Poetry Sunday: Nature Speak

Nature Speak


Dewdrops of rain kissing leaf and flower,

Cool crisp breeze cleanses my soul.

The hum of bee and cicada fills the air,

Sun warms my skin, lulling me into a trance.

The leaves bend with the wind,

Keeping time with my heart.

The flow of life all around me,

As I stand in this one moment.

I was reading a wonderful book, which inspired me to write a stream of consciousness poem in one minute this summer…staying in the moment.  So I went out after a rainstorm, sat on my step, breathed in and observed for one minute (OK 3 minutes) and wrote my thoughts and observations from the heart.


The pictures here are of bees going crazy for my native Summersweet bush flowers this summer…it has a dreamy scent.


I am joining in with Poets United for their weekly poetry link up, Poetry Pantry, for poets who blog.




I leave you with a few additional words about nature speak.  I welcome you to download the photo and share it.
