It was long into the day
Before I noticed the flaming sun
Had turned my withered sod
Into a golden acre
Giant pillows above
Rests on dazzling blue sky
Suddenly whatever I thought
Yesterday— today—wasn’t true
It takes a trail of tears
To lead one back to a brilliant aurora
Where you may see a lazy housewife
Someone sees a princess
Who is becoming a Reine des Glace
Enduring Jack ice and Blue Fire
dversepoets.com prompt is “purple patch”. Gather a handful of random seeds and sow them into your imagination and see what blossoms!
From the list given I used…Blue Fire, Jack Ice, dazzling blue, trail of Tears, Reines see Glace, lazy housewife, princess, audits and golden acre.
I also posted this in aprilsaspirations.WordPress.com. With my May poems. 2 in 1. Why not.
Writing this after a sorrowful day of suddenly losing a very dear friend and writing mentor. I did not even notice the morning. So thank you Sarah. Your prompt fit well.
