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

beauty and mystery (at Sunken Garden- St. Petersburg, FL )

I love all of the flowers and I love the trees

AND somehow it is the walkways and paths that call to me

Beautiful, yet mysterious…

what is up ahead?

what is around that bend?

what beauty awaits?
