illuminate the hedgerows
imitating clouds of primrose
landing on the sensual mouths
of bluebell, scilla and hyacinth,
intoxicated on their April scent
Kim M. Russell, 2018
Sanaa has shared with us a spring poem about by Edna St. Vincent Millay. She has also given us lists of words from which we should choose one list of four words and come up with our own brief creation, keeping our poems under 100 words. I chose the list with: sensual, features, blue, mouth.
I really wanted a photograph of the little yellow butterflies I keep seeing around our village, but when I grab my camera, they magically disappear – unlike the primroses!
