Sunlight cracks dismal clouds and humble deciduous
trees become a tropical rainforest
in my backyard, crystalline
sparkles falling from leaf to leaf
Sirens subside in a cascading decrescendo
as mist rises from makeshift burbling brooks
reflecting diamond rainbows
into our kitchen,
twinkling above our spontaneous dish-drying disco.
Learned a new word (serein). And the descriptions are quite strong. Lovely work!
I’m glad I could introduce you to it, it’s such a soothing word. Thank you so much!
dish drying disco…
after dinner dance
Absolutely! My mom, sister, and I love to make up outrageous dances after dinner (don’t ask why, lol!) while my dad judges😂
Love the line “sparkles falling from leaf to leaf/ like gemstones”
Thank you! I really liked that one.
Musical! Visual! Fantastic.
Thank you so much!
Thank you for your enthusiasm and for reading my work! 🙂
your line endings, the enjambments. the sheer energy driving through to the end. wonderful work.
Thank you again, Manny! Your kind words make my evening!
