The Wisdom of the Breeze

I wanted to write of nature: the clouds, the birds, the gurgling creek. But the words never felt quite right. The trees were lush with their summer leaves, except I felt the description didn't do them justice. The grass was wet with fresh dew, the squirrels were prancing about... why couldn't I come up with something? Ink from my quill soon dried up and so I moved onto pencils. They were fine for awhile, but I kept breaking them out of frustration. 'Twas a poet that wanted so bad to curse the beautiful day for not giving him his desires. But at last the wise and ancient breeze came rolling in... with a little something different to say...

these pages were blown
into the sky of unknown -
I waved them goodbye

    This was incredible! Looks like you found a way to describe the nature perfectly...in your Own words which matter the most. Good job!

    I don't write a lot about nature (aside from haiku)... but I wanted to express how my words CAN'T do nature justice... thus the breezing blowing away my attempts... lol. Thanks again for being a super fan!

    We all ask if our words do justice for nature, not an easy one that, I like the way nature answered your question lol. Take care, Richard

    A girl on a different site once told me "Nature doesn't need our poetry. It's our poetry that needs nature!". I always appreciate your support!
