Lilac Thoughts


so many thoughts
plentiful as lilac petals,
trumpeting ideas

sweet-smelling, unfinished,
blurry and chaotic

Notes: I haven’t had a good night’s sleep in weeks, and my thoughts reflect it. The last of my lilacs have opened, and the perfume is still coming in the window.

Happy Poetry Friday and thanks to Michelle Kogan for hosting. I had hacker trouble, and now I can’t leave comments on BlogSpot or hook into round ups, but I am still writing in my end of the world.

  1. Lilacs take me back to the home of my childhood. A hedge of them bloomed outside the dining room and kitchen. That glorious perfume takes me back to those days. We would pick bouquets and take them to our grandmothers for mother’s day.
    Thank you so much for triggering that memory with your poem.
