Hyacinth Heart

Fragrant blooms
from her open blouse
forever-spring smile
dead eyes

#NaPoWriMo Day 24!

Today is the 9th birthday of the runaway sentence!
I posted a video to Instagram for the occasion, come and see.

This humble blog has been such an influence 
for good in my life. I’m grateful to you, gentle readers, 
for visiting and engaging with me here. Love to all of you!


  1. Gorgeous write! Happiest ninth blog birthday, Marian!!❤️

  2. I love the whole idea of a hyacinth heart. Happy 9 years. I have been reading you for all of them, and what a journey it has been. It has taken us far. And your kids are tall and lanky now, and so talented!

  3. Succinct & beautifully presented. Conga rats on the poem and the anniversary.

  4. Hyacinth heart is lovely but the dead eyes give a shiver.

  5. Happy 9th birthday of the runaway sentence, Marian! I love the hyacinth and the ‘forever-spring smile’ - I might look away from the dead eyes, though.

  6. That open blouse, those dead eyes... make me think of Carmilla.

    Happiest 9th blogoversary! I shall check out the video.

  7. Startling conclusion to your deceptively lovely poem, packing all the more punch for that.

    I am so glad you decided to start blogging your poems! Please never stop.

  8. congrats, Marian.
    That last line is a dagger ~
