May day expression…

I just love a May day!  Even when the weather report calls for clouds and rain!

In the poetry of heart I am off again…..

Rain captures white violets in new grass on the front lawn of May day expression!

A Veery Thrush
Sings in the woods somewhere.
On a damp Spring morning,
With showers in the air.

Up high in the evergreens,
I search for her there.
The sound of her trill
Motivates my will.

And I move from my coffee pot
Into a shower that’s hot.
Another daily routine
Off and running.
A new day brings
A song I sing
In my heart so clear.

Residing there
Is my flower chair.
And I twirl a rainbow,
When I look at the blossoms she wears.
I shall love to sit in her and bloom my hair.

To rest my feet
Among violets and grass
And lilies so fair.

I’ve finished a project.
I’ve closed a door.
The earth has helped me
Bring it to the fore.

Transition has awakened.
A new road is taken.
Out of a jungle
Of traps and confusion.

Resistance is gone,
Flowing out of illusion,
And the path I see,
Pink Destiny, lined with birch trees,
Is the path I am walking on.

I am enveloped
In a sense of wonder,
To suddenly conceive the total entirety
Of the condition I’ve been under.

I’ve made it through
The twists and turns,
And especially the land mines
From which I’ve learned
That darkness can be
Your greatest teacher.

In this May day reflection
I emerge with a bright perspective,
And that is,
Obstacles and limitations
Are bridges to wisdom
And help one create new navigation.

All I can say is thank God for that!
One realizes the value
Of perseverance and patience.
These are the gifts given.

Oh to figure out sooner than later,
That hind sight is 20/20 in our living.
My new wheels are turning
Joy in being.

    I love this stanza there’s so much wisdom and serenity in your poetry. Love the mural.

  8. Brilliant poem. The shifting of the rhyming couplets in each stanza really kept me focused on the poem, as well as giving it a unique quality that took me a while to find the soure of, very effective. A brilliant read.
