V~ Viola



Little ladies dance--
Purple petals face warm light
sunshine on the ground.

    1. Oh with a quick twist of a word or two they sure could be :-) Our lilacs are just in the budding stage, it will probably be another month before they let me see them.

  4. I immediately thought of viola's when I read this. One of my favorite little filler flowers. So delicate looking and so lady-like! ♥

    1. They do remind me of faces. My grandma used to take the hollyhocks and make little ladies out of them with big full skirts. (I know it's a different topic, but it reminded me of them.)

  7. Very well written.
    Purple petals fade slowly,
    while giving pleasure.

  9. This one conjured a picture of a solo musician playing the viola and purple petals begin to drift from the tree above...
