"Golden Surrender"

Golden Surrender

Golden Wheat
Swooning from the heat
As do I
To this farmer, my husband
In this sea of gold

by Margaret Bednar, Art Happens 365, May 22, 2011

This is for One Stop Poetry's "One Shoot Sunday".   The photographer interviewed and highlighted today is "Walter Parada".   I find his portraits stunning and beautiful ...  I mean the above is gorgeous!  We had a number of photos to choose from... but I seemed not to be able to pass up this one!  :)

I used a poetry form called "shadorma".  No rhyme scheme and the syllabic structure is 3/5/3/3/7/5.  I imagine many woman would surrender city life and all it's "benefits" for such as is pictured above!

Lovely little poem. Sweet and sensuous at the same time. And thanks for introducing me to 'shadorma' -- I love this form.
