Speechless #poetry

a season past where tears formed streams

cherry blossoms now burst in spring

where lightening seared a rift in oak

the vine is mending a path of hope

the winter offered barren cold

there’s feasting in our forest I’m told

voices seek two hearts to mend

harmonic tones a heavenly blend

dawn’s release of sun to sky

a tear emerges from my eye

all the words that will ever be

cannot express nature’s beauty

 

 

The poet’s united prompt for the day is Enlightenment. How are you enlightened?

(If you click the dove, she looks up close and personal)

Beautiful notes

raindrops trip over the tune

storm passes

The last prompt for Carpe Diem’s short Vision Quest series is Deep Silence. What does Deep Silence prompt in your senses???

Voyeur of the Forest #photography #poem

trees breathe life

spring gives birth to nature

a constant song

*

mesmerized I sit

doe cares for her speckled young

my backyard

tree haiku

 

Older than the trees

each year new life

ancient wisdom

Thanks to Managua Gunn who is ghost writing for Carpe Diem today.

He speaks of the forest, the life and healing there and asks that we let the forest inspire our writing.

I am fortunate to each day be inspired by the forest in my back yard.

(I spent Saturday morning watching two young very speckled fawn skipping about the back, while the mother took a snooze.)

What does the forest inspire in your creative spirit???

won’t you come and see
loneliness? Just one leaf
from the kiri tree


Cedar umbrellas, off
to Mount Yoshimo for
the cherry blossoms

and thank you for the words of Basho timeless in meaning and inspiration…

 

Reflect upon Thanks #poetry #photography

Here is the Verse First Prompt:

WALK IN GRATITUDE

Today’s is another simple prompt. Take a walk. On that walk, observe your surroundings with an eye of gratitude. When you return to your writing-table, quickly write down your observations, then refine them; burn away the dross to reveal a poem that will imbue your readers with gratitude, too.
Look out
upon this bare world
cold, snow etched horizon
life stripped by season’s storm
where hides the sun?
*
 I sit in reflection
scanning my forest
I walk in this dream
never to awaken
to cold cruelty again
*
I watch life
it smiles at me
So Thankful
to have lived
to see this day
fall's creatures
To each of you  I wish hope for a time of Thanksgiving. Enjoy time to spend in warmth with friends and family.

square #word #photography #poetry

What you ask can fit inside a square?

ck mate

a king stately or unaware

colorful art. it beckons, you stare

forest beyond the patio there

window2

sunshine captured in the glass sans glare

A museum, a game, animals, that which the sky contains all these to share

all neatly contained in a square

Thanks to Sue at A word A week challenge for her photo prompt the square

Wild Weekly Photo Challenge – The Forest #photography

wood dragon

You may think you can see my world that the wood dragon guards

winter woods

but you cannot know of the beast who stalks in its cold

blue dawn photo rendering

your eye distracted by blue horizons at dawn

vibrant fall

colors captivate you and you fail to hear the distant snarls

Ripples of Life

already mesmirized in the reflection of the lady’s wooded pool

amber glow

you fail to see the true light

beware the world beyond the gate – My World!

I’m participating in this weeks <a href=”http://letsbewild.com/photo-challenge/wild-weekly-photo-challenge-34-the-forest/“>Lets Be Wild Photo Challenge</a> This week’s challenge is the Forest. Check out the beautiful photography!

The Forest or the Trees? #wordpress #dailypost #poetry #photography

When you gaze out your window (literally or figuratively) do you see the forest or the trees????

three rivers canvas

Run my fingertips through mossy hair

flick water drop rainbows toward the sky

inhale your loamy essence

run my hands over your rocky surfaces

grasp the prisms of  sunlight

listen to your voice as you rush by

…and all the time long to be a tree by your banks

The question above is the prompt for the Daily Post at WordPress. What do you see????

Photography: “Three Rivers for canvas” copyright L. Moon 2012. This photo I gave an oil painting rendering (using paint.net) to see what it would look like on a canvas. Nature’s textures are so pronounced.
