dVerse — Quadrille 165 — Our Living Dream

Image from geopsych

Warm colors your smile
under blue twinkles.
Summer-dreamed lane,
shrubs in hula leaf skirts
beneath green canopy;
hands braille the way.
We walk fragrant zones,
from humus to spruce;
inhale transcendent
scent of rose, carried
soft as bunny fur, along
this, our living dream.

I am today’s host of dVerse’ Quadrille Monday.  I say:
Pen us a poem of precisely 44 words (not counting the title), including some form of the word warm.

    This is such a peaceful quadrille, Lisa. I especially enjoyed the image of ‘shrubs in hula leaf skirts’ and the phrase ‘hands braille the way’.

    When the seasons change and this dream becomes a reality it is a most wonderful experience. Loved your lines…
    Shrubs in hula leaf skirts…
    and
    Brailling our way through the forest.

      It’s like that here too, Truedessa. I escape into the fantasy realm and walk there. I hope you got my comment on your poem. Blogspot seems to be having technical difficulties?
