Fields Ablaze with Wild Flowers

A dry stone wall
of moss-grown granite
staggers,
lush undulating plains
swaggers,
fields ablaze with wildflowers 
bows
at a curvaceous hollow
where a copper stream gurgles below.
 
Sheep fluff velvet meadows
mirror cotton clouds above.
Stooped,
they graze
on buttercup fields
Blotched blurs,
they climb 
to higher ground
where 
Lilting melodies 
lace the trees
sweeping the air
with apple blossom
on a dove day afternoon

Written for Francine Roberts contest "Flowers" by Eiken Laan 27 January 2011.

    Wonderful. As I read all these flower poems, I can see that beautiful things make the most beautiful poems. That is so obvious but it's cool to see it portrayed nonetheless. Congratulations on this gem with my highest rating here. LUv, Andrea
