Words of a painter about art, painting and other thoughts about life, death and things that get in the way.
I so like "In the morning, a show of lacy sparklers." Beautiful image!
ha. love how you brought this together...at first i was wondering where you were going...an excellent unveiling there at the end...happy one shot!
Sublime imagery in this piece, thanks for sharing
Lovely and taut, Annell. I too liked the unexpected ending. Brilliantly written. Thank you. Gay
Very interesting, and a great closing line.
Flower inspired art. I love it. Trees inspired me this week. I love nature.
Enjoyed reading your poem, and think the last two lines: "Then tightly clinched fists, as tight as little clams, / In the morning, a show of lacy sparklers." Beautiful images. Happy One Shot!
Annell I love this! I have Sanseverias (aka Snake plant and mother-in-laws tongue) and I love it when they bloom, they smell so good... I absolutely love the imagery...
I like the flow, the spare language, the vivid finish.
As Dianne pointed out, I've always called those Mother In Law's Tongues. I enjoyed this, Annell. :-)
Oh a lovely poem for a plant that I always thought had a terrible name - mother-in-law's tongue. I have never seen this plant flower, it makes it so beautiful and you words do it justice.
Lovely piece - I have never seen this plant either...I learned something new in the beautiful poem today...thank you...bkm
Enchanting. I love the last line, which just shimmers.
