the time of blossoming



wrapped in shawl of green
inside me white queen
waiting
in shadows to glean
slate of rain - its sheen
blazing
bare earth - velveteen
the trees pink wild - scene

of ardor, i lean
where red, blue birds preen
shaking 
feathers -  so serene
spring sun slips between
waking
inside me, white queen
wrapped in shawl of green

  1. I like how you combined the two stanzas of your lai nouveau together by making them part of a single phrase.

  2. I love the parallel between you and nature... I really feel a bit of blooming inside myself.

  4. I love both of yours, particularly the Cinderella. My comment went awry. But this one also shows the beauty you can create in the form. Blooming brilliant!
