A-Z Challenge

For the A-Z challenge, we decided to post a new and original poem every day. Today Juliet shares a poem for the letter "O."



Opera

Listen to the secret song
Hidden among the clustered leaves
Peering through
A laughing expression
Mythical moment
Ovation
A storm of roses

  1. Good morning, My opera is the sound of much needed rain.

  2. The funny part is my husband is working on an opera right now. They open on Friday. Good timing!

    Thanks for stopping by!

  3. Sunshine here, no rain came as promised, so my opera is listening to the silence. I love coming here to read your poems.

  4. Your poem was a prose opera, much like a rose opening petal by petal. Thanks for visiting my blog today. :-)

  5. Since you are such a lovely poet, I would like to send you THE BEAR WITH 2 SHADOWS that will soon be released as an audio book. It is done in the lyrical style of a Lakota storyteller, telling of a mystical bear who challenges faes, Sidhe, Valkyries, and other fearsome wonders in the Celtic land of Eire and Avalon. I just need your email address. Or if you are cautious of giving your email address to a stranger, you may read the first chapters for free on its Amazon's book page:

  7. Another beauty! I spent the morning working in the yard, listening to the birds rehearsing their arias and preparing for the storm of roses.
