Affluence of purification

please settle, please.
Lush magnificence
awaits Duenna.

Glissade: his specialty.

  1. Like some of your other commenters, Audrey, I had to look up definitions for two of your words (sorry, but we’re not all gifted with huge vocabs!!) ‘Tis lovely, both the plant and the to-the-point verse!


  2. I must admit that I had to Google the definition of two words in here: duenna and glissade. So thank you for expanding my vocabulary ๐Ÿ™‚ This poem makes me think of two — opposing — wishes. On one side, a wish to settle. On the other, the wish to glide. And a tension between the two.


    • Duenna, she has so many beautiful layers, Gus. Governess of verdant, I believe. Glissade…slide over her and purify the soul. Settle upon her, yes, her wish, his wish/his specialty to slide, glide, run smoothly across her.
      ..thank you for trying to understand and doing a fine job of meeting me where my vision lays. Nothing better than a bit of spring rain to tend to our soul or plants as I may be… ๐Ÿ™‚ (Did I really just write that?! Ugh. Sometimes I have to laugh at myself. I am multifaceted, for sure.)

    • I like the spring rain comment — I’m glad you really wrote that. And maybe it can be used in another of your poems? Good to be multifaceted and be able to laugh at yourself ๐Ÿ™‚
