Theme for 2018 is a one lined quote that gives me inspiration for writing a  Poem – These quotes are copied from Goodreads.com – tag poetry.

“There is not a particle of life which does not bear poetry within it” ― Gustave Flaubert

Beauty of the Seasons

as the seasons
continue flowing by
showing balmy shades of autumn
greens to paling yellows.
Like a rainbow
through the trees.
No breeze the leaves are still,
amber sunlight falls through the trees
warming the cooling ground.
Scent, dead leaves yield
Is enriching
the ground for a new year.
After winter has recycled,
ground free of pollutions,
soil is refreshed
Time to replant
new seedlings for another year
enrich the beautiful scenery.
Birds singing overhead
courting their mate,
is everywhere.
Green thumb, face of nature,
has her solutions for everything,
another year of beauty
as the seasons
roll by.

Behrquain Poetry Form

A poem of 30 lines, a syllabic form invented by Madison Shaw, aka Arkbear on Allpoetry

2/4/6/8/6/4/2/4/6/8/6/4/2/4/6/8/6/4/2/4/6/8/6/4/2/4/6/8/6/4/2  syllables per line. Unrhymed.

Form should be centered with care given to appearance.

  1. I love the shape and rhythm of that kind of poetry. It is a beautiful read out loud. I wonder why in my email – since I follow your blog – the poem was centered beautifully but on the reader view through WordPress it is left justified? The centered poem is so pretty! I’m going to try a stab at it before October is out. Hasn’t this been such a fun month!!!
