Nature's Jewels A - L .

Updated on April 6, 2014
Source

Here I share these gems

From A right through to L;

Oh how wondrous is nature

Each jewel a magic spell.


Good day one and all ; today it is raining here in Wales.

Nothing new I must add.

However it is bright and sunny here in my haven as I share many more of life's jewels with you all.

Here are links to my other hubs in this series.

Today's song choice is 'Dacw' Nghariad' (Here Comes My Love)sung by Eve Goodman.

I love this song and it fitted in so well with the metre of my thoughts today.

Apple Blossom

Again I share the Blossom Tree

So fragile yet so strong;

A beauty so majestic

Oh how it does belong.


x


Here we spy the Bugle

Is that deep rich blue;

Enhancing all our world

Yes for me and you.


x


Columbines tall and proud

Lanterns of true pink;

Those tales of childhood

Does she make boys wink.


x


You have heard of daisies

Bot not the Daisy Double;

A magic so infectious

Never burst that bubble.


x


Here is a little rhyme

Of the sweet Eye Bright;

Hearts oh so happy

What a wondrous sight.



x




Now here comes a favourite

A Fuchsia full of grace;

Her posture oh so evident

To claim her rightful place.







Gorse.

I hear a little ditty

When the gorse is out of blossom

Then oh dearie me

Then kissing's out of fashion.

x


The dainty herb Twopence

or indeed the Creeping Jenny;

Time to make your wish

I'm sure ther will be plenty.

x

Have you seen our Iris

Embrace a running stream;

Her golden aura shines

Her smile is almost seen.

x

Our sweet little jasmine

Blossoms small and white;

Her scents do bewitch

Through the heart of night.


x


I know you have met

The famous Buttercup;

Well here is a cousin

The majestic Kingcup.


x


Oh Lily Of the Valley

Or Ladder To Heaven;

Embraces to the skies

Each moment of true wonder

Lovely blossoms thrive

Perhaps a magic spell

Here I now share mine

A promise of tomorrows

Bright sweet scents entice

Embrace each of life's jewels

Take my hand and follow me.

Haiku: Jewels from my heart.

Jewels from my heart

With yours I will gladly share

Embracing sweet scents.

Each season compels

Eager hearts to lift and share

To share and to care.

Rictameter: Blossoms.

Blossoms

Sweet scents embrace

Awakenings from our hearts

With open arms greet and welcome

Take to your hearts each withering blossom

Sweet moments of sincerity

Days of awesome wonder

Oh sweet scented

Blossom

I hope you enjoyed today's visit and lots of love to you all from my little corner of Wales.

      you have exceptionally beautiful flowers in your side of the planet. I loved the sequence of the photos and especially the last one which tied all of your thoughts about these flowers together. The song produces a gracious mood. Everyone should wake up to a hub like this with such lovely music accompanying it. I love your mood and am sharing this hub:) I'm also posting it on my sister's FB page because she loves flowers and I think she will also love the music.

      I loved the concept - Nature's jewels from A to L. And your verses to go with the list - awesome!

      Since only last week I have started compiling my alphabetical list of "nature's jewels" that K2 and I encounter during our hikes. For example, 'C' is for creek, 'G' is for grass, 'V' is for vultures, 'Z' is for Zinnias, so on and so forth.

      I am so glad to be on this page that I can totally relate to due to my love for nature.

      Stay happy!

      I have again bookmarked this beautiful hub which tells so much about very pretty flowers. Eiddwen, in the previous hub, I read about buttercup and now I knew kingcup-how wonderful ! And, flowers like bright eye, lily of valley, iris are so awesome. However, one flower jasmine is my favorite and the fragrance it spreads in the air is so heavenly and soul-uplifting ! If I find now myself more absorbed in the beauty of mother nature, I owe it to your beautiful poetry about such beautiful things of nature. I really loved reading these very wonderful and lovely poems displaying so deep affection for mother nature. A visit to your hub is like a visit to a heaven of bliss. Voted up.
