Blinded by the Sun

by Maple Tree   Mar 9, 2016


Drenched -

Perfumed blankets waft
within a pleasurable cup
of Joe and nothing seemed
more pleasant than the
true reality of that moment.

Sun greeters find lazy irises
whispering of early spring
as frozen dandy's awaken
a spirited sleep.

I've been known to frolic
as trees struggle to find
rebirth, after a long winters
embrace....

However, old age has weighted
my pockets with stones and these
rooted bones no longer sway
within spring breezes;

But the sun awakens me
from another dance on the moon
from the night before,
I'll forever be a nature dancer
even if it takes me a little
longer to dance....

    Another really excellent poem in particular l
    like the description of old age weighing us down like stones in pockets and the rooted bones no longer swaying within spring breezes

    I am a nature freak and I love the beautiful description and remember the fun times. Unfortunately age will slow us down. Take care

    LOVE this and you so much! The dance, the spirit in this piece (not to mention how I shrieked at the mention of coffee and the use of "frolic" which I don't see much).

    Only thing, in the last stanza: "Ill" should be "I'll".

    ;)
