True Beauty Shines Through.

Updated on January 30, 2014
Source

There is much sadness in the world today and there is not a person alive who hasn't felt the pains of life through one reason or another.

I know I have but by today I have learnt to look beyond this veil and to bask in the beauty which is still here.

Today's song choice is a beautiful Welsh love song 'Tami' sung by Mary Hopkin. I think that Mary sang this back in the 70s and I love the purity in her voice. As pure as the love of nature in all its splendour.

I hope you enjoy today's hub.

Rictameter: So White.

Source

So white

Sweet innocence

A sweet virginal hue

The Delphiniums for me sweet blooms

Snowdrops heads bow low with a bashful glance

Sweet Scented Night stock I so love

The soft snow covers all

Each tender flake

So white.

Rictameter:Green Hues.

Source

Green hues

Line all meadows

Caresses baby birds

Prickly stems protect each gorse bloom

The gentle forms of each hill and mountain

The grasses glisten with dewdrops

A dark shadow will blend

Those magical

Green hues.

Freeverse: A Touch Of The Blues.

Source

If ever you feel

a touch of the blues

choose carefully

sifting

listening

deciding

before that very final choice.

Walk over the luscious

carpet of

velvety

blues.

Blossoms

so rare

so welcomed

by

my beating heart.

Feel that softness

and

a sweet scent

as it softly protrudes

carresses

around each

bare toe;

a wonder so rare so blessed.

Each newborn dawn

awakens;

our heartbeats

so soft

so willing and

so caressed.

Petals often

close to protect

from within,

new dawns

opens those

petals so fragile

and yet

so strong.

The bees awaken

for their

nectar filled days ;

the sunrise

a magical charm

from above,

into our hearts

entwined with

love,

hope

and

promises so rare.

I walk forward

and

with

each sweet step

my mind so refreshed

to feel emotions so new ;

to learn lessons

in an innocense

so pure

and

so tender.

The blues to me

are

Mother Nature's blue charms,

sent to show me my way;

Not a colour of darkness

and tears

but a colour of hope

of love,of promises

I hold dear

and

cherish .

Those clear

blue lessons of love.





Rictameter: Sunshine.

Source

Sunshine

So warms my heart

Daffodils beautiful

A Poached Egg Plant paves each new way.

Yellow blooms of the Gorse softens each stem

The Sunflower stands majestic

Each resembling Summer

My heart doth love

Sunshine.





Rictameter: So Pink.

Source

So pink

Full of mischief

The wondrous Petunia

The Rose with its touch of velvet

Each Lupin soars to the heavens above

The Rhododendrons reminisce

A Carnations sweet kiss

Full of sweet joys

So pink.

Haiku: Sweet Circles Of Life.

Source

Those three little words

Each raindrop doth compel us

To say 'I love you '!!


The rain not so bleak

Beautiful hues magnify

Each raindrop so bright.


Each raindrop glistens

Emphasising woven webs

Winking and twinkling.


Those rippling puddles

Fill each being with happy thoughts

Sweet circles of life.

Haiku: Heartfelt Rainbows.

Source

The land of rainbows

Somewhere for you and me

Blue skies embracing.


Dreams of being in love

Once upon a star so true

Moonbeams found their way.


That sad clinging veil

Flies away on sweet breezes

Each heart to embrace.


Beauty to treasure

Unconditional wonders

From this heart of mine.

I hope you have enjoyed today's hub and I wish you all a wonderful day.

Lots of love from my little corner of Wales.

      All the beautiful colours of nature here and you have done justice to them all. My favourites are the bold, deep yellow daffodils and the delicate primroses, along with the vibrant blues of bluebells, cornflowers and forget-me-nots. They all infuse a sense of well-being and wonder, giving us joy, making us the love the natural world, its plants and its creatures. Lovely!

      May you have a beautiful day too, despite all this water!

      Hello Eddy,

      In life there is always sadness, but the real tragedy is allowing the despair to poison the perfect gift of each new day. Your beautiful poems give us so many reasons to smile as do their inspirations from nature. Thank you!

      All the best,

      Counting Haiku syllables and suggestions:

      "Somewhere for you and [for] me" (seven syllables)

      "Dreams of being in love" [Dreams of love that lasts.] (fivc syllables)

      I felt the power of your poems, their link to colors, and their positive look at life, and I felt that the short lines made each phrase so much more powerful. You have a special talent you can thrill at prayerfully accepting and magnifying as you have done here.

      I found these lines especially memorable imagery:

      "Feel that softness

      and

      a sweet scent

      as it softly protrudes

      carresses

      around each

      bare toe;"

      A mindful start to my new day.

      I just had an idea Eiddwen - have you ever thought of teaching poetry?

      About your poem. It was great! I was going to listen to the video while I read it. I thought that I had never heard of Mary Hopkin - Tami, until the song started. Then I realized that I had heard it in English. When they sang it in Wales I just sat back and listened with a small smile which slowly grew a bit.

      I also enjoyed the words of your poem and realized that I learn from each poem (of yours) that I read. Keep this up, you are doing good.

The images in your poetry are beautiful. Your hubs are always so full of optimism and your 'corner of Wales' is fortunate to have you. Have a wonderful day!
