love (haiku)

all-encompassing

absolute, true and boundless

is Mother Earth’s love

she nurtures all in

a universal embrace

will you love her back?

listening to the rain

she sat alone

in the quiet solitude

that is morning

before the sun’s first rays

break through to light the sky

and wake up the land

she listened intently

to the hushed murmur

of the light rain

trying to make out the secrets

she knew it was trying to share

the rain grew seemingly frustrated

with her apparent daftness

as it began to fall at a greater tempo

making music as it fell

on the house and on the trees

hoping that she would catch the melody

it played against the leaves

breathe

tree-1230098_1920

breathe in

the sweet spring air

relax beneath the clouds

bask in the warmth of the sun

let the fertile earth’s energy flow into you

while you recline on her blanket of green

listen as she murmurs through the trees that shade you

let the tendrils of doubt and self-loathing that choke and restrict you wither and die

as the pure poetry of nature soothes your soul

and flowers of peace blossom

leave her sanctuary happy and revitalized

White flower from the Chicago Botanic Garden

Another flower picture from Gigi and the resulting micropoetry from me 🙂

I see a little girl, named
Sunshine (or Sunny for short)
with her blonde hair
in pigtails
and big blue eyes
gleaming mischievously
as she plays hopscotch
in her starched
white dress

Flower…Chicago Botanic Garden (today)

This gorgeous flower from Gigi prompted a micro poem from me so I had to reblog 🙂

Here is the poem:

blossoms
blush prettily
as they unfold
their supple petals
to cradle wee fae folk
as they sleep

tree goddess

her hair a mass of flowing branches

leaves and twigs woven together

create beautiful braids

that frame her face

jacaranda blossoms

are the flowers in her hair

and as she dances and plays

they leave a pretty purple path

will you follow her?

Tune in

Listen closely my friend

Do you hear voices

in the falling rain

and the whispers

on the wind?

Tune in with your soul

find some comfort there

in their sweet refrain

before the nothingness

eats you whole

~Melanie Thomason
