Compact, succinct, specific…not a wasted word…every word pregnant with visual, audial and mental meaning.
Karen, your poetry is “primly elegant”. Thank you!
This is one of my favorite entries in Heart Stirrings. I loved it from the minute I first read it. Karen, you beautifully captured the image and I was so struck by your last line,
” . . . not to vivacious hope
(the grace of evergreens)
but to a feisty faith in future blossoming”
Oh! I pray to have that feisty faith in future blossoming for all the days of my life!
Beautiful and thank you for sharing.
