Blue-eyed spring

amidst sepia leaves
and white-ash twigs
spring sun rises at last

skirt me green
with thumbs so new
dewdrops slip from my crown-

drizzle me blue
deep shade of lake
pregnant with reverance

and I'll spin
stars, cotton wishes
and spice, roasted by sun-



Blue-eyed wild flower, Riverwood

  3. That's such a joyful, lyrical Quadrille, Grace! I love the lines:
    'drizzle me blue
    deep shade of lake
    pregnant with reverance'.

  4. It is drizzling (maybe outright raining) where I am right now. I liked the idea of the sun "roasting" the cotton wishes.

  5. First of all, the title is a poem all by itself. I just want to sit her and imagine spring having all sorts of different eye color shades. Of course, I want them to be some shade of purple, but blue sounds really pretty too. ;)

    I can't pick a favorite line or stanza. This is an absolutely flawless poem. Perfect in every way, my dear. Reading your poetry is like walking through a magic forest.
