New Shoots

A Poem by Christine Anne Shaw

September sun has slipped from sight,
in rich delight a sky allures.
She wears a shade of crimson rose
that floods the river as he flows.
I find my thoughts return to you.

In solitude there comes a swell,
a tide of warmth that rushes in.
Its sweetness heady like a scent
for love is wondrous when it's meant.
I find my thoughts return to you.

You tiptoe softly on my soul,
while cosy in your mother's womb
and you for me are heaven sent.
I love you with my heart's content.
I find my thoughts return to you.

When you arrive what happiness
will bless us with your tiny ways.
November days will gift us spring.
New life, new shoots, new everything.
I find my thoughts return to you.

A lovely prospect to look forward to by you, Chris! The joy and anticipation of a new baby are some of the most exciting days to experience. Everything is fresh and possible and before you. That new presence brings so much to every day.

Congratulations! I enjoyed the structure of this. It reminded me of a villanelle with the repeated line. You are always good at structured poetry. I should try harder at that.

A lovely poem. Makes me happy to read.

Absolutely wonderful write, so strong and eloquent throughout and of course finishing the stanzas with 'my thoughts return to you' is perfect.

Thank you so much nazia, your response very much appreciated.

Chris
O! Congratulations! I'm reminded of Luke 12:7: “But every hair of the hairs of your heads is numbered, therefore you shall not be afraid, because you are better than a multitude of sparrows.” That you have written this before the birth is so very special. How excited you must be for November's spring.

Those tiny toes do it for me too Ruby. Thank you for your visit.

Chris
One day, the new-born will discover your poetry and want to know more about you, I'll bet. The birth of a new baby is always a proud and happy one. I wish your family all the best.

Many thanks Fay. We are all looking forward to the new arrival.

Chris
Such softly thought hopes and dreams for what will be, in the never ending cycle of life. As the new arrives, we take our new label and place in the lineage of of future yesterday's, but more importantly, in the today.
Sounds like congratulations are in order Chris. This can be a future bedtime tale. Who knows, maybe a new poet in the making 😀

aw, she will love this when she is born....and when she is old enough to read it...
the last line of each stanza is perfect...not only in its repetition but in speaking of the repetition of thoughts that "return to you"---
I like happy poems...and as Eilis said, really good form and structure....i too seldom do anything structured except haiku and senryu...
i admire those who do them well.
