Swirls of Blue - I Give You Imagination

Starry Night - Van Gogh

In swirls of blue, I dream
outside the boundaries of life
under a starry sky and yellow
daffodil moon...
I see universal possibilities
beyond the church steep(le)
stretching to the heavens
I hear the songs of nature;
hills and trees whisper
promises of hope

written for dVerse
Quadrille # 72

incorporating the word Steep  

Thank you for visiting


  1. I like the thought of nature's songs and whispers of hope.

  2. I like the colours in your quadrille, the ‘songs of nature’, the hills and trees whispering promises of hope.

  3. Much is out there to see, possibilities endless indeed

  4. Steeple - clever!
    Where there is hope, there is always endless possibilities.

  5. Yellow daffodil moon is such a stunning image! ❤️

  6. I think we need to see possibilities beyond the steeple, as I interpreted this to mean beyond the building of a church...especially if that imagination leads to realities.

  7. A daffodil moon and promises of lovely!

  8. I loved the use of "steep(le)." And who can find fault with that illustration?

  9. Wonderful ekphrastic. That night sky does always light with both hope and powerful mystery for me. I love
    "In swirls of blue, I dream

    outside the boundaries of life"

    This is the 5th poem this prompt that features dreaming. Y'all help me figure out the connection of dreams with "steep" is it hard to climb the sharp inclines of the morning? Also I think steeple is a perfect use of the prompt word, no need for the parentheses in my book, but the parentheses do focus the reader on how a steeple inclines, pointing to the larger sky, and possibilities.

  10. I love how you focused on the sky behind the steeple.. just like Vincent, a message maybe seeing all the churches cannot give us.

  11. I love the daffodil moon! You've captured the painting well in your poem.

  12. A daffodil moon...such an apt description. Thank you for sharing your poem.

  13. Another beauty. I too like daffodil moon.

  14. Promises of hope! Beautiful!
