In a Drop ~ a plein air poem & meditation on our connection with nature

In a Drop

 

 

of saltwater,

you can see an ocean

blueing;

 

of rain,

you can hear blossoms

opening;

 

of wine,

you can taste a landscape

sunning;

 

of quicksilver,

you can scent weather

coming;

 

of ink,

you can touch a poet

dreaming;

 

of a tear,

you can feel your being

flowing.

Into the Wild Green Wonder ~ a plein air poem & ode to another Spring

Into the Wild Green Wonder

 

                an Ode to Spring

 

Under Spring’s Wild Blue

Wonder we enter its new

and renewing Green.

Enchanting us round parks

and woodlands, ponds,

hillsides, meadowlands.

Awakening us

through all our years,

all the ages of earth,

all the pages of history,

poetry, mythology.

With its symphony

of daring colors. 

Its delicate flowering.

Its essencing 

of innocence; ecstasy

of purest presence.

Beckoning us

to fall once again 

into the wild green wonder

of its outstretched arms,

like forever young and

eager lovers.

Re: Birth ~ a plein air poem for our Spring Equinox

Re: Birth

 

            for our Spring Equinox(es)

 

First breath.

To last breath.

What flows between

is the reveling

and leveling

of living.

The many faces

and found graces

of loving.

The transcendental

moments ~

of great epiphanies,

deep ecstasies,

timeless memories.

The embodiments

of you becoming

even now

ever new,

ever free

to spring.

Let There Be Lightness ~ a plein air poem for the Winter Solstice

Let There Be Lightness

  

                                      at the winter solstice

 

To dispel all darkness,

all heaviness.

Let there be waxing,

toward all things

lightening,

all things humanizing.

Let the world turn back

to itself anew;

the stopping sun

return back aglow;

hope burn hot

and bright

in eager hearts.

Let us, as Nature’s

creations, remember

its sacredness,

and bring to life

and each other

the great sparks of soul

that shoot and shimmer

within our earthliness.
