Red harvest

A satin scarlet moon roams
The sky at night...waltzing across the sable aisle
Like a bride afloat-her porcelain tulle trailing
Mistral sighing on fragrant Golden Wattles
Mauve clouds cruise rippling lea
Shadow-dancing into trees
Petaled winds peal into bonfires that hush
Lavender blue eyelids flushed with sleep
Spilling quietude of birds' floral tunes;
In night's fragile darkness...
Lamps flicker...fading to a waking night
A Phlox of stars trip to a tune of lyre
Like a 'forevermore'

Heady my senses, as I sit in moonlight's lush
I drain my pen of my ink
And watch the paper soak it up
I gather my scattered words
I etch a poem..

  2. What an imagery one can paint from this poem, such beauty and colors all around the bright sky. It’s amazing how you can use the sky as your canvas and paint it different colors. And the ending was beautiful, you etched a poem with your scrambled words, brilliant Yassy.🌹🌹

  3. Love, love, love the last verse. And also ‘shadow-dancing into trees’, and ‘lavender blue eyelids’. It really makes a beautiful poem. Thank you for the gorgeousness. πŸ™‚

  4. The joyous discipline to craft such a work, evoking every sense – nay, demanding each sense in turn and then in concert – to glean meaning and delight: thanks Yassy. Such a Queen of Woven Words. May your pen always glisten!

  5. This poem has a wonderful climax and end to it. It just keeps building to illustrate your end conclusion of wanting to write poetry. I rarely see poems whose lines in it build on each other they way you do it, yassy. ❀️ As always, wonderful job. πŸ€—
