Take Five From Nature: Inspirational Picture-Poems.
Nature speaks, if we will only listen. In the stillness of the night, in the quietness of the heart, a moment here or there, nature brings life's lessons to us in unexpected places--a little fern thriving on the roof top, a lone seagull soaring above the sea of oil spill, the caress of the raindrops on the cheek, the magical cayola of pink and orange at sunset--nature transcends words to speak to the heart. What you ask? It speaks of beauty, of tenacity, of love, of perserverance, of tenderness or of pain. It brings hope, healing and inspiration that only nature can. In its own terms, in its own way--it speaks and it only takes five.
This group of "Take Five from Nature" poems seeks to capture emotions that a single picture brings. And hopefully in doing so, someone, somewhere, somehow will find beauty in these picture-poems, if not in the words, then at least in the stunning pictures provided by another hubber, Jill of all trades (she has killer photography skills).
See me not.
Neatly folded on the twig
One bad boy
Just hanging low
Sitting smug, all eyes
Two dots in the world of dots
The world passes…
No time for dots
Or joining them.
Carried on the strides of
The harried, hurried crowd,.
While I gawk, amongst dewdrops
A world in inversion
A wonder in motion.
Beads of gold and crimson
Pearls on extension
Rise to embrace
Wonder and grace
Like a necklace around the neck
The wearer transforms
So is beauty worn on the inside.
Deceit has a name
Beauty in disguise
All decked out like a silky hammock
String across like
laces of comfort, woven
into the silvery dawn of light.
The translucent wings
wedged in the delicate strands
forward, backward, stuck
stark against the tragic blue,
legs grasp in hopeful prayer.
An unsuspecting moment is al it takes
Amidst the veil of darkness
Sparkles glow from a dewdrop
The brightest, the boldest.
Not the snow globe sitting by your bedside
Forever bliss trapped in glittery snow.
This is nature's globe reflecting
Life as it happens,
Happy, sad, angry, bitter, glad
It doesn't lie, it doesn't fabricate
Naked honesty, just the bare facts.
