the diamantine splendor

It’s your smile that shines so bright

Nature speaks . . .

7 Apr

Have you ever been deeply touched by a few well placed words? It happened to me. Everyone who knows me is aware of my love for nature. It’s a profound love.

It takes genuine talent to move people with few words and John Foster has got the skills. You let me know if I’m wrong after reading his poem ‘Soft Winds’. And if you enjoy his poem you can read more of his work on his blog, JOHN FOSTER.

 

Soft Winds

by John Foster

 

Nature speaks without a tongue,
and sings with her every motion.
She moves with elegance unfelt,
save for the soft winds, to whose
song the tall trees dance.

Springs Bleeding Heart

by Francine Rose Hirst

 

Spring evokes excitement.
I smell Spring.
I breathe Spring.

And yet.

Spring evokes sadness.
I remember good times.
I cry.

Spring evokes haunting.
Carefree days.
City lights at night.

Spring evokes life.
I watch as an outsider.
A hidden being.

Spring evokes love.
Too much.
I hurt.

Spring evokes passion.
Wasted.
Let me be.

Spring evokes hope.
It has no right.
Set me free.

Spring evokes kisses.
Sweet longing at night.
Mornings alone.

Spring evokes images of you.
Your life.
Shared so freely.

Spring please be over.
I can’t bare it.
Any longer.

My heart bleeds.
Spring’s joy is not mine.
This time.

What does Spring evoke for you? Do you have memories that haunt you? What is your happiest memory?
