Fields of sunshine

Inspired by a photo I took the other day, and by the rhythm of fast dog-walking ( and fast-dog walking) this one is almost on prompt for NaPoWriMo. The form is one I like, all about threes, but I’m not sure what to call it besides Three Squared.

field of sunshine

Sunshine fills the field with golden light,

Aprilโ€™s tender hues, a palette bright,

Memories, the dark of winterโ€™s night.


All about, green buds burst, leaves uncurl,

Yellow banners, morning-blown unfurl,

Bathed, the grass in mist and tints of pearl.


On my tongue, the tang flows in the breeze,

Wild and windy taste of summer seas,

Childhood dreams shine in the salty lees.

I used to do lots of things I didn't much enjoy. Now I am officially a writer. It's what I always wanted to be.

  1. This is simply lovely. And you have no idea what a kick I got out of your “fast dog-walking” and “fast-dog walking.” I’m a stickler for the proper use of hyphens to convey meaning and you have used them to perfection. ๐Ÿ™‚
