Velvet Verbosity: Clover

I catch a glimpse driving by
That red clover growing wild
Covering the field in vivid red
A rolling blanket on top it’s bed

I turn around and park my car
And admire the stretch of clover afar
It rolls like the ocean, waves like the sea
A flag in the breeze, saluting me

I’m standing in, this field of clover
My senses heighten, tell me it’s over
And off my shoulders comes the weight
No longer am I concerned, with destiny or fate

“What will be will be!” I shout in the air
Mama always said “Life isn’t fair”.

  1. What a gorgeous picture, and great work on the poem. I especially love the lines: “It rolls like the ocean, waves like the sea; a flag in the breeze saluting me.” The imagery and figurative language are just perfect there.
