Embrace the dance

Embrace the dance

A Poem by Patricia Wedel
"

Iris adorn our garden with dreams...

"



Iris love a rain dance 
in early May... 
with silver touches 
of memory... 

Visions of Mothers 
tending flowers... 
as Willows sway in 
wind-swept embraces...  

Colors of raspberry kisses 
and shadows of forever... 
hold our heart in 
Sycamore dreams...

May is one of my favorite months - being that Mother's Day always falls upon it, and it is also the wedding anniversary of my parents. I feel it's magical, always reminding us of the awakening of spring and all things possible.

Such a beautiful reading, and flower, Pat!

This is wonderfully captured Patricia. It made me remember my Gran and how when it was too wet to play outside, I used to sit on the kitchen countertop and watch all the flowers dance in the wind.
It also brought back to me the smiles, and the smell of chicken broth soup, which she was always magically making, like she knew just how many of us were coming to visit. Grans are magic like that :)

Have this habit of planting everything at the same time. Then waiting in awe as chaos reveals itself in bloom. Chelsea flower show will not be calling me.

Yes, those memories hold our hearts in their soft velvety petals. The colors of springtime burst into a rainbow in your gentle tender words, my friend. So very pretty. I hope your Mother's Day was wonderful. Lydi**

dear Lydi... thank you for lingering a moment to enjoy the memories...
truly, Pat
I love your poems, they're always so garden and Nature aware, whichever the month!
As a past landscape designer, i've seen strong men heart-smile at the look of an area he'd asked me to create. To see someone feel the colour of Iris, or the movement of sycamore branches, is absolutely wonderful. Your words make me feel similarly, Patricia. Thank you!

I love your ode to these hallmarks of the month of May, including a reference to mothers day! As may know from reading me, I love nature & you've painted it here so well. I love the references to different kinds of trees, both are trees I love here too. This is a delicious little tribute to all things "May"! *smile*
