the marriage of earth and heaven

conjoined by ropes of low-lying clouds
azure skies caress smooth green cheeks
of rolling hills.

i dream once more of aqua kisses,
taste summer spice.

stop! listen to rustling leaves.
warm winds carve swaths in trees
for night stars to peek through at midnight.

Our hostess for dVerse Quadrille Monday is Grace and we all would love to see your poem of exactly 44 words, using the word, GREEN. Wide open opportunity–jump on in.

  2. Rosemary Nissen-Wade says:

    Lush and sensual.


  3. Love the last stanza Victoria! If only one cares to observe one will notice such helping out among nature’s elements. Great observation!



  4. Glenn Buttkus says:

    A lovely image that could use some sprucing up in reality. I fear sometimes that the planet my grandchildren will inherit will be bleak & mean-spirited, like captured killer whales that revert to their baser nature & slay their captors. Like Grace, you had me with /I dream of aqua kisses/.


  5. Gosh I can smell see and taste all of it~!


  6. banya sigh says:

    OMG, I LOVE this. So gorgeous, from the first word to the last. I think the second stanza is probably my favorite part.

    Such a gorgeous quadrille, Victoria: ‘azure skies caress smooth green cheeks/of rolling hills’ and ‘warm winds carve swaths in trees/for night stars to peek through at midnight.’
