Wander through a field of wildflowers
whose purples, reds, and golds seem more alive
than all prize roses and bridal bouquets.
A meadow bursting with flowers and bees
freshens the body as well as the mind.
Imagine daisies designing a chain
or Baby Blue Eyes with joyful faces.
Carmine clusters of long-stemmed Drummond phlox,
colored deeper than a young woman’s blush.
Bumble bees hum as they wend through beauty.
Songs sung by meadowlarks thrill lady bugs.
Deer stand silently watching butterflies.

Let me lie in a meadow soaking up
color and sound that soothe me to the core.

I am a freelance poet, born and bred in Brooklyn, New York. I live with my husband, John, and two charming rescue dogs–Marion Miller and Murphy. We spent eight lovely years in Portland, OR, but are now back in New York. My goal is to create and share poetry with others who write, or simply enjoy reading poetry. I hope to touch a nerve in you, and feel your sparks as well.

    BRAVO! You did a beautiful job with the Lannet…you’re inspiring me to maybe give it a whirl 🙂


  2. The beauty of your words even outshine the pictured flowers you offered, Sara. On form and expressive. More comment in the garden!


  3. Your sonnet to the flowers is lovely and I adore those Baby Blue Eyes!
