A Floral Rhapsody

A Floral Rhapsody

A Poem by Carole

The hills are alive with the sound of music! A menagerie of brilliance has made its debut! Welcome!!!



A floral rhapsody

An exquisite delight

A bespangled menagerie

Multifaceted and bright


Spring has sprung

Heaven’s paint brush has emerged

Splashing colors galore

Fastidiously converged


Delicate yellow flowers

Gracing the Spanish Broom

Her scent wafting through the air

A ravishing tune


A butterfly’s indulgence

And Heavenly bliss

Intricate Red Valerian

A jubilant kiss


Purple Veronica

With riveting flamboyance

Swaying in the wind

Articulate cadence


Stately snapdragons

Pink and pale yellow

Orange California poppies

Waving a gregarious "Hello"


Snow white Alysum,

A kaleidoscope of Zinnias,

A splash of Purple Robe,

And aromatic Petunias


A floral rhapsody

An exquisite delight

A bespangled menagerie

Multi-faceted and bright

Like a garden is a feast for the nose and eyes this poem is a feast for imagination as you paint a beautiful scene so serene and blissful... It's easy to see you have the heart like the fresh blooms of spring.

How colorful! Vivid in it's imagery, perfectly-worded with great rhyming. What else could one want? A terrific poem, Carole!

haha wonderful! loved it homeskillet! i thought it was great...very articulate and descriptive, joyful in its delivery, and soulful in the love for flowers felt in this poem. however, what kind of critic would i be if i didnt try to help where ever i saw an oppurtunity for improvement? the only minor squabble i could think of was here:

Purple Veronica
With riveting flamboyance
Swaying in the wind
Articulate cadence

and the only smidgeon of a thing wrong with it was i felt that the flow of the poem was interrupted here by the necessity to elongate the syllables in "cadence" to match the feel of the word "flamboyance". However, apart from that minor bump in the road it was smooth sailing all the way through if you get what i mean haha. Bravo, homeskillet! great poem, that was very good.

Peace to you


ps. lol dont mind my usage of the word homeskillet i can be eccentric haha and do have the habit of using strange words that make me and sometimes others smile.

I do love this! It's like being in a magical garden where I could sit all day taking in it's beauty. It reminds me of a very old and beautiful animation called Water Babies.

Beautiful! Such decadence in nature is truly a splendor. You have captured that essence so well. Great work.

This is an absolute piece of perfection and beauty. The work of art that you created here is a kaleidoscope of images of spring and it's beauty astounds the reader. Total perfection.

The rhyme scheme is much tighter and better here! I loved this, too. You write such heart-filled, warm, sunny and positive poems!!! I love your style, it's absolutely amazing! You have taken all the joy in the world and made it into a poem. This really is a celebration of nature, colour and warmth. It almost reminds me of that flower scene in 'Alice In Wonderland' when all the flowers are singing and dancing together. Well, flowers are nature's jewels, and this poem really is precious.

This poem lovingly reminded me of mother who passed away a few weeks ago. She loved flowers just as much as you describe her, and the pictures and imagery in the poem was cheerful and rejuvenating.
Thanks for a great poem :)

This was just what I needed at the end of this day. Such a jubilant bit of joy to find here and thank you. This makes me want to walk outside without any shoes on and feel the dirt and grass beneath my feet, while breathing in the freshness of nature. This is like a valentine to nature and how wonderful and beautiful it can be. Thank you so much for this.

There comes a point in your life when you realize: Who matters, Who never did, Who won't anymore... And who always will. So, don't worry about people from your past, there's a reason why they didn.. more..
