S for ABC Wednesday

ABC WEDNESDAY ROUND 5: S is for.....





Upside or Down

a small slip of ivy
the heart of ess
curls round my thumb
fashions a smile
a sense of spring
symbolic and green

the original sin
shaped by an asp
morphs to blood stains
on spreadsheets and
scripts the bottom line
of snakes in the grass

sweet and sensual
serendipitous
curves to a spiral
the siren call
of the seasonal ess
a small slip of ivy


This edited re-post is a favorite of mine and I hope you'll enjoy it as well.
The digital image is a copper wire twisted to an S and photographed on top of a CD reflecting a window's light. Resized in Irfranview, framed in MS Digital Image Suite.

Yes, I did enjoy it! Love the playing with words, the alliteration, and onomatopeia in the poem. Interesting how an S can symbolize the innocence of spring and the sin of the snake.

I'm glad I had time to open my reader this morning and catch up with your recent artwork and poetry! It's hard to choose a favorite to comment on, so I settled on the most recent ... just because but they're ALL marvelous and make ME want to experiment too. I wanted to wish you and yours a Happy Thanksgiving and invite you to drop by Happily Retired Gal where I'm I'm celebrating my 1st Blogoversary. How time flies ;-)
Hugs and blessings,
