You find me
under the spell of spring
blooming jacarandas excite the sunbird
In a trance;
a pose in stilettos ready for a dance
you find me
of sky stays blue and grapes mellow
all year round
of summer evenings; air heavy with jasmine
you find me
Process Note: October is my birth month, which means I celebrate it in both autumn and spring depending on where the day finds me. Though autumn crunchy and cozy with candle lights, and sizzling romance in the North, I chose to relive memories of a romance in spring.
If you are a lover of Autumn (or even if, like me you have a love-hate relationship with autumn) please visit Prompt Nights, “Crunching, Crinkling Autumn swirling in the Breeze” images and words by poets praising the season, will tantalise and pleasure all your senses.
A side note: In celebration of my birthday, I’m treating myself to a number of books by authors I’ve been meaning to read for some time: a collection of South African short stories, a fantasy novel, and of course, always poetry. And now the question is, what other ways do you use to support or help promote a friend/fellow writer’s book, besides a review? I ask this because we tend to be biased when reviewing a book by a writer we know.
