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.

Thank you for the read.

This reads like warm silk, and there is such a sense of contentment within your words here. Even if the Heavens don't echo anything back, that moment is still as perfect and blissful as you described.

Ha E no idea what you're talking about Chris, as sub tropical Scotland has shaken the clouds from our etch-a-sketchy sky, turned the screen full colour HD and almost meltified my thinkelator in the process.
And as for the scent of lavender, it's just wonderful to smell anything other than soggy dampness.

Mmmm I like this - reminding me of some of the gardens at Oxford in the distant Summers of the Late 70s - 'History is now and England'.
