This Morning's Stroll

fragrant Rosemary
greets me as I step outside
the air calm and cool

tight coral rose buds
promise to open anon
dew on velvet sheath

Sweet Williams compete 
with Santa Barbara daisies
to climb rock border

Bodega Blues 
hold their own against Royal
Iris, both stand tall

loaded with sweet fruit
good year for my lemon tree
one picked for later

golden poppies face
the warming spring sun with joy
brilliance on display 

high grasses still wet
kissed by coastal morning mist
soak my sandalled feet

I approach the woods
my redwood sanctuary
brings me clarity

April 30 Prompt: Multiple Choice(s)—create a poem that is somehow like a multiple choice test,
OR turn this into another “free day” for our last day of April and write any poem of your choice,
OR write multiple, short, linked poems…like the sidewalk poems!
