“She told me I need therapy. I told her I write poetry.” — Perry Poetry
Here we are, rooted in our current season but not without branches to stretch out and see what else can be found. We might even find wings up there if we keep exploring.
5 Short Nature Poems, Perfect for Embracing This Season
Vines drip their own
Brand of honey.
They crawl and rise and
Make it look like a grand dance.
Weaving over time their own
Kind of love.
They play, in their own time.
To you, they are just vines.
To the heart, even they are
Happy to see you smile.
— I see you
Wake up to this moment.
It will awaken the flowers
Your busy mind has
Forgotten to see,
Stretch your vision to include
Every busy bee and
Heighten every sense with which
You ought to breathe.
— Wake up
Stay and feed the soil.
Don’t just grab the fruit.
Empty your mind of everything and feel
Who you are—
Not just blossoms and beauty, but
Darkness and dirt too.
— Being whole
In order to grow,
You must give up the struggle
To remain the same.
In order to embrace this season that you’re in,
Whether pleasure or pain,
It is time again to come home to
Where your heart’s honesty has been laid.
If you want to live in wholeness,
You will not avoid what life has to offer.
Blessed or wretched,
You must love better.
Giving and receiving,
Loss and gain,
Sunshine and treacherous rainstorms—
Life is everything.
Learn how to love as openly,
As boldly and breathtakingly
As life does for you.
— Loving, due to living
When the leaves dance, and
A new wind blows;
When the birds sing, and
A new song is composed;
When deep within the rivers of my soul
I begin to hear the approaching sea,
I pause and bask in sweet unity.
I cannot bear but to see
The unshakeable connection to
Everything around me.
— New but old

I’m a hobby photographer with a love of nature and macro photography. I’m building a website called Enchanted Prairie and I’d love to post one of your poems. I would obviously credit you and link the poem to your page. Are you ok with that? The website isn’t quite ready for public eyes but you can see my work on instagram at https://www.instagram.com/amy_williams_photography/
I am enjoying your blog. Have a good day.
