leaves flickering in the breeze
filter the light with moving speckles.
Glistening blue and green
of dragonfly delight the eye
Cacophony of birdsong
tunes the ear to individual airs
A waft of flowery fragrance
scents the air as a small miracle
of light bathes fields in gold.
Scent, sight and sound restore me –
defeat my grumpy mood
CC at dVerse Poets’ pub gives us some superb examples of nature poems and asks us to take our inspiration from the natural world around us for a short poem. Nature is so often the theme of my poems, especially my “30 days of wild” in June that I was able – with some editing – to make a cento poem from bits and bobs of them.
