soft pillows, intricate
white lace, scent of you, wintry spice
scent in wild meadows, our
shadows alongside, muddy road-
Our local floral farmer's market featured pretty lavender bouquets today. My husband bought one for me, hand tied in a pink bow. The look and scent of lavender immediately inspired me to be creative. I started to compose poems, dreaming of lavender, and taking photographs of the little bouquet. I then remembered that I had taken photos of lavender blooms on a country road, which I'm also sharing here. How nice for couples to go for romantic walks in nature. Lavender and love, what could be better!

The "Sunday Mini-Challenge" at Imaginary Garden With Real Toads is to write a poem in the cinquain form, which is a five-line poem in a strict 2-4-6-8-2 syllable count. There are other variations of this form, but I opted for this one. I wrote two romantic poems, both on a lavender theme, but with different takes and titles. I really enjoyed learning about and trying out this poetry form for the first time. I'm also sharing my post with the next edition of "Nature Notes" at Rambling Woods. Enjoy my poems and photos!
