Shadows of Green

My response to dVerse Poets Pub Quadrille 9 – green

100_0719 (2)

Emerald light

Filtered through foliage

Transmutes into shadows of green,

A mute cocoon of verdant solitude,

A shroud unseen.

Words are leaves that fly,

Animated by breath of breeze

To stop mouths and ears of passers-by,

Who don’t see

The poet under the tree.

  1. I specially love: Words are leaves that fly ~

    I think most people don’t see poets, but it is our words that will get us noticed or not, maybe ~

    Have a wonderful week Kim ~

    1. Hi Kat and thank you for your kind words. Although it’s been overcast here today, thankfully it hasn’t rained. I took some photographs in Vienna last week and bought some postcards at the Belvedere, which I hope will inspire some poems this week. Then it’s off to Italy at the end of next week for my daughter’s wedding. 😊
