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.

Poetry Sunday-Summer Delights

Summer Delights

 

 

Spring turns to summer, Night turns to day.

And all about me the garden does play.

 

Bees fill their pockets, young birds take first flight-

Me, I’m staring up into the sky so bright.

 

 

Do I climb, do I soar,

Do I lay in the grass once more?

 

 

Soft fragrances wafting slow down my day,

As I contemplate the clouds, and rest from my play.

 

 

Whether splashing in water, or picking berries ripe-

There is always time to savor sweet summer delights!

Today is the Summer Solstice, and the changing of the seasons is upon us.  I wrote this poem early last summer in July.  I was recuperating from surgery, and had ample time to watch the seasons change before my eyes.  On my garden blog, Wednesday, I will be featuring the wrap up of my meme, Seasonal Celebrations.  There is still time to join in as we celebrate the coming of summer.  You can read how to be part of the celebration here.

Special Note:  The pictures here are of various pollinators that were visiting my garden in early summer.  They are the lifeblood of the garden and are responsible for the flowers blooming year after year, and veggies growing for a wonderful harvest.
