(Whitneys – 2)
That mimic wings
Gently settles In a sanctifying sight.
In a garden
Soothes my soul.
In the sun
Makes me extol
It’s white wonders with great glee.
These lovely white flowere are Anemones. There are several varieties, and I’m not sure which these are. They could either be the Japanese Anemone, or the Snowdrop Anemone. In any case, I spotted them at the Lake Harriet Rose Gardens. I loved their broad petals that I described here as Angel wings. They almost look like Butterflies.
This poem is a Whitney. Two, actually.
A Whitney is a poem that has a set format of 3/4/3/4/3/4/7
I’ve done this one in two Whitneys to make two stanzas in Whitney format. I’ve also added rhyming which is not a requirement of this style, but not a specific scheme.
