I love plants, my thumbs get green just thinking about going out and planting ny containers. My front n' back yard, a profusion of blooms.Not quite, that is one of my dreams, lol. I joined Poets United this past year. A friend suggested I give it a try; thank you, Sherry ~ Sherry writes amazing poems and stories!
I love the process, sometimes I like what I came up with; other times, feel something is lacking. It is a challenge. I thought since I love flowers,plants and I'm mentioning poetry today. Why not combine the two. A challenge of writing a poem using names of plants. I love when you buy seeds, the unique colorful names, like Crazy Daisy, Moulin Rouge, Fireworks, and Cherries Jubilee.
Here is my attempt:
Impatien for full sun Psychedelic Spring dances and shouts
Look at me...
Summer Wine attracts many a suitor
Hardy Ivory Prince arrives on a carpet of Crystal Rose
In his path prodigal Red Riding Hood, her intensity is noted
Pixie Bells nod their heads
He bows to Queen Anne’s Lace n' King Slaw, on his way to Silver Bay
His staff did RSVPea
He lingers at Loves-Lies-Bleeding
He picks his beloved a treasure, fresh off the vine a Black Pearl
Pristine White Wedding blooms hover,
Their snowy white performance is breathtaking
Four O’ Clock trumpets announce High Tea
Sophia arrives, pretty n’ tough her presence outstanding
Her Fancy Dress, rosy pink n' creamy white ruffles
Red breasted robins nibble on Purple Majesty, spikes dusted with gold
Her Amber Kiss is bold n’ sensational
Deep midnight blue blooms, twinkle like stars in all their Morning’s Glory
By the Silver Bay
Buttery moonlight scrambles up vines clinging to time worn fence
Profusion of the Northern Lights n' Dancing Stars lends
