full circle haiku

 
last snow melt reveals

bright blue-eyes blossom in lawn

startling beauty

_____

dune sunflower blooms

beach birds will feast on dry seeds

taste of salty waves

_____

clouds sail azure sky

dappled appaloosa horse

grazes wild meadow

_____

row of poplar sways

warm sun coaxes leaves to bud

gentled by spring rain

love is a rose is a
rose is a tightly rolled
tender bud is a sweetly
opening blossom is a slow
unfurl of soft petaled glory is an
irresistible, heady fragrance
is a wilting passion ravishly
spent is a sharp thorn
prick to the heart

 

We’re smelling the roses at dVerse poetics and writing 44-word quadrilles!
