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.

Heaven awaits in reality and dreams. The final abode will be magical and charming, more so as you describe in this magical poem.

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!

You're welcome.
Sounds like a moment of the past recalled. Chris, I think you could make a fortune writing landscape descriptions for real estate companies. After reading this offering, anyone would want to buy a home in such a location.

A poignant write, Chris. So romantic to walk through the garden with the one you love, but knowing one of you will leave first. Will dreams become reality in heaven....if indeed there is a heaven. Not sure, but I am sure this poem is touching, Chris.
