20 May: dVerse Poetics


I Escaped …

into greens.
into shaded limbs of
silent sage and
noisy limes.

beech buttressed the sky,
and I was lost, stitched
into queen anne’s lace
and elderberry creams.

scent played me,
teased as
scotch pine warmed
the air.

I escaped myself,
if just for that moment.

  1. I am looking into an expanse of green as I read this, and you described with unerring precision the beauty of my May spring day. Gorgeous!

    1. I’m glad you enjoyed it.


  2. Bliss. One wants to make the moment last much much longer.


  3. And the photo is just right. That road could lead almost anywhere in the temperate world. But the adventures would be good.


    1. I love that road. It leads to a very deep lake. It’s a nightmare if you meet a car coming the opposite direction though. The road’s width is about 3/4 of a lane.

    Ah, the scent of green! It transport me, as do the delicate nodding heads of queen ann’s lace. Thank you.

  7. Ah, it is beautiful to escape through this portal of nature — I love the idea of noisy limes and being played by the heady scent. A lovely write! 🙂


    1. Thank you, and thanks for the prompt.


  8. Lovely piece, reminds me of the ‘wood’ of my childhood – a wild, wet slog but green, deep entrancing green.

    1. You didn’t happen to grow up in Sussex, did you?


      1. Nah, I’m an Essex boy – (so they cut down most of the woods for housing developments 😢)


        1. Pity no one wants to live in treehouses.
