Echoes Of Lavender

Echoes Of Lavender

A Poem by Chris
"

(a revamped poem)

"
mist rises as newly birthed disc
of sun kisses easterly horizon's cheek
promising heightened heat on a 
sultry summer day

clouds like chariots fly past at rapid
speed in a part blue sapphire sky
hurtling on a journey to certain
dissipation

we walk waist high through scented
spikes of  fragrant purple lavender
alive with a charm of worker bees
buzzing busily at the seams

he asks me if this is a touch of heaven
I don't know I replied though when I
die if it echoes what we share here
then maybe dreams become reality

First the name really pulls the reader in, ‘Echoes Of Lavender’ is such a beautiful name. The last few lines are truly breathtaking, but even the lines before help it all tie together. It’s feels like a hot summer or spring day, even without the mention of summer, you can really read it as a warm poem, in a green grassy field.

A very scenic and vivid write. I liked the natural fragrance. Current lockdown makes it even more pleasing.

This is just to refreshingly beautiful. The sky has absolutely come alive and I don't think I'll be able to look at it again without seeing chariots racing through. Lovely imagery, Chris - sounds like heaven to me!
