The Garden~OctPoWriMo Day 23~Mirrored Refrain

Many Hues
Many Hues

Many hues in riotous harmony

Creating beauty for all around

Joyously growing and spreading cheer

Nature in color surely abounds


Variety adds to the true unity

Making togetherness so very dear

Nature in color surely abounds

Joyously growing and spreading cheer


Breezes blow spreading the seeds

Beauty can be found all around

Joyously growing and spreading cheer

Nature in color surely abounds

The Prompt:

“A Drop in the Ocean

And now it’s time to return to anarchy and break my streak of form prompts! Some of you are cheering, I feel it already.

Yūgen is a Japanese word pertaining to a profound awareness of the universe which evokes feelings that are inexplicably deep and too mysterious for words.

Anyways today I’m thinking about the greatness and smallness of things in comparison to each other. Also about how small things fit as pieces to a whole.

It’s all around, forest fires start from sparks, oceans are made of water drops. (There I go again with my element loving) but look around and take a moment to observe how the clothes you wear are made of tiny threats and the vastness of the sky. Try to count some of the billions of stars outside at night and realize that most of those are bigger than the sun, and there’s SO many of them. But you’re not just this tiny speck in space, you are a beautiful combination of tiny pieces of matter put together in a truly unique way.

Today I encourage you to think about those things as you write your poem of the day.

But of course, as always, this is just a friendly suggestion.”~Beverly Tan

I have been writing all my life but for the most part, it has been a secret. My parents did not believe writing was a good way to earn money so I hid my poems. Then one day, I wanted to comment on an essay that a friend had written and found myself with a blog. That quiet whisper inside said, "You can write your poetry and no one will ever know.". I knew nothing of followers and the like at that time. So, here I am trying to learn my craft and enjoying every moment of it. My personal details are, I'm 57, married for 39 years, have one grown son who is God's gift to us and last but not least at all, I'm a Baha'i which basically means that I love all humanity.
