Poetry: Moments in Nature

1) Prisms of Jack Frost

send winter rainbows dancing

among trees and reeds

 

2) Golden evening rays:

like giant fireflies dancing

among the lacy pines

 

3) Warm, golden sunbeams

dance on high mountain tops and

sparkle on the sea

 

4) A snowy landscape

silent, on a barren branch

one male cardinal

 

5) Small, determined ant

struggling with its giant load

up the fallen trunk

 

6) One thin, golden ray

pierces the veil of blackness

on the stormy sea

 

7) Tireless, drifting sands

exposing some secrets while

covering others

 

8) Spider

Relentless weaver:

forever repairing that

which its prey destroyed

 

9) One silver flower

spotlighted in the darkness

by a thin moonbeam

 

10) Gulping greedily

insatiable deserts

devour the rain

 

11) Amid the charred forest

a budding fern at the base

of a hollowed pine

 

12) Bright orange ladybug

spots the white lily petal

in the emerald pond

 

13) Blue Heron on the Lake

Majestic gray fowl

heavy wings slicing the air

deep, echoing cry

 

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.
