The Ides Of March

Crossing thresholds of blooms and dewdrops of glorious spring, Toward autumn proudly walks season-bride with golden ring; Her costumes, robes of ballet dancers, as per scenes, changes, Facets of nature alter her charm to cosmic ranges...! Scotching sun transforms mossy leaves, to golden-churns, Clement breeze, once exited the stage, into storm-gust, returns; Painful to bid goodbye to beloved trees, leaves linger, Yet, get shaken off by now-twig-turning, dry-tree-finger...! Constellation composes puzzled riddled strange stories, Church-bells jingle mingling mysteries and histories; Et-tu-Brute - one could hear Julius Caesar cry loud, Senators encircle him, as though, for their goals, they're proud...! Traces of moon gets gut-split; glowworm-stars glitter around, Clouds, Indian widows in wild white, move, no safe paths found; Master Craftsman pursues and persists painting scenes serene, Brushes, disobliging, spill paints-mixes gaudy and sheen...! Flocks of tribal nomads grazing on moss-grassland valleys, Resemble ides-sheep of Jupiter; relishing rallies; Peacock butterflies float, like goddess Anna in rose-hill, In marriages of myths and truths, moods merrily chill and thrill...! Harmonious chorus of sky and seas brings pertinence, Parameters of perfection pave paths of permanence, Paradoxes of joys, angst... it possesses plethora, Ides-of-March! Not time! Not season! It's eternal era...! 28 March 2022 This or That, Vol 11 Poetry Contest Sponsored by: Edward Ibeh
