River Daze

A Poem by Christine Anne Shaw

river musings

bouquets of wildness
spread shoulder height on far bank
spilling fine colour.

Lovely setting of a scene that screams of picnics, sun and straw boaters with deckchair striped jackets. Hope it eas strawberries and cream with a little bubbly to make it all the more memorable.
I'll just have to make do with strawberry and cream campinos and a can of tizer, huddled under a brolly as the heavens open, but we are getting a pretty spectacular lightning show at the minute. I am so getting windscreen wipers put on my kitchen windows. Got so fed up trying to look through the river running down the panes that ive dragged a chair over and opened the door to watch it.
My neighbour phoned as soon as it started and I answered with a "MUAH HA HA", took me ages to peel her off the ceiling. 😀
Don't worry, she'll get me back.
Looks to me like youre getting the hang of these high coos 😀

Love this Haiku; such vivid images in a short piece; every word means something important. Your words fit together like a puzzle. I like the way you describe the flora as being as being "shoulder height"
very well written! Fondly, B

A splash of colors near the river. A riot of hues in the wilderness. Beautiful to imagine.

Sometimes all we need is a little glimpse of heaven & all the noisy strife just fades away as we sink into a daze by the riverside. For me, it's a little creek that runs below my cabin! (((HUGS))) Fondly, Margie

Thank you Em. The banks were at their best. All pink, purple and whites.

Another lovely musing this morning.
I'm picturing purple irises. I seem to always see them growing in the wild near the edge of water
