The Lure of Lavender

As I stand alone 
     in reverie
A lavender sky 
     envelopes me.
Trees whisper in calls 
     with quiet breath
To mark the time 
     of indigo's death.

The crisp scent of spring 
     refines the air
As dawn graces twilight 
     with colors rare.
Still lake reflections 
     in morning light
Share an aura 
     with alluring sight.

    Thank you Paul. You don't often see a lavender sky, but when you do it is breathtaking. Hugs, Connie

    I needed to bathe in words such as these this cool October morning, they remind me Connie, that another Spring will soon arrive, as we wait at the gate, between here and there, we'll have to take good care, thanks for sharing Connie, one of your old gems, but a goodie xxx

    Magnificent images, Connie. Iolanda sent me a photo of lavender fields and I couldn't believe how spectacular the colors were. You have painted "The Lure of Lavender" very well! Best wishes in the contest. Love, Carolyn
