Blue sprouts

Humidity lurks at the surface
of thirsty pupils and suddenly


when blue buds
magically sprout

and then shoot
towards the powder blue sky

as magic dust does
from fairy wands

when a fairy demands romance
in a thunderstorm

Mm, I love this, especially the last two lines!

delightful write. I agree with fireblossom in that those last lines make an impression.

I love the last two lines!!

Ha! I guess that is the consensus.

I will add a little more to my comment then: perhaps you should bring the beginning of the poem up to par with the last two lines. For example, I don't personally understand the pound cake metaphor.
