Feelings in Springtime- a sestinaThe renewal of life begins with the birth of new flowers,
buds of yellow, blue, white, and red tulips,
Lovely diamond drops scattered randomly from this morning's rain.
A favorite sight of a serene bear,

but we only enclose each other in small rooms
with nothing but old laptops.
How many times I've guessed which letter could it be...
Which letter could it be?
To free us from havoc-stricken-thoughts?
