Fields of sky

did I dream it —
that I had a nest
in which to curl
with folded wings

did I dream the
dappled shade of
the apple tree
and the warm
wind that stirred
my feathers

did I dream the
clouds flying
across an
invitation of blue

did I dream the
dance with you
in the fields of sky

is it
this dream

Beautiful imagery. To think that it feels so thought out but in fact, is first words out and no editing. You have a wonderful gift.

Ooooo, this one is really, really strong. Nice job.

The rose photo is beautiful, as well. Yours?

I could just make myself very small, curl up and rest in the middle of those blossoms. Wonderful dream sequence!

Endment, that is exactly one of the reasons I chose that photo! They make me feel that way, too.

Very lush and romantic, and interesting how the short stanza at the end hangs in the air...

Ah well, back to more prosaic things.

Luscious roses! so creamy and decadent, so feminine. I can almost smell their fragrance. what a beautiful photo...
the roses caught me.
Your poem's images kept me. You have a skilled way with words.
(I found your blog thanks to Endment. I'll be back. thanks!)

Those curling, lush roses! Just right for curling and curve and swoop. (Though call it irrational, I almost always find "which" a stumbling block in a poem... As though meant for something else, like an essay.)

Have you ever seen woodcocks in their tumbling mating dance? That's what I thought about here.
