Poetry: Moments in Nature

Jun 2, 2015 | 1 comment

Read the poems like you would a sentence, stopping only at punctuation. But take time to imagine the scene.

Haiku Poem (Moments in Nature, #1)

Prisms of Jack Frost
send winter rainbows dancing
among trees and reeds

 

Haiku Poem (Moments in Nature, #2)

Golden evening rays:
like giant fireflies dancing
among the lacy pines

 

Haiku Poem: (Moments in Nature, #3)

Warm, golden sunbeams
dance on high mountain tops and
sparkle on the sea

 

Haiku Poem: (Moments in Nature, #4)

A snowy landscape
silent, on a barren branch
one male cardinal

 

Haiku Poem: (Moments in Nature, #5)

Small, determined ant
struggling with its giant load
up the fallen trunk

 

Haiku Poem: (Moments in Nature, #6)

One thin, golden ray
pierces the veil of blackness
on the stormy sea

 

Haiku Poem: (Moments in Nature, #7)

Tireless, drifting sands
exposing some secrets while
covering others

 

Haiku Poem: (Moments in Nature, #8:
Spider

Relentless weaver:
forever repairing that
which its prey destroyed

 

Haiku Poem: (Moments in Nature, #9)

One silver flower
spotlighted in the darkness
by a thin moonbeam

 

Haiku Poem: (Moments in Nature, #10)

Gulping greedily
insatiable deserts
devour the rain

 

Haiku Poem: (Moments in Nature, #11)

Amid the charred forest
a budding fern at the base
of a hollowed pine

 

Haiku Poem: (Moments in Nature, #12)

Bright orange ladybug
on the white lily petal
in the emerald pond

 

Haiku Poem: (Moments in Nature, #13):
Blue Heron on the  Lake

Majestic gray fowl
heavy wings slicing the air
deep, echoing cry

 

Haiku Poem: (Moments in Nature, #14:
Blue Heron in our Fish Pond

Wily predator
stalking our beautiful fish.
Leave us, Blue Heron!

    The lines are beautifully written, easy to picture and feel. What a wonderful way to pause and reflect on God’s creation. My favorite from Moments in Nature is #25.
