the echo of blossoms in bloom.
Their pink florets - a fable’s genesis.
I see them all – all in the rear view.
The promise of summer and morning dew
little lies that become so serious.

Watch the sunrise setting in a lilac sky,
Its splendor squandered by the western view.
So quiet is the hour before the night,
The familiar changing - colored with a darker hue.
Wine and saccharin - comfort in the twilight.

This is lovely ;) Your imagery paints a perfect picture...I love the "rear view"... it makes a cool metaphor in so many ways... clever of you to use that...

Thanks for the feedback Fire! I know it takes a great deal of effort to extrapolate the meaning from a poem, especially when it was written by a novice. Your comments encourage me to learn more and strive to get better. Thanks again for taking the time!!

Mickey - Makes one look thru the "Rear View" mirror of one's own life. This has a visual impact which I enjoyed. Namyh
