Poetry: Soaring Free

Soaring free among the clouds,

The ground is far below…

The wind upon my ears so loud,

Oh what a thrill to know…

To dip between these puffs of white,

So high above the trees…

So free to be, a great delight,

The joys that I could sieze.

Poetry: Budding Anticipation

Redolent blooms,tucked in tight,

Buds of anticipation…

Nearly here, such a sight,

Caught in trepidation…

Will they bloom or fall off soon,

I really want to know…

The waiting game can make one loon,

Staying tuned for one great show!

Poetry: Packin’ Pollen

Packin’ pollen, this little bee,

From head to toe, as you can see…

A morning quest, to gather up,

Some fine plant zest, on which to sup…

A pleasant song, how your buzz hums…

Hurry along, for winter comes.

Today’s word challenge piffle just didn’t fit in anywhere. Maybe next time…

Poetry: Resplendent

Resplendent and full,

This elegant bloom…

Such focus it pulls,

Your eyes to it zoom…

So too are drawn bees,

To sample its wares…

This scene like a frieze,

Enlightens your cares.

Poetry: Serenely Poised

Serenely poised pods of life,

Cling to their host pine…

Potecting seeds, safe from strife,

Quite a nice design…

Dangling here these little cones,

Offer quite a scene…

Tanish brown in softer tones,

Against a bed of green.

Author’s Note: Introducing “Shared Here”

When I created mindescapes.net I intended it to be place for calming and positive prose and poetry. I have mostly kept to that but also enjoy creating other types of artwork and writings.

They always seemed a bit out of place here so I have started a separate blog for just such posts. If you enjoyed the short stories, humorous limericks, and holiday challenges you will find that content appearing over on Shared Here.

I hope you continue to enjoy the poetry and prose found here too!

Thank you for reading!

Haiku: Begun, These Acorns Have

Cluster formation…

Armored shells grow, helmets tight…

Acorns on parade.

Poetry: Clear Blue Sky

Clear blue sky, no clouds in sight,

High above the trees…

Just the sun, still shining bright,

Floats along with ease…

Enjoy it now, this pretty day,

While it does stay clear…

Take a run or make some hay,

Until more rain draws near.

Poetry: Snow White

Snow white petals, like a fan,

Grace the blooms around…

Open broadly, nature’ s plan,

Welcome scents abound…

Red tipped stamen, contrast well,

The petals of the scene…

Bunched together, they compel,

A beauty quite serene.

Poetry: Pretty in Pink

Rose of Sharon, now in bloom,

Cheers the heart, reduces gloom…

Quite profound, one might propose,

The ton of joy, from a rose…

Somewhat small and simple thing,

Yet makes your soul start to sing…

So here we are, here we think,

Wonderful, this bloom of pink.

Poetry: Welcome, Sun

Welcome, Sun, into this day,

We’re glad to see you here…

Spread your light, chase out the gray,

Away you send our fear…

Warming now your presence be,

The chill flees at your sight…

Uncovering much to see,

Bathed in your morning light.

Poetry: Tiny Treasures

Tiny treasures in a bunch,

Set the world aglow…

With their bright and cheerful punch,

Putting on a show…

Snow white blooms with yellow eyes,

Lit up by the sun…

Dancing under breezy skies,

Having lots of fun!
