Cottonwood Glances

Cottonwood Glances

A Poem by Kayla K

"In the depth of winter, I finally learned that within me there lay an invincible summer."  ~Albert Camus

"There shall be eternal summer in the grateful heart."  ~Celia Thaxter

"The summer night is like a perfection of thought."  ~Wallace Stevens

"In summer, the song sings itself."  ~William Carlos Williams


"The violets in the mountains have broken the rocks."  ~Tennessee Williams

"Break open a cherry tree and there are no flowers, but the spring breeze brings forth myriad blossoms."  ~Ikkyu Sojun

~*~

Cottonwood glances,
rose petal dances.
Foxglove wishes,
willow swishes.

~*~

Pale lavender blossoms,
faded photo albums.
Rainbow infected prisms,
dragonfly new come freedoms.

~*~

Rain drop roulette,
dodging all the drops.
Footprints in sand,
left by flip-flops.


~*~

Oak tree magnificent,
magnolia moment.
Amaryllis fragment,
imagination figment.

~*~

Sunflower flourish,
double iris magic.
Spinning time,
meadow frolic.

~*~

Carnival balloons,
left to the wind.
Climbing trees,
child knees skinned.

~*~

Evanescent whispers,
benevolent dreamers.
Dragonfly dancers,
crystallized glaciers.

~*~

Cowboy sunsets,
princess rescues.
Hidden secrets,
covering tattoos.

~*~

Climbing clematis vines,
fresh evergreen pines.

~*~

Constellation patterns,
secret heart caverns.

~*~

Washed up sea glass,
waiting on the shore.
Sweeping river,
wooden boats oar.

~*~

Front porch swings,
rocking chair flow.
Far from the west,
a breeze to blow.

~*~

Summer nights,
natural lights.
Dreams aplenty,
sing to me,
little birdie.

Author's Note

Thought up the first two lines, and the rest followed. Different than most my writing, but sometimes things have to be switched up a little, right? I guess it's my spring and summer wrapped up into a poem.

I like your improval on the rhyme structures. You're more personally involved in each.

I'm a cyclone of myself, a caterpillar delight still finding my wings. A balloon stuck up in the clouds, no one can bring me down from my high. Shattered into pieces, be careful when you pick .. more..
