Cherries Tossed On A Sundae (Couplets) - Poem by Debora Short

Giant atmospheric nebulous crests gently roll
as if they were foamy white summer seashore gifts
Softly whipped toppings coating autumn’s fall fare
Quietly, washing down the delectable delights

The Cumberland escarpment adorned in red
Sumac, rising up from bottom branches, Hardwoods
Exhibit finest gifts in gallery showings
Contrasted with the near ninety degree ivory

Cliffs that lead upland to the Kentucky plateau
Those mountainous risings kiss both Virginia and
Old rocky top’s legendary evergreen-ed hills
In life giving droplets of drink, high-lighted with

Prismatic arches in every hue carrying dreams
And golden hopes westward through that so ancient Gap
As the sun sets it fringes those cloud edgings bright red-
Orange, not unlike cherries tossed on a sundae

    Debora, a delightful sundae indeed, with fabulous colours, scents, scenic wonders and promised delights. This is indeed an artistic smorgasbord! Rgds, Ivan (Report)Reply
