop hop hop
With hope, hope, hope
And hidden eggy joys
Some with toys
Some with thoughts
And All with love
So come dear one
And share;
My Easter eggs

    Thank you for including my poem here Jude, it’s an honour. I enjoyed reading your thoughts on Easter. I’ll be hosting an Easter ‘Sonnet Sunday’ next week so look out for that if you like writing sonnets!

      I love sonnets but not sure if I’ll be writing on Sunday. I usually repost something from the week, but I’ll try.

      It’s my pleasure to feature this deep poem.

    There are so many wonderful April/Spring traditions. Eggs are very much a part of many faiths as a sign of renewal.

    May we all find a renewed sense of adventure and purpose (as at least for those in the colder areas where we are warming up in spring) as the earth warms and blossoms!

    Much activity in and out of my home in March so I’m behind on a few things. So good to see plants blooming! 🌷🌼🌻🌺🥀

    Thanks for the feature of my post on your previous prompt (((Hugs))).

    Jude, what a wonderful post and how incredibly awesome that you share others’ posts here. April/Easter to me are symbols of hope, that the dark is overcome and life returns. I love discovering new growth everywhere which brings me such awe thinking how the Master Creator designed all of Mother to die and return back to life. All of us could learn much from Mother if we allow Her to teach us. Just loved this post!! Thank you! xo
