Welcome to Word Play Wednesday!
Word Play Wednesday is a weekly feature of written and spoken word poetry. I will be sharing my written and spoken word poems in addition to poems by other wonderful Poets both past and present. If you are interested in sharing some of your poetry, feel free to buzz me and we can work something out.
I hope that you enjoy reading and listening to our thoughts, feelings and rants and in many ways relate to some of them.
This week I will be sharing a poem I recently wrote. I hope you like it too.
What pleases the eyes, delights the mind and warms the heart
The sun rising over the hills,
Shifting colors from red to florid orange and bleak golden,
And then, it sets.
Sinking below the horizon,
Rivers meandering into the ocean,
Embracing each flow into its endless depths.
Water, tumbling down a mountain,
Showering onto a clear bliss-pool beneath.
Surrounded by lush green pasture.
A garden, of roses, Lilies, carnations, jasmines and sun flowers.
A butterfly, colors and art, tattooed by God on its wings.
The rains, and then a rainbow,
in all its glory,
as it spreads across the silvery sky.
A new born, on her mother’s bosom.
Hands clasped, eyes closed, peaceful.
A bride in white,
angelic, graceful, floating down the aisle.
A man in love, looking with soft eyes,
into the face of his beloved.
An old couple, holding hands.
Children playing in the rain, running, laughing, carefree.
All creation, on the day the creator looked upon it all,
and said this is good.
You and I,
and everything we think it is.
