Frothy Blush


(internet photo)

Eastern skies parade
pinks and earthy oranges.

New spring colors burst forth,
tinting clouds and mountains,
a frothy blush of strawberry milkshake
cool creaminess.

Skyscrapers glow warm peach
and sweet cantaloupe melon flesh.

A natural palette of intense hues
display a timeless beauty.
Spring’s theme – perfect any time of the year!

    This is my favorite of the recent posts so far because of the fresh language you use. Thanks for visiting my blog. I need to go there more often. Happy Spring!

    Indeed you were inspired! I love the “fresh language” terramere refers to in your poem. You have created a visual feast, Mary. I particularly liked “A frothy blush of strawberry milkshake/ cool creaminess” – almost the 17 syllables of a haiku!

    It’s always fun to write something “light” 🙂
