L. B. Mek

Invitation, to fireworks: of fireflies



Mother Nature frees - her inhibition’s, breeze

swaying gracefully, with each whispered whimsy


her trumpet clouds – declare, loud-n-proud

foreshock of anticipation – pulsating, invitingly


tremors of expectant crescendo, undeniable

day of your birth, unmistakable;


from dawn’s, blank-page horizons of opportunity

till midnight’s, spotlight comforting-stars of serenity


a weeklong full-moon, hope-drunk party

welcoming, every birthstone colour: equally


Sakura petals celebrating, out-of-season blooming

cherished days, serenaded - by laughter’s harmony

      If not perfection I wouldn't know what is! And a very happy birthday to ed. Loved your title with every last line of imagery L.B as I always do.

      • L. B. Mek

        how very kind, always such a warm and reassuring feeling
        to read one of your overtly generous comments
        dear Poetess, thank you!
        (may I never know the dull monotones, of perfection
        always, do I wish
        to be striving, searching: hoping
        that something better - awaits
        that next syllable of poetic ink's
        daredevil, scuba diving! lol)

                lol, I have a go-to talent agency
                'google search',
                genuinely think witnessing a Sakura tree blossom
                is one of Nature's
                exquisitely delicate scenes: of untainted beauty...
                so glad you enjoyed the read Jerry, thank you!

                • L. B. Mek

                  you've just gone and made my blushing cheeks
                  match, those Sakura petal's shades of pink... lol
                  thank you my friend!
                  what an encouraging and comprehensive comment
                  you've got my poetic soul, gliding
                  with those trumpeting clouds 😳😵😁

                • SureshG

                  There’s beauty everywhere within the nature’s course of life, in birth and yes also in death, for one nurtures the other, as do your words nurture us today.

                  • L. B. Mek

                    less comment than prose, elevated
                    to poetic nuances, as worded glucose
                    fuelling my courage, to climb
                    ever higher, on those challenging
                    mountainous peaks, of Artistry's dreams..
                    (thank you! dear Poet)

                      'what, there's a flu bug, going around you say?' 😱 ... lol
                      (sorry for my silly antics, dear poet

                        • L. B. Mek

                          I blame you Andy
                          it's all those 'walking with nature' poems
                          you share, that's influenced me...
                          thank you, my friend

                          • Goldfinch60

                            Ok I’ll take the blame Mek, I have broad shoulders.
