A hymn to LIFE! Sweet!
I love it!! And I do love lavender as well!! Have a fun weekend!!
This is absolutely perfection. Could not be better.
!! Swoon of its furrowLove that and thanks for the tip. :)
I loved this poem MZ. It was really intriguing and full of compassion. "Swooning the stars to sleep," was my favorite line.
Ah lovely (though I don't mind the lavender in the pillow, truly!) k.
absolutely delightfulyou have me smilingcheersjzb
soothes the stars to sleep... is wonderful. I love lavender.
Actually thus makes me feel as a thieving the stars of their sleep by having a sachet in my bed.. the swoon of its furrow... delightful
I guess you'd prefer to let it be wild and free!
What a sweet lullaby.
in the swoon of its furrow- I love this line.
nice...that whole second stanza really makes this mz....sweet....
You have such a way with the stars...always makes me endlessly pleased to read you...thank you for joining, Mama Zen!
Sleeping stars, pillow, slumber, scratching cheek; it must be my bedtime.Nice combinations, Mom...
Prescient point. Reminds me of Howard Nemerov poem, "Because You Asked About The Line Between Prose and Poetry": Sparrows were feeding in a freezing drizzleThat while you watched turned into pieces of snowRiding a gradient invisibleFrom silver aslant to random, white, and slow.There came a moment that you couldn’t tell.And then they clearly flew instead of fell.What a difference, that furrow!
lovely; it reads like an Irish Blessingmuch love...
that second verse is exquisite, MZ. i love the contrast between the two verses and lovely phrase "scratches slumber's cheek." beautiful!♥
Sigh. Makes me want to breathe deeply. This is so nice.
This is lovely, that second stanza really touches my heart.
Lullabye. This should be showcased in A Child's Garden of Verses.
I love that "lavender left" can mean so many things. Is Lavender a person? Did she leave you in some way? Or has lavender (or Lavender) been left behind, with you? Did Lavender choose to stay, or was it/she left behind (perhaps against her will)?In any case, this is beautiful.
