Delphinium Dreams


Bold blue blankets
clearing, sparkling
in warm golden hues.
Brushing shoulders as 
the trail snakes,
spirals through
glistening meadow.

Streams of sunlight
peak through thick
canopy, pine and poplar.
Rays tickle upturned
face, warming.

Delphinium haunts
dreams that night.
Floating through
clouds of azure, 
alluring and lingering
through the day.
Yearning to be back.

  1. Larkspur, a beautiful flower and a lovely poem. it grows on our property but singly or maybe with a few companions. There is a place called Diamond Crossing in the Granite Chief Wilderness behind Squaw Valley where Giant Larkspur grows. Many is the time that I have stopped to admire it after a long day of backpacking. 🙂 –Curt

    1. Hmmm… Are they the same flower? “Common Name: Larkspur. Scientific Name: Delphinium X Belladonna”

      This is why my husband does the gardening. I have a black thumb…

      1. That they are. 🙂 The belladonna is also interesting, poison. Women in earlier European times sometimes took belladonna because it made their pupils large, thus the name. 🙂 –Curt
