Winter Bouquet Winter Bouquet Poem in Progress In late summer, in the fullness of plenty, I filled my arms with your brilliant yellow and warm green, followed by bees besotted with your gentle scent, burying my face into your softness, thinking of beds made of your flowers; today in the cold, punishing wind, the swirling snow, all decorations weathered away, I could see your naked strength holding your essence outright, catching snowflakes, with faith in spring. poem © Bernadette E. Kazmarski This may be my last entry in my February 2020 Personal Creative Challenge, but I think I’m ready to fly now. I’ll finish this later on my writing blog, www.PathsIHaveWalked.com I began this year with a pledge to myself and my art: To be certain I won’t let ideas pass me by I’m setting myself up for a personal painting challenge in February, similar to the painting challenges I’ve participated in in past years. I aspire (but don’t expect) to create a painting or sketch every day in the month, to be posted on my blog each day. This is my post from Day 27.
