Fay Slimm.

So Much



So Much.


To pluck from a wondering mind brisk words of applause
when on golden mornings
I watch a sunflower slowly lifting its stiff grass coloured
under-vest to expose more
yellow petals to a small breeze busying rose trees with
delicate brushing, I note
their flushes as nature pours droplets of nectared dew
ready for bees that scan
frilly sweet-pea for signals with gratitude's buzz-waltz 
followed by dazzle-tall
foxglove heads greeting post-night with velvety nods
and while marigold regalia
politely shakes welcome to daylight my hope to phrase
these floral awakings with
aptly penned tribute and do credit to beauty by poetry
pales with so much to see.

    Whilst sat yearning for my body to awaken to springtime 2021 you lit my mind, taking me on a wonderful Fay poetic journey around the magic of plantlife in your garden. Easily I pictured each line and savoured the moments.
    Refreshed now. I can feel spring well and truly sprung and i must away to the green of our wonderful land today to give praise.

    Such an uplifting read Fay.

    • Fay Slimm.

      I am delighted to be the cause of refreshing your mind with my little tribute to Spring my friend - - stay long with green's unfolding as it colours each day and each soul who values its urge to plant-life's opening

        We could do with more of them golden mornings. Spring is rushing by! Help!

        • Fay Slimm.

          Yes agreed dear Orchi - golden mornings are precious at this time of year. Thank you for your visit and comment on So Much.

        • Doggerel Dave

          I do admire Fay, no absorb at least, some of the meditative awareness you describe in your responses to nature, its rhythm and change even if I don’t know how to frame my reaction.
          Here, I really felt this one – I’m unable to say any more……enuf?

          • Fay Slimm.

            No need to say more Dave as I can tell you really felt nature's grand message in So Much - and that for me my dear poet-friend is amply enuf............. thanking you kindly for dropping by for a read and for leaving this encouraging comment.

            So much to see, your extremely elegant pen hand brings the glorious picture of nature to life. Beautiful. To be inspired in the beauty we see in front of us is a truly a gift from nature its self

            • Fay Slimm.

              Your comment words the feeling a poet can have on the diverseness of Nature in ever season - thank you Teddy for expressing the inspiration such contact with Nature brings to such folk as me .

            • MendedFences27

              Difficult to convey the wonderment we feel when face to face with Nature's beauty. Language does not possess apt wording for such a thrill.
              Your poem is a top notch presentation of flowering magnificence.
              It uplifts the readers spirit while describing a mornings vision. Loved it. - Phil A.

              • Fay Slimm.

                You are so right Phil - our contacts with Nature leave us poet wordless when viewing the wonderment in every season. Thanks a load for stopping by and for your generous review of So Much .

              • Jerry Reynolds

                Good poem, Fay. Spring is a time of renewed hope.

                • Fay Slimm.

                  Agreed wholeheartedly Jerry - each Springtime renews our hope that "the best is yet to come." Thank yous galore for your lovely reminder.

                  'I watch
                  a sunflower slowly lifting
                  its stiff grass coloured, under-vest
                  to expose more yellow petals
                  to a small breeze'..
                  what an immersive experience, it ease
                  to read your nature themed poetry, dear Fay
                  an absolute treasure!!!
                  thank you
