Dawn kick-starts the day delightfully assaulting the senses with a conflation of lambent colors and shapes Unfolding slowly changing with each moment The rising sun pushing back remnants of night’s darkness reflecting its image in the mirrored lake Heralding what is to come
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
Linda from Charmed Chaos is hosting D'Verse Poets tonight and has prompted us with Flowers. She asked us to write a poem as if we were the flower. I was inspired by the beauty of Calla Lillies and their simplicity.
