Nature's Song


Nudge gently - whisper notes
only the pollen can hear

Peaceful mania, unleashed symphony
Ignited layers tracing axis
of petals alight on the stroke of genius

Fertile magma softly release happy droplets
without tears. Touching moment -
in clarity - unforgettable scent -

imprint long after DNA linger on walls
Melody in the crescendo of nature's song

NaPoWriMo Day 30
Shared with Imaginary Garden with Real Toads - Open Link Monday
d'Verse Poets Pub - Open Link Night Week 42

I'm so happy to have taken part in NaPoWriMo. Completed the challenge of writing a poem every day for the month of April, plus an extra one for fun. Now time to find out if I'm poemed out! Thank you so much for coming on the journey with me and for your encouraging comments. Couldn't have done it without you. Muah!

  2. I like the way you have woven the musical metaphor into your lines. The oxymoron at the beginning of stanza 2, were quick to catch my eye.

    1. Thanks, Madeleine. To be honest, I half expected myself to throw in the towel half way through. I surprised myself that I didn't. I'm really pleased that I kept up with the task the whole way through.

    1. Much appreciated, Turtlememoir. Some of the poems earlier on in the month were quite heavy so I wanted to end on a much lighter, positive note.

    1. Thanks, Fred. Played around with that particular sentence and the stanza before, to get it right - so I'm pleased you like it.

      NaPoWriMo - Hope you've had fun visiting and reading lots of blogs like I did.

  10. It reads like soft raindrops... gentle and nourishing. Thirty-one poems in Thirty days is quite an accomplishment!

    1. Cheers, Margaret. I've learnt so much about myself as a poet/writer in the last 30 days than I did in the last two years. I guess that says a lot about what impact the project has had on my development.

    2. Don't stop. I'm not saying a poem a day, sometimes poems need to sit and be reexamined. But, participate in challenge prompts and read others and you will grow so much! I know I have. :)

  17. This made quite an impression on me -

    Particularly:-

    imprint long after DNA linger on walls...
    though I'm not sure why this line especially.
