dVerse Poetics: This one is for you.

I am allowed 15 minutes a day on the puter….bah!!! so I have bribed the 16 year old boy, Xien, boy across the street to type for me. And I am keeping this short.  I love my birthstone – topaz – deep and golden and rare.  When he read Lillian’s prompt, I knew I had to respond.  I will sneak back later to read some.  15 minutes allows a haiku.  You all take care!  BTW, I am a triple Scorpio for those of you who follow astrology.  http://dversepoets.com/2017/09/26/this-ones-for-you/

golden leaves – clear blue skies
rare amber and common blue –
perfect autumn day

    I liked the pairing of amber and blue associated with the leaves and sky of autumn.

    I like that middle line, ms. double scorpio.

    (signed) ms. double gemini.

    Ah Toni…..taking the time and effort to do this…you are so so wonderful. BUT, you must rest your eyes!
    This is, as all of your writing, quite beautiful. So much in so few words. Take care, my friend. Rest.

    The yellow and blue… also in my favourite sonnet by Neruda

    A gem of a poem, and a fitting Scorpio tribute!

    Hope you are keeping well. Love the topaz, I too am a Scorpio, but now have to find out what a triple Scorpio is…..see you are always providing a challenge.
