Murray- Lavender Fields

Lavender Fields

 High summer in hills and mountain valleys
 Sunny Gordes, Sault, Sederon
 France’s fragrant blue gold
 waves like wheat on the wind
 blushes mauve to deep violet
 softens Romanesque Senanque Abbey
 its haunting scent carried in essential oils
 soaps, bouquets, sachets
 flavours ice cream, honey, nougat.
 Healing blossoms
 Lavandula angustifolia
 propagate in belle Provence
 ancient home to Roman generals
 Now tourists flock 
 to bring this elixir home
 as cicadas chant in chorus.
