Sleeping Beauty

baby iris

 

Long has she lain,

poisoned by an apple

that should never have reached Eden.

The kiss, when it comes,

stirs,

wispy, a dream that eludes

upon rising;

it revives the tender recollection

that she waits,

not for an awakening,

but for a

Resurrection.

      Indeed! The first of many to come, I hope. Spring has been incredibly reluctant – low temps and cold north winds are keeping things from greening up. But things can only go green from here!! šŸ™‚

    Love the fairy tale take on this. šŸ™‚

    The hope of Resurrection can sometimes be like a forgotten dream. Good to be reminded of it again. Enjoy your Spring!

    … making the wait worthwhile.

    Hi, Melody. I would love to be able to include some of your poetry in my anthology titled Heart Whispers. Would you please email me at russtowne@yahoo.com to let me know whether you’d like to learn more about this project?
    Thank you!
    Russ

      Sorry Russ – I’ve been run off my feet with work and extra-curricular stuff lately. this weekend I should be able to gather up some samples and send them to you. I would very much like to be included, I just haven’t had a moment’s time to do anything about it! The play I’m directing will have its final performance tomorrow night – I should be freer after that, I hope!
