Sol To Soul




G O L D E N flower of the solar throne your far-away fire reigns immortal - blossom wild beauty of chrysanthemum skies hold me in the unfolding glory of your well-wishing petals as Indian summer’s rays ravish and relax the chill tender is the topaz passion in the sunset of your satisfied season and seductive is the ripened ember in the harvest of your lingering light S O L to soul - suffuse my surrender with pulsar persuasion your ambient nectar embolden me the honey of your citrine haze - a fortune my ruby honeycomb to save and savor.. anemone ambrosia for my essence to sip when amber’s blush of November’s kindled kiss turns ashen on Winter’s cold grey lips Susan Ashley November 9, 2018

wet leaves of summer, footprints in its soft ground, cast away green leaves of yesterday so all your colors may be found, fill my eyes with red and gold so I may find peace in a time so old...my first thought after reading my friend, truly your soul walks in nature...

Indeed a golden poem..adorned in beauty and style of precious words. So many excellent lines..but let me say these impressed me tremendously: tender is the topaz passion..in the sunset of your satisfied season..and seductive is the ripened ember..in the harvest of your lingering light. You always write such delicate and beautiful poems, Susan. Kudos my friend.
