NATURE

Life should be full of rosy hues

Sunshine and laughter

To ward away the blues

Sunkissed mornings at first light

Glorious sunsets at close of night

Happy times midst nature’s seasons

From fire lights dancing

And moonbeams streaming

To fragile webs decked with dew

Like diamond garlands for all to view

Flowers swaying to a gentle breeze

Leaden with nectar for honey bees

Insects about on their gossamer wings

While all around they buzz and sing

Like a chorus in effortless flight

Reflecting nature in dawning light

Dappled sunbeams peeping through

Carpeting the ground in colourful hue

A scene that portrays a peaceful theme

Languid, picturesque, quiet and serene

  1. A gem Wendy – really conjures up the glory of nature. I am mainly writing humerous pices at the moment

    • Thanks Michael. I tried to comment but it’s not recognising my login details. I’ll have to keep trying. I must be doing something wrong. Thanks for sending me the link. I’ll try and bookmark it via my computer so that I can access the site directly.

  4. Hi Wendy, this poem is fantastic! You set up some good rhythms and the theme is great. I have a little feedback (been practicing critique/feedback, inspired by your reviews). If you are interested we can correspond via email or something. There’s just one thing I want to highlight that would take this to the next level. Are you sure you haven’t always been a poet?

    • I’m no expert either, lol. When I started out with poetry, constructive feedback from other poets ended up providing unparalleled inspiration and helped me gain the confidence to keep growing. I love Wendy’s poem, no doubt at all. Passing on the experience is the least I can do for all the support I’ve had from Wendy over the years.

  6. I’m not gonna lie. This poem puts me in a good mood and makes me want to go outside! Hopefully go outside during the spring time though. Haha. Great work and thank you for sharing!

    • Gosh – thanks for your encouraging words Parker. It’s akin to hitting the jackpot when a writer’s words moves a reader. I’m, admittedly, still new to writing poems and no doubt, have a lot to learn. Thank you again.

  7. Unfortunately, life isn’t always full of such hues, which is why we need to stay grounded in something deeper and bigger than ourselves.

    • I’m not sure how I missed your comment but thank you for your response. We do indeed need to remain grounded, but I feel we also need to feed our spirit and appreciate the beauty that surrounds us … perhaps more so with the pandemic we are all dealing with. 🌹
