A Song Of Togetherness

Deep in my thoughts, floats a harmonious strain -  Cuckoos singing soulful melody,  Blossoms of Magnolia, array of budding Jinias,  Marigolds beaming to a dawn golden sun, I return to you, with all my hues,  From a serene blissful childhood !  Purple Hibiscus with velvety petals,  Zestful creepers sprawling on the quaint fence, Mesmerizing tall branches of serene evergreen,  With Tricksy Swallowtails,Redbreast Robin merrily whistling, Hummingbirds chirp ebullient songs, Little bushy squirrels excitedly search for nuts.  Spreading grand colourful wings, butterflies kiss the blushing flowers,  Messages from bees, buzzing a delightful tune,  Large leaves of Willow create a comforting shade underneath,  Leaves rustle with murmuring wind reminding secret footsteps.  Lush green abundant grass, softest to tread, I offer you a refuge - of solitude, of reflections,  Of retrospection.  Ferns, encircling radiant Rose bushes,  Create a tender haven of love, Dainty shrubs besides the path lead to a fairy land,  Forming an oasis beyond imagination.  A dreamland, a perfect recluse for poetic bliss,  Wish you and I were here together eternally!

I love the way you've crafted this verse. You take me on waves of soothing colourful images of your garden then sprinkle your memories in showers. This would be placed on a high pedestal. Congratulations on your win Mala :) Much love!

Hi Mala! Like SO says, this is amazing. I want to spend time in your garden where "butterflies kiss the blushing flowers!" Just lovely! Congratulations on your winning placement. I, too, forgot to date my poem. Sigh. Hope you are well.

This is an amazing poem, one with so many fantastic lines and wonderful imagery.. It would have finished a lot higher, however, I did state in the contest instructions to include a date, or it would finish lower.. Please remember next time. Congratulations on your placement in the contest..
