If you are one of my regular, treasured visitors you will know that I don’t often re-blog, but this is my second today. This is Anne Kealy’s Poem Frost Faeries and I love it. In fact I’ve loved all the poems on her blog so far and if I wasn’t such a lazy poet her style and talent is what I would aspire to. Read and enjoy Frost Faeries, maybe take a peep around her work, you won’t be disappointed, LG.
Look where Mr Salopek is now! If you haven’t heard about this incredible journey have a look back over his pages. The Glorious Boneyard: A Report From Our Starting Line – Out Of Eden Walk.
Timid fragile flower with strength
to bear and thrive through frost
you push your way through compacted soil
to spread a sunshine blanket
under woodland canopy
where no sun shines
you remain pure along shoulders
of polluted carriageway
and in a cemetery of tombstones
you stand alert and alive
your palest glow a greeting
that follows with fragrance elusive
as your unfolding gown dallies
its subtle caress in green velvet folds
