Golden yellow waves

Flowing, vibrating, shining,

Citrine sapphires, revealing

The secret of the breeze.

A song of freedom

A lashing, liberty, energy,

Fields, made of yellow jade suns

Changing, turning, resonating,

Shards of light.

Touching my eyes, filling my soul,

Through golden oceans,

A sparkling yellow sea,

A saffron painted corner,

A lemon endless cover,

Energy of swaying citrine,

Renewing, cleansing, shifting,

A soothing deep within,

In a forgotten corner,

Under a eternal healing sun,

Flowered field

Golden yellow waves.

    So refreshing, Alan… much needed and appreciated. I especially like–

    Through golden oceans,
    A sparkling yellow sea,
    A saffron painted corner,
    A lemon endless cover,
    Energy of swaying citrine

    “Citrine sapphires, revealing the secret of the breeze.” Just lovely. There is so much in a breeze, I think – especially for poets.

    I now see dandelion in a different angle………….

    The movement of a field of dandelions or grass or daisies is surely something to see … it reminds me of flocks of birds the shift their flight on the breezes or water ripples on a pond surface … the movement is always so hypnotic … your exploration of the dandelions colors and movement is just beautiful!

  13. “Citrine sapphires” — lovely imagery! The humble dandelion would be proud!
