A Wreath on Dusk

How often I have watched the sun descending into dusk, and dusk, absorbing sun, exudes bright flavors for the eye. It's eye candy, often variegated, splendid in its hue. Those hues, dessert at end of day, sweeten with succulent delight. What delight in skies of mango, cantaloupe or marmalade, a marmalade of tangerine with raspberry mixed in! Sometimes in vanilla skies are Crème brûlée or honeyed gold; golden dollops of meringue above a lemon ball of sun. Other times, sun lies concealed by clouds in chocolate skies, or chocolate with the purple-gray of poi in cotton candy wisps of pink - pink or bright red cherry heavens, sometimes luscious plum - that plum reflected in blueberry seas; what treat in watching dusk! by Andrea Dietrich/written Aug. 9, 2012 For PD's Nature Contest

    You've opened my eyes to the sunsetting sky's with your delectable turning to nights. I had no idea there was such a sea of dimming the daily lights. I'm too busy watching all the reality botching. In the evening crap on tv. Which stands to reason in this time of season we should just go outside and see. Luck! :):)

    I just did a delightful drowning in your huge fruit bowl. Deeeelicious! Luck in the contest. daver

    Revisiting this one ...almost 20 syllables in each brings a slow rhythm while I read the poem.

    Water Dance on fb is open to the public and I have elected not to limit people to LIKE first before they may view my posts. I hope you enjoy it - as much as I appreciate you taking your time in instructing me in the use of syllable counts. Love, Suzette

    An awesome write here.....such a colorful poem...Love it!

    Re your comment on my "gg" poem: I did find a write up of George Herbert on Also, Nette's example and the actual poem illustrates the reversal of the last 4 line's words and the repetition of the opening line, in the last line. Maybe it is the mathematician in me that easily finds patterns in words and nature... I will elaborate on it on my fb page, Water Dance. This is a difficult assignment. I, also, wrote DUSK, and illustrated it. It is now posted on my Timeline. Luv, Suzette

    yesha. I just don't understand. I went back and checked the example poem. and the originator of this form did not do his wreath form that way you and Suzette are saying. What am I not seeing???
  1. Date: 8/10/2012 11:40:00 PM

    Wow! Andrea you paint a yummy picture of dusk here. But yes I think too that the first word/words of the poem should be the last too. Just check dear..good luck to you!

    A real fantastic write from a great poet like you, Andrea. I am sure this wins! I have enjoyed reading it. Good luck always!

    Well...YUM!:) A great sensory write, Andrea. Love the bright and colourful imagery. Thanks for the comment, I didn't use a translator, but I'm thinking I've made a couple of errors.:( Best wishes, and lots of fun with that contest!! love, Mikki
