the lavender hour


lavender is the colour …
of the hour ... of peace ...

somewhere …
in all the moments
of day ... or night ...
or dusk ... or dawn ...

there is a flowered confluence …
hidden amongst the heavy fronds of living …
a portal to a space ...

far ... far away ...
from the revving fatigue ...

time rests ... there ... in that place
above the pale
intents and purposes ...
the sorrow and the pain

... and floats … 
as simple as a leaf
upon a lavender sea

... and drifts ... and drifts ...
eyes closed …
it whispers from the deep
nebulous of being

let it be ...

note: this is a poem I wrote using a method laid out by Elizabeth (in an interview she had with Sherry) in the Monday, May 27 Blog of the Week Feature, this passed week, entitled: How to Write a Poem When You're Blocked. Check it out, if you haven't already. I found it very helpful.

  3. Oh yes, let it be. That peace that passes both time and understanding, let it be. Really, really like this Wendy.

  4. There is a beautiful lavender farm, not a 10 minute drive away. The gift shop is nice, but really the best part is picking a bench in a shady part of the property and just breathing in the peace while I relax.
