PROMPT #329 – HEAD IN A CLOUD

Springtime approaches and at last we can get out and enjoy it (soon enough anyway). Today we offer this flower cloud of words. And no better topic to explore in this garden than tending our garden. Use whatever words that move you and write what we used to call “Beautiful Blooms”! Plant your verbal seeds and see what grows.

MARIE’S VERBAL BOUQUET:

Bloom confidently.
Even breeze-scattered seed is
rooted by God’s breath.

WALT’S PLANTING:

WAITING IN THE SHADE

It takes great patience
to wait in the shade after
making room for your blooms to blossom.
You’ve cleared the leaves
of autumns past, those that have lasted
through the winter. They scatter now
in the winds of this new spring. 
The thing is, you’ve shed your seeds
to water and nurture; to grow hearty
as much as they will grow in your heart
of dreams and illusions.  Their intrusion
into the world will be most welcome. 
To pick and pluck, to harvest as each
aromatic flowering rose or delicious vegetable 
comes to ripen. Still, you hearken,
always waiting in the shade 
for love to grow, a bountiful feast for all!
