Free verse Poetry: Parkside Romance, Summer

Haze. Many tall stems bent,
one over the other.
A weave of lavender hanging bells.
Pink gamma light. Teardrops of dew
and the warmth for tender seeds.
A man and woman walk on concrete:
he sees a glitter in her eyes,
for how else can she sense,
even before he knew, that he’d,
Get down on his knees. A jogger
sputters by with squawking furry beast
on a long red leash.
I want to ask you something, he says.
Yes, she replies. Two yellow cabs blow horns;
Passerby stares.
On bended knee; Will you marry me!
A thrill of happiness surges in
beating hearts.
A sky opens—radiance shines.
Feathers flutter in blue.
How sentimental it fills to see romance,
brighter than a red rose.
A blast of gushing air through trees.
A baby cries.
Birds sing.

What is a Free Verse Poetry? Typically patterned by speech rather than meter, this form of poetry is very open to the author’s discretion and usually does not rhyme. Visual and sound effects are often employed.  It can have as many lines as the writer wishes.
