Reflections

Poetry in (E)motion

Hello my lovely readers & happy Saturday to you!

Today isn’t my typical day to post but I’ve been in a canning flurry lately. The garden and produce stands are booming! Gotta take advantage of it 😉

You guys seem to love the poems I share so I thought I’d share a recent one. It’s hot off the press haha just scribbled it down last night.

This poem expresses a lot of what I’ve been feeling lately as a mother and just as a woman in general. In this I’ve folded in several topics. Work ethic, time, serving others and confidence are the themes here.

In spite of the business of life, I am content and I am happy just being me.

 

Sugar and Bliss

Spin

Spin dear spider

Spin sure

And tell me how

You spin

And never tire

Never cross

Your eyes.

 

Be aware of the lies.

 

wood-mouse-823796

 

Run, run

Run

Little mouse.

Chase your tail.

Hurry, scurry.

How can you

Run

Without the hum

The tick and the tock

Of a runaway

Clock

 

Run, telling clock. Away.

 

chaffinch-832736

 

Sing

Oh do

Sing

Sweet little

Bird

Warble and tweet

Hop on those

Feet

Fill the air

With your sweetness.

Give back

And take less.

Such a song you sing

 

A song of love.

 

butterfly-1553031

 

Dream big

Little butterfly.

Delicate

In beauty

Flutter

Flutter

Soar.

Life is worth living

It’s worth living now.

Trust your wings

To take you

Where you need

To go.

Don’t answer to

No.

 

Trust your wings.

    1. Thank-you! I’ve seen so many butterflies lately…I love to write about them ☺ Dickinson is an interesting poet but I’ve always considered her work a bit dark. But maybe I haven’t read the right poems. Good to hear from you T.R. ☺

      1. I own her complete works. She has a lot of light poems as well 🙂 though now as I go through her works…I totally see what you mean!

        Written in 1890,
        God made a little Gentian
        It tried to be a rose
        And failed and all the Summer laughed
        But just before the Snows
        There rose a purple creature
        that ravished all the hill
        and Summer hid her forehead
        and mockery was still.
        The frosts were her condition
        The Tyrian would not come
        Until the North invoke it
        Creator, shall I bloom?

      2. I know she struggled with some things in her life, possibly with mental illness. Not to say that anyone with mental illness can’t be a great poet or artist and general, I’ve just wondered if it didn’t flavor her work in some way. There seems to be an absence of hope in some of her works, but I can see why others like her work. She does have talent just not particularly my cup of tea.
