small blankets

as if they could
store the sun
small blankets
on a chair
add color to
the scene
as they await
to warm
another time

Trumpet Vines


Yesterday I posted a short poem that described a small country cemetery, with trumpet vines growing taller than the gravestones.  For me, this pictures the Easter story.

The photos of trumpet vines in this post are by “Paul Sherman of wpclipart dedicated to the Public Domain.”   He edits and manages this site, which is an education resource.
