Ode To ‘Mother’Creator ©
Not only isit a marvelous happen chance in being able to have ‘shares’ in Mother Nature’sflora creations 'first hand'---
But, we arethen granted to sit before her, these ‘set tables’….
She, as our‘hostess’ serves ‘up’ an endless canvasing ‘kaleidoscope’ set for our eyes only!
She temptsus again and again, into a fevered ‘hunger-fest’ to (pig-out) by and they are verymuch ‘ready’ with such ‘food for thought’!
She has intuitively displayed her indulgent ‘realm’to overrun our 'minds' eye….
We are prearrangedto touch, taste/smell and become a convert---
It is; astrue, loyal, ‘voyeurs’ we now give our undivided attendance, when we are allinvited to her 'seasoning’ assemblies….
Theirwholeness is made perfect, even into their ‘finally’ timed performances!
Her use andgift with bright shades and ‘tonal’ multi-folding colours complements more herofferings---
Whether, itis in her fauna show of velvety, satin and silky petal- flowers spendingtitillating fragrances….
Or, by useof her seasonally ‘varying’ cycles in weather modes; she always will spend all herwonderment and excitement towards her spectacular works!
Her numerous‘paint-box’ colours with their different scents and shaded colours are craftedto allure us feverishly into inventive madness acts---
Just likethe moments when a (newly) box of crayons first opens up and invitingly nudgesthe painter and writer in 'us’ to recreate our own bountiful pictures withworded colour and paints….
Thus withour 'first hand' wonder/mental experience “Mother’, has never grifted, (aquestionable) blank canvas to work upon!
We are agrowing world-wide nature loving group, dabbling our time away ‘amongst’ her ecospheres---
We have also‘gifted’; as well out our exhibited works….
Our own ‘piece-meals’ are proudly admired andprofitably ‘feasted’ upon!
Many wonderfulinvites are sent out to for all to attend our (tabled smorgasbords) ---
‘Mother’,must be as proud and pleased when taking note, of all the vast, interpretationaland varied (personal) endeavoured styles made in her likeness….
We have been ‘qualified’ in her stead, to such‘artistry’ freedoms!
We have been‘branded’ her slaves; as only a true slave driver can do---
We are meantto go through with our own ‘humbling’ efforts….
Our need anddesire to please and honour her great gifts with these our gifts aresurmountable!
Ourenthusiasm to share our ‘Mother Nurtured’ talents among one and all to salivateand savour, is indeed a two-fold gift and made much more---
We can onlyhold her responsible for our inspirational madness every day, days in and daysout throughout time….
MotherNature, we thank you for the power you have given us again, and again and againto learn, create and live in your world.
We areindeed time keepers and guardians to your ‘star studded garden!
My writer’smind holds ‘never’ enough words to paint your magnificence---
There arenot enough means to ever do you justice….
Ourword/plays and artfull paintings are but a ‘stitch’ to your ‘dressed’canvases!

Mother Nature's is my inspiration as well and what ever happens on any given day that sticks in my mind I sit down and write words, sometimes good sometimes not so good. Main thing is to have ago. Your Ode is thoughtful with lots of big words but you should take a little more care with your spacing.
I also wrote a poem on Mother Nature have a read on way2gokev page.
Cheers and keep the words flowing.

Thanks for the comments and reply. I will take note of what you noted about my writing. Perhaps I do use too many big words and loose myself in the spacing. I think I know what you are saying but not too sure on full meaning of spacing when writing poetry. New to this phraseing Please explain if you will if you have the time to get back to me on this. Thanks for caring.....didee

Hi Diane, Mother Nature is true inspiration & poetry herself!


I am still developing my technique as poet, so am no pro!
I too tend to over write too much per line, - & I'm told too many ideas cloud the digestion of reader...

& i also pen unnecessary double description... - so after completion of the writing piece, i weed out unnecessary description & words - which by doing so, will still allow my conveyed idea/ point to stand with the edit... e.g. " Line 1 - happen chance... it conveys the same improbability...

In my meagre capacity, i would suggest to just shave off some of the word clutter per idea as it would add more rhythm & convey more clearly




All the best with your writing!

Regards, Fay

What inspires me to write poetry is simply a love of words. I like to play with words, to shape them into a new form, a new thing. I really don't have much to say but I'm always looking to turn a phrase.
