Secrets to Share

we gathered
within blustery
summer days
awaiting
secrets held to share with friends
 our special moments

The poetry form shared here is Shadorma, a spanish form taught today over at One Stop Poetry in this weeks form lesson.  This is my first attempt at Shadorma and I will be linking there at well.

Excellent capture of two important things we often forget as adults, sharing and trust.

I love those blustery summer days! The wind cools you off and life feels so sweet! You capture the mood nicely!

Wonderful imagery and form. And I too love those blustery summer days! :)

Oh to live somewhere summer is mild. It is weighty and wet here in Texas and when the wind blows sandy and irritating. Yet I know there are gentler climes where summer is savored for its every hour and held in contrast to brutal winter. This was quite lovely and a well written piece in the shadorma form. Gay

Secrets shared then wafted away on the breeze---I love this shadorma form for its ability to pull just a wispy bit out of the current. Yours is lovely.
