Loving Nature

The sun shone

Up with a yellow tone

I planted some seeds

Between the green weeds

Sure enough I was

To water them though

I had to carry through

A picky grass hedge

My hands grew tired

My legs wounded

But still I cared

With my wounded heart

As two days passed

There came a green spot

With tiny leaves

As soft as fur

Yes! They were those

That I cared for so long

They have changed lot

From a seed to a plant

I gathered some twigs

And made a beautiful fence

So they were safe

Deep in my heart

Soon I saw myself in vain

I was locked up

My heart too was locked

With thorns all over

A week passed by

Then passed a month

My heart sang down

In my dry tears

Those strange days

Are over once again

I ran out with joy

But my mind was still lost

Then I passed the hedge

I saw some bright

Between the grass

With surprise I looked

Oh! It was my seed

Not the seed

Oh! It had grown

Up saw with a flower

This is nature’s magic

No, its nature’s love

So should you care

Hi Susan :)

Your creative writing is excellent.

The amount of hard work that goes into gardening and to get a flower bloom, the suspense and frustration of the gardener and the surprise gift of nature are very well portrayed through simple, easy to understand words.

It goes to show that efforts,patience and perseverance will always be rewarded in the end. This, I think, is the moral of the poem.

Many, many thanks for sharing.

Have a great day :)

This is lovely!
When the sprout arrives in bloom it echoes the hope offered in planting!

When we experience sorrow in separation, there is sincere joy of restoration.

Thank you for sharing the song of your heart with mine!
