Tuesday Chatter Weekly – March 28, 2018

162412-Good-Morning-Gif

“Rest, rest, perturbed spirit!”-William Shakespeare

Word of the week-perturbed (adjective)-troubled, anxious, upset. Synonyms-aghast, abashed, alarmed, daunted, blanched, distressed, rattled, spooked, startled.

Words that rhyme or nearly rhyme-curbed, disturbed, absurd, superb.

Mother Nature clearly perturbed

Her tetchy attitude quite absurd

 Spring’s harmonies are not taught

Songbird ditties not for naught

We yearn to see buttercup smiles

Lavender scents, their grace beguiles

Flowering trees blush in rosy pink

Opening buds give us a wink

The sense of renewal, a lovely vision

Brings creative energy to fruition

Spring is a season of new beginnings

Mother nature’s grand awakening

Let’s put aside all frustrations

And welcome spring with a standing ovation
