By the Birch Trees by Joan Riordan, my #RAOKblitz Honoree

By the birch trees

           The tulips are a
   bouncy boy band with hair dyed
   a bright, bright yellow.

Past the pond

            Cherry trees throw
            pink petal confetti-
            Flower girls in a wedding.

Along the wall

            Lilacs burble bubbles
            of grape soda.
            A flimsy foam fills the field.


  1. Like the "bouncy boy band"!!!!

  2. What lively images! Whenever I see lilacs now I'll think of grape soda, haha!


You know you have something to say...
