I have been following a blog by C.B. Wentworth for years now, they were the first blog I revisited when I decided to give my creative writing and poetry a try. They are doing a Poem a Day challenge run by Writers Digest and I decided to give it a try, without the deadlines but I have one for today, so we’ll just see how this goes.
A gentle walk at the bird reserve
by the woodland and the lake
To hear the birds a calling
So calming to the soul
To see the sunlight catching on the water
Its rippling sound at the waters edge
Like a soothing balm, it brings calm
Sitting in the shade of a tree, on a summers day
Feeling a cool breeze through the leaves
The sound of the leaves in the gentle wind
The coolness of the shad ow of the tree
A wonderful place to be,
Sheltered beneath the canopy
Earyl misty mornings,, hearing birds call in the gloom
Sunlight breaking the mist, making the dew sparkle on the grass
Looks like diamonds all around
The expectant day, just beginning, full of promise.
A cosy blanket, wrapped around me in the chair
Snuggled up with toast and tea
Perhaps warming soup and a book
Warm hands, warm feet
Each season brings different ways to be
Soothed and calmed in and by nature
Perhaps peace can be found, given time.
Be gentle with me, I’m new at this poetry, creative writing lark. My dyslexia also meant I struggled with English a lot at school so nouns, verbs etc are all lost on me, I just write from the heart, the sounds of my soul borne on paper.
Thanks for reading, see you soon
