Saturday Mix — Lorraine 29.04.17


The time we went to Bali and saw this
Sun shining, big pond of water lilies
Mountains around us, this is such a bliss
Butterflies and bees hovering with ease
Not too hot, enjoying afternoon’s breeze
Walking along the pond, holding my hands
Looking at each other’s eyes with a tease
And we said this is such a fairyland
Like a prince charming, you gave me a kiss
Bali with water lilies, you are missed*

  1. The pictures are very nice and the words are lovely. The first poem was refreshing. The weather where I am is crazy–hot one day and snowing the next. I liked the calm feeling of the first poem.
    I love tortoises, so I really enjoyed the second poem.

  2. Two nice poems — Bali and pet tortoises. Exotic topics for folks like me living in North America. I learn a new poetic form from you every time you participate!
    Thanks for participating! And your NaPoWriMo is coming to a close. Well done to have 27/27! Good luck with the last few days.
