Provisions of Mother Nature

Written for:  Poetic Asides April 2020 PAD Challenge – Day 24
Write a nature poem.

I bubble into eddying bays,
wandered lonely as a cloud
of easy wind and downy flake,
spreading sugar over lakes.
April comes in like an idiot, babbling and strewing flowers,
turning sod to violets
when the world is puddle-wonderful.

Lines from: Alfred Tennyson, William Wordsworth, Robert Frost, Ogden Nash,
Edna St. Vincent Millay, Ralph Waldo Emerson, e.e. cummings

 

About purplepeninportland

I am a freelance poet, born and bred in Brooklyn, New York. I live with my husband, John, and two charming rescue dogs–Marion Miller and Murphy. We spent eight lovely years in Portland, OR, but are now back in New York. My goal is to create and share poetry with others who write, or simply enjoy reading poetry. I hope to touch a nerve in you, and feel your sparks as well.
