All the world around me glows

Atop trees red leaves whisper

As birds sing sweet lullabies

Arias unique to each

Ants build hills under my feet

Albatross soars high above

Azure blue skies call me home

  1. Amazing, indeed! The beauty of your pleide is that it is not the least bit contrived as it sings a morning song. I read it for its content and imagery and was not caught by the repeated A nor the syllabic count. But then, rereading it with the definition in mind, I was doubly amazed at how beautifully you pulled it off, Dwight. What a gift! Thank you for sharing. Makes me wanna try it. Happy Thanksgiving, {{{Dwight}}}. Have an AMAZING day !

    • Thanks Jan! I really appreciate your kind affirmation. I enjoy doing the syllabification in poems. It is a fun challenge. This one was a first for me. I am glad you enjoyed the poem for what it is also. That means a lot to me.

  2. That is a beautiful photo, on my walk the other day I came across one beautiful maple leaf on the ground. I wondered which tree it has fallen from as they were all barren. An amazing poem and photo.

    The ant hill made me think of my time in Florida with fire ants…strange how memories pop in..just don’t let those ants crawl up you leg.

  3. You paint the picture of a very beautiful world through that poem Dwight, reminds me of Pippa’s song by Robert Browning. Simple and beautiful, feels so good to read at a time when all’s not right with the world. Nature’s at its vibrant best due to the pandemic interlude though.
    And the picture is brilliant as usual πŸ’–
