Mayโ€™s magic

L. B. Mek




Spring’s, April showers 


Summer’s June furnace


There’s a season of quaintness 

and blink-n-miss, deftness 

blessed by subtle wondrousness 


it’s a season I term: 

May’s, morning magnificence!


Glimmering notes as-if from a golden Harp

Graceful tones of tranquil cloud-like rays of sunshine

Glide breezily between slick verdure leaves



eyes and nourishing embattled heart’s 

and for those rare seconds or minutes


we take note and commune with nature

a part of us becomes the embodiment 


of empowered, calmness



all is now

all is Tao

all is dow…


Before, we breathe


Sigh, lengthily and expunge


Months, of our accumulated 

winter’s, weariness 


and just like that, we grasp

at a hovering smile

look again to treasure

Gaia’s gift

switch gears, back 

to our hustle and bustle 

of truly cherished, existence!

    I love the way you write about the seasons, and I imagine....

    • L. B. Mek

      what wonderful words to gift me, dear Poet
      for what else does poetry exist, for
      than to lure each other's imaginations
      in-to fields and images
      of endless, possibilities...
      thank you! so glad you liked it

    • Paul Bell

      Must admit, the rain was hotter than usual when I went for a run this morning. May is the pointer to the rest of the year, and I'm thinking months of glorious sunshine to look forward to. Plus, the sun gets us all smiling, and living in Britain, you need a smile.

      • L. B. Mek

        a much needed break
        from that depressing, sandwich grey
        stuck between pavement
        and petulantly overcast, sky...
        glad you enjoyed the read, my friend
        thank you!

      • Rocky Lagou

        This is glorius L.B. Mek. I will admit, you're a spledor. I adore your poetry, your words, so perfumed with passion and love.

        • L. B. Mek

          I'm just blessed such forgiving eyes
          are drawn to my humble scribbles
          everything else, is just poetic 'magic'
          doing its thing.. lol
          thank you!
          for such encouraging words, dear Poet
          I'll do my best to earn them, eventually

        • GON

          i love the playfulness of the meter here, very cool write

          • L. B. Mek

            oh, that's just awesome!
            I was trying to imbue
            a sense of whimsical lightness
            to the feel of the read
            without overburdening readers
            with technical cues and clues..
            so glad you read my feeble effort at such a technical level
            thank you! how very kind, dear Poet

          • Goldfinch60

            Fine words Mek about a fine time of the year.


            • L. B. Mek

              yup, a fine time indeed
              thank you, Andy

            • Neville

              • L. B. Mek

                thunderbirds are GO!
                fun, without that safety harness
                of pre-emptive deliberation
                have at it, my cherished friend

              • SureshG

                We long for Spring, after a harsh Winter, and the coolness of Autumn, having survived the heat of Summer, knowing that we need them all to feel alive, as your cherished words so poetically stated.

                • L. B. Mek

                  what a lovely wording of my sentiments for this scribble
                  only fully realised, simply beautiful..
                  thank you! dear Poet:
                  'We long for Spring, after
                  a harsh Winter,

                  I had so much fun reading this. May is in my opinion the very best month (it's my birthday month) and it is that bridge between.
                  I liked how you used different schemed and patterns throughout; it created a unique rhythm that served the month of May well ๐Ÿ™‚

                  • L. B. Mek

                    Happy Birthday! dear poet
                    yeah, just wanted to show May
                    some love
                    it sometimes can get overlooked, unfairly..
                    hope you have a great year ahead, cheers

                    • LMTobin

                      Thank you ๐Ÿ™‚

                      That can only be described as melifluous. And the music of Helene Smith, that brought it to a whole new level. Reminded me somehow of that old Sidney Pottier film To Sir With Love, somehow. Random, but there. thanks L.B. for sharing. /Rik.

                      • L. B. Mek

                        Love that film, and yes
                        even if it is in, black n white
                        as he's walking through the market
                        or leisurely, contemplatively
                        going down those school entrance, steps
                        I imagine May's, soothing sky
                        his and those children's
                        (thank you! dear Poet
                        for gifting me that imagery
                        and a cherished new perspective
                        on my humble, scribble)

                        • crypticbard

                          Oh, you just reminded me. In watching that film I always saw (or must've imagined) the buses and fruit in colour. How odd but true. Perhaps they would make a colourised version of the original. Curious to find out if it would change the impact of it.

                        • John Prophet

                          Great writing kind poet. I like May, itโ€™s my birth month. May 18th me and Mount St. Helens ๐ŸŽ‚๐Ÿ˜‰

                          • L. B. Mek

                            oh thank you for sharing
                            and letting me celebrate with you
                            Happy Birthday, dear Poet

                            Such calming and glorious words
                            "Glimmering notes as-if from a golden Harp
                            Graceful tones of tranquil cloud-like rays of sunshine
                            Glide breezily between slick verdure leaves"
                            The tone of this poem sets one in the month of May with joyous weather whether one is in the Northern or Southern hemispheres.
