Carry Me Home – Fifth Themed Improv Challenge

As a recap, my wonderful friend and fellow blogger – The Dreaming –  and I have decided to start a bi-weekly themed challenge!
The theme I was given this time was “Lavender”, and I gave her “Ripples”.
Please do check out her page, as I’m sure she’ll be putting up something fantastic for her theme! 🙂

This poem was a quick 15 minute write up as usual, but I hope you all enjoy it!

Carry Me Home

Rolling fields of a purple haze meet the crimson sky above,
Kissing the Sun’s farewell decent, small gestures filled with love.
Reach out your palm like a magic carpet and seat me upon your throne,
Rolling fields of such tranquil dreams, my dearest carry me home.

The scented breeze plays through your strands, leading me across your face,
Caressing my skin, my senses and mind, with your enchanted purple lace.
Guide me through your linear maze in this journey that is mine alone,
Sweet scented breeze, my silent compass, my dearest carry me home.

A forgotten memory resurfaces, strong, as a sketch on your horizon,
Diverting me from the path of my calling, an allure, the sweetest poison.
Hold fast my heart and lead me to the place where I shall atone,
Forgotten memories, a sea of sins, my dearest carry me home.

An endless journey from ground to gate, each step the same as before,
I run, full speed, to My Almighty Lord who is waiting at His door.
Lavender fields in His gracious gardens, where mercy and love are grown,
The end to my journey, eternal peace, my dearest carry me home.

    • The colours in the image (and, of course, of the plant itself) are truly phenomenal! Yet another blessing to this planet 🙂

      I’m sorry to hear that the lavender in your garden died, but now that it’s summer it’ll hopefully grow strong and healthy!

    • Hello there
      Thank you very much for your kind words, they’re much appreciated!

      I look forward to looking through your site! I hope that it’s ok with you if I look through it even though I am not a Christian. I am Muslim, but the love of God, and the constant hope for His mercy and grace, is what brings believers together 🙂

      I enjoy learning about different faiths, and seeing the similarities in them too! As a Muslim, it is essential that I too have a love for Jesus, as he was an important Prophet for us.

      I’d love to visit your site, and I hope that’s ok with you 🙂
      God bless!
