Poetry Friday: Spring's Laden Lilac

Spring's Laden Lilac
Scent spilling, bending;
intoxicating, laden, 
curved fingers of hope.
Lorie Ann Grover, 2014

Lovely poem and photo -- a nice fragrance to take into the weekend. :)

How beautiful, and it evokes memories for me of that scent, which is indeed intoxicating. I love the word "laden" here and how you show that lilacs are heavy with both flowers and scent.

Lilacs and spring in three lines. Lovely!

Intoxicating! Love thinking of the fronds as fingers! A fresh image

Mary Lee said...

I can just about smell them through my computer screen!

So pretty, both the poem and the flower!
