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.

Ms. Shaw I sure wish I knew how to paint because your descriptions are so divine with this scene I can see myself wandering thru these fields. I really love that last line...if it echoes what we share here then maybe dreams become reality. I wonder what he would have replied to this. Such a lovely poem lady, thank you for sharing.
