Crepe-myrtle flowers

Eventide’s misty winds gently oscillate Colorful clusters of crepe-myrtle flowers Crowning atop rows of elegant tree-trunks Blooms lavender, pink, red, and purple Hanging in air from tips of twigs slender Bowing to earth, donning green foliage Arrayed in symmetrical flower-bouquets. On a summer stroll, my hand you hold, Gazing rhythms tilting back and forth Swaying gracefully symphony of colors As synchronized whispers merrily rustle Echoing intentions of doting twilight sun Beholden to season's gift of blossoms. Gales now swirl, petite petals disperse, Whirling confetti, drifting dances aerial, Sprinkling fine motifs of tinted splendor Twisting, turning, in eve’s amber passion Flying all over, as we gaze, wooing love, Where violet-sky above artfully evokes Opaline glimpses of dreams ephemeral Inscribed in spectrum on crimson horizon. March 13, 2021 Poem of the day on March 15, 2021 Placed 1st: Flower or flowers in imagism form poetry contest Sponsor: Constance La France Placed 1st: All yours (March 17) by Brian Strand
