Summers’ wildflowers

Initially a small comment on Latoya’s poem, “Woman”, together we came up with “Summers’ Wildflowers” as a duet. Happy escape for the season!

Rain in the green

Summers’ wildflowers

(by Latoya & Sean Bidd)

Reaching between the red cracked clay
Where the rains passed last wet season
And gave beauty meaning and reason
To be anything but dry because wildflowers were alive
And had eyes that saw everything
And nothing

Parched now waiting once more
For the dry, the drought to break
To come alive in the wet of snowflakes
The embrace of a season new
To hear the laughter on the old tin roof
In the long pause

To hear fresh again
The giggle of the trees
Birds playing hide and seek with the breeze
The waterโ€™s edge pressing at the front door
To bring on the wildflowers once more
Their dreamy scents
Sounds

Of colors out beyond eyes reach
Buried between the martyrs of fall
Preserving its innocents until the seasons call
Sit with me awhile
To take it all in

Waiting to be beckoned
To kiss the rain again
The aroma brings a shift in power
As the moon shines on

A summer of wildflowers

    • It just comes together some how, it’s like harmonies in music, voices or instruments, with their melodies, and rhythms they play. Thanks, Sky.

    • Being surrounded by similar places at times, helped a lot when writing this one, as it’s always real inside the mind… Thank you for following, and sharing your thoughts.

  2. THIS PIC IS SO PEACEFUL I LOVE THE SOUND OF THESE WORDS, AND THE WAY YOU ALLOW ME TO INCORPORATE MY WORDS WITH YOURS. I THINK ONE DAY SOON I WILL SEND YOU SOME LINES AND GIVE YOU THE LEAD.

    • It was a day of rain a few summers ago, the place is just a quarter mile walk from home. Your words spliced in well to find the fuller story within the poem. The art of writing within an open space.

      Sure, when ever you think is fine (:
