The Jewels Of Life.

Good day one and all. The jewels in my life have nothing to do with expensive pearls or gold jewellery ; oh no my jewels are the ones which enchant my everyday for free.

My jewels are the ones which enchant my heart as I walk through nature's beautiful lands.

To some they may be the weeds of life but to me their beauty cannot be equalled ;their enchantment unconditional.

Let me share some of my precious and treasured jewels with you here today.

Each golden Dandelion

What do I see?

I see a treasure

For you and me...................................



Oh Pink Campion

Blushing and coy;

Petals of silk

Such gems to enjoy..............................



That Climbing Ivy

So sure so strong;

Your beauty spreads

You know you belong.................................



Magical Wild Rose

Scents to savour;

A strength so tender

Never to waver..........................................



Oh sweet Red Clover

One precious bloom;

A stance almost regal

Erases each gloom..............................



A cherished Poppy

An emblem for sure;

Memorials ring out

Treasured and pure...........................



Glance at the Speedwell

Petals so blue;

With a warmth I share

This jewel with you..........................



Cherished Primroses

Each pastel shade;

Filling our hearts

Never to fade....................................



Those so cute Daisies

That Daisy chain;

Memories so warm

Overpower each pain.......................



Blue-Bells a carpet

So bright so blue;

Come hold my hand

I'll share with you.................................



Buttercups so magical

'Do you like butter?'

Memories from childhood

Warm and so tender...................................



Sweet Apple Blossoms

So fragile so sweet;

Petals so silken

Fall at our feet.......................................



Source

Magical moments

Each instinct ever flowing

To share is to care.


Source

Blossoms and treasure

Sweet Butterflies and fairies

Magical jewels.

Source

That tugging so strong

Sweet instincts of enchantment

Precious hearts blossom.

Source

Magical havens

Each heart full of enchantment

Flowing so freely.


I hope you enjoyed today's hub and here's to wishing you a wonderful day.

Also sending you all lots of love from my little corner of Wales.

Eddy.

Though I admire all flowers and trees with all my heart, I know only a few of them by names. Here in this hub, you have fondly called them by their names while weaving fine threads of your beautiful poetry around their elegant bodies. I have enjoyed myself double, one I savored your heartfelt beautiful poetry and other I got to know the beautiful names of all these flowers. Some names like blue-bells , buttercup and wild rose are so appropriate to the very form and nature of these flowers. I wonder who were those people who had coined such beautiful names of these flowers ! Loved reading wonderful poetry about such awesome flowers. I have bookmarked this hub to savor it time and again. Thank you.

I love this hub, Eddy. Reminds me of the dandelions my kids pick for me. They say, "Look, Mama, a flower for you." No denying their beauty, even if they are a weed to most.

Eddy we are in a pathway for Monarch butterflies here. I used to pull and weed out all the "milkweed" that they need because it is a weed. Now we water and fertilize them. One man's weed is another's sustenance. Loved this read, thank you. (And do not tell anyone -- I just really like Michael Jackson)

What beautiful jewels which spruce up our our yards, gardens, parks. It is too bad that I cannot do that here having rain and T-storms all summer. I could not hear all of the words but your words were happy and the video was sad. Other than the video, I enjoyed it and voted it up.

This is a well presented and very attractive hub Eddy, with so many well constructed little verses. I like the photmontages at the end and I love the images of flowers with the little close-up inserts. Very clever and beautifully put together.

And of course, I love the opening sentiment - the jewels of nature are free, yet far more precious than any jewels money can buy. Voted up, plus 4 accolades, and shared. Alun

These are truly jewels! Like you, I also love flowers. They are my very first models when I started my photography adventure. I'm so happy to get to know their names too because some of them are not found in my part of the world.

Rated up and beautiful!

Your sentiments are beautiful, Eddy. These flowers truly are the 'jewels' around us. The simple beauty of a flower, even a dandelion, is lovely to see. I love dandelions and hate to dig them out of the yard. They do have a beauty all their own. Thanks for reminding us of these simple beauties all around us with your wonderful poetry. Voted up +
