As Ponds Reflect

As Ponds Reflect

As ponds reflect

The trees and sky

So do we

Reflect

People and places

Around and

Held

Within ourselves.

===================

More #WATWB coming soon!

Slow Walk In The Sun

Slow Walk in the Sun

Slow walk

In the sun.

How simple pleasures

Can be

Such fun.

Basking in the radiance

Of the sun dance

After a day of rain.

It’s time to chance

The breeze in the trees

Sounds that please

An attuned ear.

We hear:

Panting of dogs

Cyclists passing logs

Children at play

On a zephyr teased day.

After the showers

The storms in the hours

Of previous days

As birds gently laze

On the pond

At wetlands

The sun on their plumes

In these days of spring blooms.

Simon C.J. Falk 19 November 2017

More We Are The World #WATWB coming soon. Stay tuned!

Blossoms in Sight

Blossoms in Sight


Blossoms in sight

Covered by cloud

With a tinge of light

Inviting you to come

From winter

To spring

Where the birds will

Sing a song

As we long

For a moment of peace

Today.

Blossoms are a way

For us to hope.

We Tread Heavily Upon The Earth


We Tread Heavily Upon The Earth
After having frightened birds in a field.

 

We tread heavily

Upon the earth

[and asphalt, concrete or

whatever we construct

To hide our feet

From natures touch].

And

Our footfalls frighten

Fauna

In our wake.

We mistake

Our smallness

Of size

Among many creatures,

For insignificant impact.

How wrong we are.

Our lands, skies, seas

Bear the scars,

Of our excesses.

And, in the recesses

Of our overactive brains,

There are gains,

When we become

More aware,

Of where

We fit

In the cosmos.

Yes,

We have

A place,

But it is not ours

To erase

The good entrusted to our care.

For we are here

To share.

And

To leave

This place

Better

For us

Having been

There.

Want to help the world be the better for us having been here.  We Are The World Blogfest posts on the final Friday of each month.  More about it here.

Eluded Pleasant Scent

Eluded Pleasant Scent

 

Technology may

Capture,

In Pod and pixel,

The stunning sight,

Of brilliant day

And social night.

Sound,

It may record,

That we may pin it

To a board,

Or playlists

In our caches.

But,

The bulging bytes,

Cannot control,

A pleasant scent upon

A stroll,

A flowering tree

That comes to me

Oh, that pleasing scent

Held naturally!

To a Magpie And…

To a Magpie And…

 

 

Greetings, Magpie!

What news across the wing?

What song have you to sing,

To me

That may

Set us

A little more free

To be

In this moment

Of reverie?

I see

You sparkle

In the eye,

And, as I spy,

The warm sun

In the sky

Shines radiant beams,

Filling us with dreams,

And,

It seems,

With enthusiasm

That pulses

Into muscles,

As we traverse

This wooded scene.

Where have I been?

Where in the days

and weeks

Oh, feathered friend?

It seemed, my life

It did

Tend towards

Other ‘heady’ pursuits,

That called

For recruits,

To their so-called

Important ways.

Oh, those days,

Are gone.

And,

Feathered friend,

Now it seems

I send

My energies

In other ways

On these

Sunny afternoon

Days.

Now,

I give praise!

As I, falteringly,

Put into phrase

This afternoon

Sunlit splendour.

Morning Motoring in the Mind and Moment

Morning Motoring in the Mind and Moment

 

While driving early this morn

A familiar sight emerged again,

In the car and

In the mind.

The sun shone,

A scene unveiled,

But

The mind clattered on

In its own

Gobbledy-gook and dumblety-dum

Gibbery-gibberish and bumbley-bum of

Thoughts-fears-events-memories-ideas-blah!

Then,

From my peripheral vision,

A vista formed

Upon the retina

Of the eye

And soul:

A thin veil of mist

Rested,

Like a gentle caress,

Upon the land.

Embracing trees

In its delicate fold,

Meeting the dew-damp earth,

Mist held

Suspense

Of air

And presence too,

As I gaped upon

What I saw

And,

For those minute moments,

The monotony of mind machinations

   Were stilled,

         Stopped,

               Present,

To the now,

And the scene

On the way.

Rain Fell On An Autumn Eve

Rain Fell On An Autumn Eve

Rain fell

On an autumn eve,

In a sunny shower,

Of sound

And light,

That might

Wet the ground

A little,

And refresh

The gardens

For a time.

Gentle, it was,

As is

The remaining

Scent,

Sneaking up

Into the nostrils,

To tantalise us

With the new

bounty

From above.

The #Sun Rises

The Sun Rises

risingsuntemora08012017

The Sun Rises

The sun rises,

Dawning

A new day.

The night shadows

Recede,

Then pass away.

What hopes arise

Afresh

On this morn?

What adventures

Begin

From the refulgent dawn?

 

Simon C.J Falk 8 January 2017

A Moment

A Moment
A moment

In time

Seeing

The water droplets 

Falling

On the pathway.

Pathway to peace

A moment away

From the tenuous

The time-poor

The manifold stuff

Of life.

A simple sprinkler

For the lawn

Leaves us a moment

Of bounty.
