Have Hope

Irises- Vincent Van Gogh

Fruity scent of purple iris dabs cool
morning air with heady perfume
as sword shaped jade leaves dance
with random grace to a melody
of lilting music whistling
through budding trees.

Sweetest song sung for eons of years
Have hope, for spring is here!

  1. I love your quadrille, Linda, especially the ‘fruity scent of purple iris’ and the way it ‘dabs cool morning air with heady perfume’ – and I’m especially fond of poems that end with rhyming couplets!

  2. This is incredibly gorgeous, Linda! 😀 I so love the image; “as sword shaped jade leaves dance with random grace to a melody of lilting music,”.. sigh .. Spring is almost here as well! 💝💝

  3. I love the idea of spring’s arrival, albeit a way off yet, but this phrase “dance with random grace” a perfect description of the season.

  4. Around here old man Winter has only taken a few shaky steps so far. We’re bracing for the first lowland snow storm. Your poem circumnavigates what’s outside my window; thanks.
