Grass

Feeling lonely now
Just me here
and
a billion blades of grass all singing my name.

Still wondering how
Just me here
and
a million rays of autumn are lighting my thoughts.

Stood beneath this bough
Just me here
and
a thousand leaves of trees all rustling in my ears.

Fields await the plough
Just me here
and
a hundred birds of the woodland are hiding from my eyes.

Clouds gather on the brow
Just me here
and
a small herd of Roe deer all startled at my surprise.

Still smiling now
Just me here
on
this crowded planet so oblivious to my presence.

  1. This reflects so well this impression nature often leaves: We feel as a part of it, but it doesn’t care. The nature of nature šŸ˜‰ But we won’t let you fall into oblivion : )

  2. Very tranquil and solemn. Wonderful expression:

    “Still smiling now
    Just me here
    on
    this crowded planet so oblivious to my presence.”

    Thanks for this controlled exposure to your poetic skills.

  3. I really like the structure of the verses and the words used are beautifully put together.

    Reminds me of a Pablo Neruda poem, “Keeping Quiet”, really excellent work.

    Great poem.

    • Thank you so much for such a lovely comment!

      Sometimes I get disheartened feeling my poetry isn’t good enough, but comments like yours make sharing worth while!

      Abi šŸ™‚
