Nature is my Muse

Today at d’Verse, Ingrid asked us to write a poem describing our muse. In the past poets were often inspired by a person who stimulated their imagination and brought life to their poems. My muse is Nature. One thing I enjoy as much as writing is getting a good nature shot. The bees and butterflies, birds and flowers all feed into my poetry in some way. When my mind goes dry, I can always count on my photo files to get my juices flowing.

Inspiration flows

from Nature’s muse to my thoughts

  1. Beautifully expressed, Dwight! I can see that in your poetry how nature is your muse. I find inspiration from people, which is funny because that does have the potential to get dull. Nature, however, there is always something new about it to see. Always something new to take from it or even a different way to look at life from it, it just offers a new perspective and it is often refreshing and vibrant. Love the photography as well! ❤ ❤

  3. I completely agree! And I was happy to learn a few years ago that one of my favorite songwriters, Antonio Carlos Jobim, also derived much of his inspiration from spending time in the natural world. Please keep your beautiful photos and poems coming!

    • Thank you so much Will. I think one would have to be blind not to be inspired by the natural world around us. Makes me think of Appalachian Spring! I will try to keep them coming. So glad you enjoy them!
