Poetry Sunday-Meadow Delights



Meadow Delights



Perfumed air moves lazily past my windowpane,

Refreshing my soul in shadows.

As a kaleidoscope of colors delights my eyes,

Joy abounding-senses fulfilled.

My meadow  inspired me to write this poem in June of 2012.  The meadow comes alive with daffodils before the spring flowers dazzle.  Then the blue lupines and daisies, pictured here, spring up to delight the senses.



I am joining in with Poets United for their weekly poetry link up for poets who blog.  Visit them to read some more wonderful verse.

  1. Your meadow is absolutely gorgeous Donna. How I would love to walk in it, amongst those beautiful flowers, and the daffodils in Spring would be glorious too.

  2. How I wish to walk in a meadow as mesmerizing as this one 😀
    Beautifully captured..!

    Lots of love,

  3. Ah, That was just what I needed. I worked outside yesterday. The grapes are just coming in on the arbor, tight green marbles that will flourish into sweet fruit. The pears are there as well, like golf balls. But it is wonderful to see the process moving once more. refreshing.

  4. I favor meadows over lawns any time.. we have a little woodland meadow that I cut with scythe.. such a big difference with flowers coming…

    1. I agree Bjorn…my neighbors don’t understand the meadow and think it is weeds and why not keep it cut neat like grass….grass is favored here. With all the snow that falls, I am lucky I never have to cut my meadow…it naturally decomposes.

  5. My ruminations went in a similar direction today. It must be that time of the year, I suppose. A lovely, life-rejoicing post, Donna.

  6. wondeful view you have there Donna. No doubt you can write lots of poems. The scent, the sight around you are indeed your muses.

    I bet you always start your day right because of the beauty around you

  7. The entire collection of images delights! I love lazy perfumed air! Lazy is perfect! It makes me lazy–or rather, it relaxes me into happiness.

  8. Oh wow, the meadow is gorgeous. And what a lovely sight to the eyes. Pretty poem, Donna!

    Have a happy Monday and new week ahead!

  9. How lucky you are to have such a meadow. It’s a perfect subject for your perfect poetry and photography. It pleased my senses too.

  10. What a wonderful post, Donna! Lupins and daisies and green foliage… in this post there is so much beauty.
    Our meadows are not really blooming yet and the weather is rather cool, but I can relate to your lovely poem, if I change one line:
    “a kaleidoscope of greens delights my eyes”. There are so many beautiful shades of green around us now.
    Thank you for sharing! Have a great week ahead!

  11. Ah, I’m staying more in the sun, so long time waiting for, can’t have it enough! Though love your ‘Meadow delight’ :)x

  12. I love the images in your poem, Donna … the contrast of the shadows with the kaleidoscope of colo(u)r. Thank you for your kind comment.

  13. Good Morning, Donna.
    How I love to see your beautiful world. Those pure colors in the clean light are so lovely…!!!!.
    You made my day.
    Have a happy day!

  14. The native lupines are gorgeous and to have a whole meadow of them would be heaven! I’ve noticed an abundance of ox-eye daisies along the roadsides this spring and I plan to cut a few for a vase.
    Thanks for linking to Mosaic Monday.

  15. Very pretty meadow. I love the wild lupines. I just saw a field of them at a nature garden in Toronto. They loved the sandy soil.

  16. “meadow” has to be one of my favorite words.
    Something so effortless about it….like a sea of easy blossom.
    Especially a meadow in June (swoon).
    thanks for sharing the sweetness,

  17. I am deeply inspired by your poem Donna, I feel as though I am there experiencing all of my senses with you. As always your photos are beautiful. Thanks for sharing the love up-close with I Heart Macro ♥
