The Respite

Written by © Rosemarie Miranda
Just like the clouds hovering on mountaintops,
Just like the green carpet of valleys
Just like the shy flowers coyly blushing
in the corners
Just like the vast expanse in the horizon
Just like the cool breeze's caress on a sunny day
Words need to take a backseat in the humdrum
of life's navigation
when a picture captures the essence
Of a well-deserved respite from it all
No need for hyperboles and ironies
or similes and metaphors with its tinge
of alliterations and onomatopoeia.
What is there to see is the naked truth
of a sugary smile before the camera's eye
forever trapped in the tapestry of a respite. Photo below of the poetess and beautiful landscape in the distance.
