Glimmering Glory

Glimmering Glory

Walking in late
afternoon shadows
I see the
Sun’s golden
rays shooting
arrows through
heavily laden
boughs
of lush green
foliage
Streaking
Laser beams
Piercing
the forest floor
Spanish moss
hanging in
dreadlocks
on ancient oaks
mysterious
and beckoning
The light
and dark
playing tricks
with the eyes
as I am lured
by the beauty
Exquisite
Stunning
in its
glimmering glory

Bjorn is hosting D'Verse Poets tonight
and has prompted us to write a list
to help with our poetry. I am always
inspired by nature and my list was created
by the things I find beautiful.

    You had me at /Spanish moss hanging in dreadlocks/. Tis lovely, and the listing fades into the poem, and does not call attention to itself; cool.

    I like your description of moss as “dreadlocks”.

    I like this kind of light
    “rays shooting
    arrows through
    heavily laden
    boughs”
