Summer bride




They're frilly skirts to my morning bouquet
Leaves with seedy wands, trailing wisps and spray
Their sheen, glossy-green, sun-crinkled
against riot of raspberries,   ruffled-wrinkled

As I walk, my hair is nest of blooms, cress,
Queen Anne’s Lace, and pleated wheat. No regrets, 
no doubts.  Morning tangs of fresh lemon, stillness
that brims as I stand beside you, summer's fullness

  3. You seem to work with rhyme like a second nature; lovely in its imagery & brevity. I like the lines /sun-crinkled/against riot of raspberries/ruffled-wrinkled/.

  6. I know this challenge was all about the rhyme (which you excelled at, as well), but OHMYGOODNESS, this phrase:
    "riot of raspberries"

    Fantastic.

  9. I can't even tell you what I see in the title. It's too naughty. :X

    I love this section:
    "sun-crinkled
    against riot of raspberries, ruffled-wrinkled"

    Also the way you describe your hair, especially how there's "no regret" woven into your hair. That is AWESOME.

    This too: "Morning tangs of fresh lemon, stillness"

    You're such a gorgeous writer.

    "riot of raspberries" ... man, that's so good

  15. Their sheen, glossy-green, sun-crinkled
    against riot of raspberries, ruffled-wrinkled

    The rhyming stands out most eloquently Grace! Crinkled and wrinkled are classic sounding words!

  16. words exchanged, beneath lush trees,
    the fecund bounty, pollen-laden bees,
    buzz around, dragonfly ends a life,
    delicate sunlit kiss, now a wife

      I love the rhyming verses during the wedding. But sad for that dragonfly who dies. Thanks Brian!

  24. I was once, in my youth, a Summer bride. I think about it now and then although we have long since parted ways. Lovely post.
