Charmed Day


Charmed Day

soaking up a charmed day
not chopped by the office

but marked by
the spring of rabbits

home-baked almond cookies
and sips of plum wine

grassy steps to a bubbling stream
my dress – the color of lilacs

steaming, belly warming broth
and brie toast

under the first stars of the evening
beside the sparks of a fireplace

falling deep into dreams
of a charmed day

Inspired by Red Wolf Poems’ Wordle #22.Β  The words are in the photo above and I used all twenty-four words in some form.

    That is a charming day indeed, Sabra. I like how you used the words given. You are so good at conjuring poems out of those seemingly disconnected words. πŸ™‚


  7. This IS a charmed day. Wow. I want to order one exactly like it at my house, tomorrow! (I dont think the menu will measure up, somehow, to yours!)

    You brought to mind the Thai plum sauce that comes with their veggie egg rolls. Yum. I have yet to have plum vine, but Lemonchello (not that I’ve made it myself) this recipe looks good:

    We were actually gifted this black tea from Japan. I guess if you let any tea steep long enough it could look like a broth. πŸ™‚

    Thanks for stopping by ~Jules


  12. Sabra Bowers says:

    Plum wine is a dessert wine. Yum! This recipe also looks yum, and would knock my socks off, I’m sure. Enjoy your tea, steeped long or not. Enjoyed you visit, Jules. πŸ™‚

    It’s dreamy and beautiful, just like those perfect days that come along too rarely.


  23. Kathy says:

    Hmmmmm . . . I’m laying on the grass and looking up into the sky as the clouds form the story of your words. There go the rabbits springing over the bubbling stream. Thank you for this lovely vision Sabra!
