Opening Night
Round Two
Color explodes
Hope shimmers
Illuminating the
Darkening days

      Thanks, Mom. With luck, maybe the flowers will last until Thanksgiving. Loved the pics you sent of your trumpet flower. It seems to have survived and thrived. πŸ™‚

      Thanks Ursula. The new flower caused the Muses to sing and viola!–another poem. πŸ™‚

      Thanks, Lana. Bright new life in a dying season feels like a second chance. Being off my regular schedule has allowed me to learn and play around with some new forms, including this one. Other favorites are the cascade, triolet, and kyrielle. πŸ™‚

        Wow….and I don’t even know what those are, lol. I’ll be waiting for you to show us. I agree about autumn flowers, it’s like a last hurrah before frost. I have beautiful roses and Lantana blooming right now.

      Thanks, Quirky! I’ll get to enjoy it all over again in a few days when bud #2 opens.
