Flowers almost embrace
the blushing clouds of morning
broken by a kiss of light,
and the blue of new beginnings
lifts the purple shadows
~through an open window~
birdsong, music of summer mornings
calls rain, recalls life
in honeyed glow—
dream whispers that linger
in pink sprays, above the trees
the wind sings if, when, now.
My message, another puente, from the Oracle. She likes to be a bit enigmatic, but she knew–of course–that I went out for a long walk this morning.
Now why am I not even remotely surprised that our poems are the same, yours leaner, mine with more gush 🙂
Hahaha. I just read yours, and that’s exactly right. Same feeling, and gushing with lyricism is good.
I was struck by the whisper in the middle of both poems. The Oracle drew my eye to it.
That’s so funny because I debated it and moved/reworded, but the Oracle insisted I use it. 😀
Of course she did! She even stuck a string of ses on the page I took the word from to hammer it home 🙂
She can be very insistent! 😀
She leaves nothing to chance (it goes with the job I suppose).
Haha. I suppose so!
Absolutely gorgeous, Merril. And that photo is stunning!
Thank you so much, Jill!
I love every word of your poem, particularly “the blue of new beginnings.” And I can see how the flowers on your walk inspired it.
Thank you so much, Liz. I’m not sure if the flowers inspired it–it’s a strange process working with the magnetic tiles. Sometimes the Oracle is very insistent or persistent about particular words. 😀
You’re welcome, Merril. However the Oracle decides to work, I’m a fan!
I love this beautiful work of word artistry and the all the color references. The colors and hues really spoke to me.
Thank you so much. I’m so pleased you enjoyed it.
I saw my first Rose of Sharon tree of the season blooming today. Pink.
Your words are so peaceful. My wind was singing too but not so peacefully. (K)
Thank you, Kerfe. I hope things are more peaceful now.
At the moment just hot.
This is so beautiful Merrill 💛
Thank you so much,Jude!
Very much my pleasure Merrill 🌼
Such a peaceful walk
Thank you, Derrick.
I thought of color with this one: blue sky + rosy pink flowers, purple shadows??
I’m not clear what you’re asking, Marian. You can think of anything you want!😀 I did not intend the poem to be about color blending but if that’s where your mind went, then that’s as valid as anything else. Certainly the day’s hues are constantly changing.
Delete the question mark! Yes, I’m commenting on the color blending that your lines suggested. 🙂
I would’ve been in lyrical mode too had I seen those gorgeous blooms in their surrounds. Thank Merril 🙂 Lovely ..
Thank you very much, Susan!
Beautiful poem! The photo is really lovely also! 🙂
Thank you so much!
Beautiful words and photo, Merril!
Thank you very much!
EGADS, the photo is gorgeous! Your poem equals it.
Awww–thank you so much, Resa!
