Blooming Cardinal


Over in the Garden, Magaly mentioned how some flowers were named after animals.  She witnessed Frog Cups in New York, which inspired this prompt.   I selected the Cardinal Vine-a 
hummingbird favorite.


Ruby Red Slippers


Jungle green feathers
cling, climb
glorious
cousins
creating
 peek-a-boo 
premiere screen

Blooming
ruby red slipper-
skimmer fashions for
 winged fairies to
saturate
Walk of Fame
sipping Mimosas
among perfumed 
celebrities.

Love this description! That vine is beautiful! Love the ruby slippers on the fairies!
Magaly Guerrero said…
Love how well your poem describes the contrast between the blooms and the green. And yes, that is definitely Red-Carpet Red. I see the sipping quite clear. ;-)
Susan said…

Very pretty poem, Ella-- always light and delightful. k.
Jim said…
This is nice, Ella. But I think we are all about ready for a party, you are telling about sipping Mimosas. At Angie's I tried to crash a chalk stick party but not sure if an invite yet.
It is getting looney, than goodness only one more day.

Jim said…
Oh yes, the dog is Adi, Adi Jane.
But she died September, 2013. I have a hard time still, I miss her. She also was a therapy dog, we were an animal therapy team.

Oh Jim-I am so sorry! I lost my hound in January. I miss him so~ I knew getting my containers around the deck would be difficult. I love to plant seedlings. He would chase the bunnies that love to taunt him underneath the deck. He and my muse were best friends~ Thankful we both have our memories of these furry angels!!

Jim-lol! I know it...Looney Tunes describes my previous comment.
