Nature’s Pilgrim.



Whispers from the hill,
Caress my will.

Colorful leaf,
Sooths and heals.

Drops of rain,
Excites my vein.

Nature’s lair,
Laze with care.

Willows quirk,
My heart berserk.

Unexpected breeze,
Calls for peace.

Weekend retreat,
Turns pilgrim’s treat.

Some of the verses are quite, quite lovely, Ul. I particularly like the first three, though, sorry, you might want to change your plural to leaf in the second (so that it goes with sooths and heals).

UL said...

Thank you Jo, will do that right away. No need to apologize, improvement is what I am aiming for.

Drops of rain is perfect for today--and the whole poem invokes a feeling of fall with Thanksgiving coming that I usually feel this time of year but don't as most leaves are just dying

I like how this one is so filled to the brim with the essence of fall. It is just starting to get cold where I live, Chicago, and it feels like I have been waiting forever for this season.

Beauty poem. Perfect for this time of year. The changing of the leaves and the crispness in the air do inspire.

I'm a summer person, myself, but your poem suggests I reconsider! Very nice post!

This made me want to take a nap. And I mean that in the best possible way :) The whole thing was soothing and peaceful.

Thank you for the comments.

The replica of fall in your poem is well portrayed. The last line makes me long for Thanksgiving. Thanks for sharing.

Have a nice day.
