Mountain princess

Princess of the sky

Sky filled with light

Light that doesn’t lie

~

Walking to the early dawn

Edge of love’s eternity

Eternity to which she’s drawn

Drawn to God’s beauty

~

She is the mountain princess

Princess of beauty and light

Light upon light for always

Always seeking what’s right

“And now, our (optional, as always) daily prompt! April is a time for planting things (at least where I am, in Washington DC – you may still be waiting for spring, or well into some other season!) At any rate, I’ve recently been paging through seed catalogs, many of which feature “heirloom” seeds with fabulous names. Consider the “Old Ivory Egg” tomato, the “Ozark Razorback” or “Fast Lady” cow-pea, “Neal’s Paymaster” dent corn, or the “Tongues of Fire” bush bean. Today, I challenge you to spend some time looking at the names of heirloom plants, and write a poem that takes its inspiration from, or incorporates the name of, one or more of these garden rarities. To help you out, here are links to theSouthern Exposure Seed Exchange and the Baker Creek Seed Company. Also, here’s a hint – tomatoes seem to be prime territory for elaborate names. And who knows, maybe you’ll even find something to plant in your garden! Happy writing!” Hosts of NaPoWriMo~2016

I chose the Mountain Princess tomatoe!

I have been writing all my life but for the most part, it has been a secret. My parents did not believe writing was a good way to earn money so I hid my poems. Then one day, I wanted to comment on an essay that a friend had written and found myself with a blog. That quiet whisper inside said, "You can write your poetry and no one will ever know.". I knew nothing of followers and the like at that time. So, here I am trying to learn my craft and enjoying every moment of it. My personal details are, I'm 57, married for 39 years, have one grown son who is God's gift to us and last but not least at all, I'm a Baha'i which basically means that I love all humanity.

  1. What a lovely tribute to the wonderful tomato. Can’t wait for some vine ripened ones this summer. Beautiful poem. Love this: “Edge of love’s eternity
    Eternity to which she’s drawn
    Drawn to God’s beauty”
