Cyclamen Breeze

The
Cyclamen
Breeze
Gently
Wafted
Through
The
Porch
To
The
Sounds
Of
Cicadas.

img_0898_field_of_flowers_400As
Croaking
Frogs
Punctuated
The
Air
Through
Poplar
And
Olive
Trees
Shaking
In
The
Breeze.

Children
Playing
In
The
Fields,
As
We
Lay
On
Luxuriant
Green
Grass
Under
The
Shade.

Leaves
And
Flowers
Falling,
Floating
In
A
Swirl
Like
A
Delicate
Russian
Ballet.

Settling
On
Our
Faces;
Rose
And
Poplar
Leaves
Mingling.

A
Hint
Of
Vanilla
Filling
The
Air;
Injecting
The
Cyclamen
Breeze.

As
Doves
And
Eagles
Crossed
The
Earth,
Decorating
The
Day
Like
A
Pearl
Necklace.

This
Intoxicating
Cyclamen
Breeze
Numbing
The
Memory
Of
Home
Like
The
Lotus
Eaters
Of
Old.

Like
Some
Modern
Odysseus;
Lost
In
This
Cyclamen
Day;
Sailing
Home
On
The
Cyclamen
Breeze.

Thanks Nikos for this powerfully evocative poetry redolent of a Walt Whitman.
