Echoes Of Lavender

Echoes Of Lavender

A Poem by Chris Shaw
"

(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

A wonderful place. And someone to share it with. How better to spend a summer day? Reminds me of numerous rides with a girlfriend when I was younger. Parking our bikes by the creek. Thanks for the memories, my friend. Beautiful words and images of a simpler time.

So lovely and heavenly and nature it actually reminds me of classical music the different instruments Mozart Bach Hayden Beethoven it relaxes
me and Mozart helps me
focus.

I'm doing better

I had a relapse when
I was healing
from my biopsy

Oh how I love the last verse... If our golden days echoes later on a burning summer day, then that was definitely a heaven! I thoroughly enjoyed your descriptive verses... It's a pleasure to read you...
