Serenity Breaks entry for Promising Poets, Week #41 and napowrimo #5

Taste of green

on my tongue.

Scent of rain

on my skin.

Bursts of wind

through my hair.

Bouquets of leaves

on the rattling limbs.

The sky above

a clean and watered blue.

Fresh and crisp.

Snapping linen on the line.

Monarchs grace

their petaled thrones.

Melodies perch

on a rusted fence.

Jewels dance

on tautened strings.

Laughter lights

the scattered grasses.

Beyond the trees

sits the jaundiced beast.

Eyes glinting

and a silvered grin.

Serenity breaks.


About shannadodd

I'm a writer and a collector of words. I also tend to collect homeless critters. Currently, in addition to blogs, poems and books, I'm writing my second novel and beginning a graphic design business. When I'm not writing, I'm reading or cleaning or feeding someone. I hope you enjoy my poetry. I try, with my poems, to create pictures with words. I consider it art but not with my chin thrust out or my nose pointing skyward, it's art in the sense that like the painter or photographer I want to capture a moment or event or question. If I do that for you, I've succeeded. Thank you for reading and for your comments. It's means so much to me that folks are reading my poems.
