Finding a Poem in Nature

Hope flows freely when you slow down to enjoy life with a new lens!


Being one with nature- 
a rite of spring,
a seasonal delight
connecting human lives,
channeling peaceful living,
Being one with nature-
a restorative practice
flowing from Mother Earth
nurturing natural life
from seed to fruition.

Being one with nature encourages active conversation about gardening and joyful living. In May, my SpiritChat community led by Kumud Ajmani enjoyed a fruitful Twitter conversation on Gardening and Joy. I participated and created a found poem from snippets of the discussion (see above).

My spring garden is on my mind because it not only blossomed into a beautiful summer one but it inspires me to write.


Today, Poetry Friday is hosted by Tricia Stohr-Hunt at her blog, The Miss Rumphius Effect. Tricia created a wonderful poem, Roller Coasters Over Fifty, that was written in response to a writing challenge from her Poetry Sisters.
