Spring Lilacs


Eyewitness of nature’s loom
When lilacs with long
Locks of blooms
Illumine my kitchen counter
Before the vase
Gathers them…
Scenting, banqueting
Crafting and dining
A living room

Their bright aroma
Shrieks out ascent of May
Accented by green leaves
Where birds nest - engulfed in perfume;
Sun, and color-woven
In lilacs’ purple costume
Springing through
The threaded tapestry
Of natures loom

    Personally I associate purple with lavender - this is my favourite one... For some reason I find the word 'lilac' to be an annoying onomatopoeia, but your poem is very beautiful. I love the visuals, I love its scent...
    Thank you for sharing... (Report) Reply
