Come Walk with Me

Lilac aphrodisiac, scent my world.
Your goodness blossoms
blessed with sweet delicacy.
From palest to deepest shades,
side by side on Lilac Lane.
Each alone exudes the beautiful,
together you blend as one scene.
I walk slowly, senses awakened.
Serenity wafts, and in the moment,
all is good in my world.

    Oh, that moment when you walk past a lilac bush and catch that glorious scent! So well caught here.

      It is an amazing scent…and when there is an entire lane of these glorious bushes…well, it’s just magical!

    Oh, if we only could extend and link those lilac/honeysuckle moments; but thanks for providing us with both a reminder and some tangible poetic natural stimuli.

      Have you heard of those scratch ‘n sniff stickers? They were popular with kids for quite a while…don’t know if they still are. How I wish I could have put some lilac scratch ‘n sniff stickers on this post rather than just photographs! ๐Ÿ™‚

    So beautiful: both words and pictures! Thank you for sharing your world. I can easily understand how it is infused with serenity!

      I truly love lilacs. I learned a long time ago though, they are not picking flowers. If you put them in a vase, the moment you set them in, they begin to wilt like crazy and that becomes one sad image…almost as if they’re weeping that you took them away from their neighboring clusters!

        I always prefer to leave flowers growing!

    As a child we would go to the Lilac Festival in Rochester, NY. (proof in my father’s home movies, now digitized!)

      Are you familiar with scratch ‘n sniff stickers? They used to be very popular with kids…how I wish I had some lilac ones to affix to my post in addition to the photos! ๐Ÿ™‚

      Glad you enjoyed the stroll down Lilac Lane. And glad you fixed the comment section so others can enjoy your post and let you know that! Did you see my comment about today’s post on a previous post?

    Intoxicating! Mine bloomed better than ever this year but the scent is too strong to bring in the house. Thanks for taking my first linked poem off. You got the right one!

    Serenity wafts, and in the moment,
    all is good in my world.

    Love to know everything is nice and well for you, Lillian!

    I instantly relaxed while going through the lilac slideshow. Such magnificent flowers lilacs are. They have so many different colors and types of blossoms nowadays!


  12. pvcann June 11, 2021 / 5:08 am

    I can see and smell the lilac.

    “Serenity wafts, and in the moment,

    Oh Lillian, such calm and relaxation woven in your words here, but especially these closing lines. Lillian and Lilac, simply lovely,

    Several weeks ago, after clipping armful after armful of lilac branches, I learned it’s possible to “perfume” an entire home. All three levels! Love your beautiful poem.


  15. Ali Grimshaw June 11, 2021 / 5:00 pm

    The smell of lilacs is such a blessing. I love it when I am walking and experience the scent before I know where it is coming from. Then begins the search for the blooming.

    such a delightful meditation, serenity in a garden …

    Lilac are my secret favorite flowers (shhh…don’t tell the others), worthy of their every ode. Thanks for sharing this sensuous delight. ~peace, Jason

    Oh to be lost in a moment of lilacs. Thank you for taking me there.๐Ÿ˜Š

    There are so many along one alley near my house, they make you drunk when you walk by!
