Violet Grove

The trees, boasting about their colors, weep Having been newly blossomed they have clout Hidden behind the purple cloud they seep Blending beside each tree wishing about Reflecting image in the water true The trees, boasting about their colors, weep Thinking about love, this image brings you Secure as this grove pleasantly to keep Violet leaves stem out, getting what they reap Our house’s concealed beyond the world of trees The trees, boasting about their colors, weep The massive powers bring me to my knees Slowly I approach this island by boat Purple glow becomes greater, allowing sleep I’m surely enamored by the tree’s coat The trees, boasting about their colors, weep

    A gripping & stunning bit of scenery here. You have my mind wandering now. Excellent job! A touching end to this piece too.

    Interesting work that you have penned..Spring and fall bring such beautiful color to the forest but winter has its own beauty as well when we can see the angles and lines of the woods..Of course, some places get to see the woods fill with snow..Thanks for stopping by..Your comments are always valuable to me..Sara
