NOMINATIONS Poems written in Jan for Feb's Contest 2018

#1 Post by FrankDire » 24 Jan 2018, 20:12

I nominate Bob's Goldback Fern for this month's competition.
I am keeping 2 more open till end of month.

Goldback Fern


Under bay laurels we looked up
at insects flitting

through a lemony light.
In the distance sunlit clouds

brushed the grassy hills blond,
the way the goldback fern's underside

leaves behind a yellow dusting.
You pressed one against my jeans,

a golden handprint on my right thigh.
We lingered, hiking slowly,

the moist fingers of ferns
stroking our wrists,

our arms. With narrow trails
I found easy excuses to brush

against you, carrying your scent
home with me.

*****
Best wishes with this Bob
