* Charleston’s Salt Flats (Couplets) .*

Rating: 2.9
Periwinkle dusk cradled in meringue-d moon -
Beams with tinged sun-drops each echoing its own

Crooning –love for day’s sweet end, far-flung skinny oaks
And ocher-ed waves of spindly marshes dance in the

Salty drink, architectural perspectives paint
The gentleness of each sentry’s uniform

Tenderly embracing reflection-ed wetness
Slowly emptying the tendril-ed ribbon-ed

Salty streams outward into the great Atlantic
Wilds, divided sepias outline the punctuat-

Ing dance with kisses of our entwined enchantment
Charleston salt flats welcoming lovers hungry souls

(Celebrating Thirty Years of Love,

I enjoyed the melody and metaphor and especially the unorthodox style very unique, , , ,

How cleverly you've structured this one. The couplets enhance the flow of the piece and the salty tang that seems somehow to sneak between your words. Stylish, lyrical penning. love, Allie ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥

This is just lovely, Debora, all ' tendrilled and ribboned' like the South. Raynette
