Fields of Gold

Fields of Gold

Golden fields of wheat
blowing in summer breeze
Reminiscent of her
wayward, flaxen hair
The color of the sun
and bees’ honey
Her hands would pull
it back and tie
with a satin ribbon
Her eyes blue like the sky
and freckled sun-kissed face
The picture of summer
A time of growth
and abundance
Until the wheat harvest
and fields lay bare
Fall would come
and take her with
the warmth
Leaving an emptiness
Cold and bare
A time to mourn
her absence
but she would return
She always did
When the days
grew long again
and the 
wheat would wave
once more

Grace at D’Verse Poets has a guest tonight,
Rosemarie Gonzales from A Reading Writer.
She shared some beautiful Pablo Neruda
poetry with us and prompted us with the
word “Wheat”

Sailing

Sailing

Teak decks
warm to the bare foot
Soft wind blowing
the sails of romance
Pure white
against a backdrop
of grey-blue skies
and cotton puff clouds
 
Tousled hair
framing a face
with sun-kissed cheeks
The glowing embers
of sunset
reflected in her eyes
and the delight
of sailing in the smile
