Indiangrass



Rambling Indiangrass long, skirt folds hide shy pale knees, untied hair flies flirty breeze - asters in basket throng with purity of wild white in wicker natural, petals pressing tactual absorbed in beauty quite spectacular. With my hand I brush the sways of gold, towheaded seedpods add bold plumed flourish to the land. Feathered heads rising to peek ‘bove teal blades turned yellow graceful in ripened mellow, silky Autumn mystique. Susan Ashley September 23, 2018 _________________________ ~ Eighth Place ~ Contest: Enclosed Rhyme - September, 2018 Sponsor: Dear Heart *Rambling: to walk aimlessly or idly over or through. To wander around in a leisurely manner.*

Hi Susan, firstly, belated congratulations on your win in the contest. Such a beautiful write on my favourite season, Autumn. This poetic gem flowed so easily and the wonderful imagery takes me into the heart of the piece. As I read I am there. I love to read nature poems but I am not very good at writing them. I leave nature's delights to more creative poets. I love the content of this imaginative write. Another fave from your pen Susan. Have a wonderful Wednesday. Hugs....Mike. XX

You have given due importance and life to Indiangrass with its yellow stamens and silky white hairs, Susan. This is beautiful poetry in which the rhyme scheme is conspicuous; good use of enjambment, too. ~ warm regards and hugs, my friend. // paul
