Sweet Strawberries & Sunflowers

Sweet Strawberries & Sunflowers

A Poem by Fran Marie

for me.
picked fruit
and cut flowers 
brings back fond
memories of morning
bliss spent in sweet
serenity with you

that afternoon after
the sun escaped to
a distant horizon 
and evening shadows
ushered in a heavenly
summers lush breeze

and light raindrops 
licked our lips as
we stood there kissing
in the mist of a magic moment


and I found myself
very much in your
presence..
falling into your arms once more..
lured by
your charismatic charm

and more raindrops fell
late into a soft summer night
 of love

A rarity, Fran... a romantic poem worth reading again and again. The imagery here is spectacular. By the third reading, I was thinking of the aromas and tastes, maybe some good wine with those strawberries on a moonlit night, rain falling on a tin roof. A perfect day/night captured in this poem.

dearest Fran... your poem is like a Waterfall where
romance lingers in the sun and feelings become
a pleasure of berries ready to burst in prisms of
lustful dreams. tenderly, Pat

lol..thanks Gee..
I so appreciate;

I'm green with envy at such romantic writing. I'm not a romantic, but this is irresistible . . . nobody could read this without wishing to be one or the other of your couple. Great use of alliteration & other "sound" effects that make your words read like a tumbling brook. The title captures two of the most iconic aspects of "summer" for me! My strawberries have been so huge & red this summer! Thanks for taking me on a romantic scamper (((HUGS))) Fondly, Margie

Picked fruit, cut flowers evoke the senses. Sunflowers, sweet tasting fruit, all speak to me of summer. Something wonderful about strawberry picking and sampling as you go. And those raindrops on lips, add to the romance. Nicely set up for a night of loving.
