While Watching the Rain


oregon 2

Forest leaves fall

Into a nocturne lake

Reflecting the deep waters

Of a celestial sea

Merging to meet

The purpling vineyard horizon

That brightens basalt bark

And Oregon coastal sands

Kissed by the pearlescent waves

Of a winter ocean.


*I came up with this poem while knitting on a shawl on a rainy day listening to Moon by George Winston-the name of the colors of the yarn I am using are in the poem: Forest, Nocturne, Deep Waters, Vineyard, Basalt, Oregon Coast, and Pearlescent. Everything-yarn, words, music-joined together in one peaceful, harmonic moment. Proof that inspiration can come from anything.

    I can picture knitting (not my own self – total ignorance) to this music on a rainy day and making poetry. Poem and music are both lovely. Thanks, Jesi and Lizzi.

    Well now, that’s VERY impressive, my fellow Bard! To have woven (ha ha) the names of the yarn into your words…GORGEOUS! And I felt as though I could see the coastline… *happysighs*
