Three graces in the morning fields of gold

Step over to Catvibe Creative and check out the image prompt and contest Cat has started over there. You have until this Saturday to craft an entry. Oh, and while you are at it, take a peek in her art store. Her stuff is really pretty fabulous!

Here is the poem I wrote for Cat's image prompt.

The moon’s slow grace runs golden through
the apple fields as though it knows
those amber honey words she’d lapped
in slow and patient strokes from her
sweet lover’s tongue before they slipped
away so fleetingly, and now
each night she haunts the fields in search
of something lost that precious night
of belfire, bower, hair entwined
with ribbons bright, spring blossoms strewn--
her youth, perhaps, or maiden’s charm
spilled carelessly on meadow loam—
yet morning finds her, endlessly
still older, worn, creased paper-thin
feet moss-dew bathed, brow blessed by night,
kissed by the newborn sun
