So Much

Fay Slimm.



So Much.


To pluck from a sparkling dawn brisk words of applause
when on golden mornings
I watch a sunflower slowly lifting its ruff-tight corsetted
under vest of nectared
yellow while nature pours forth droplets of insect food   
on awakening blooms,               
when bent rosebuds loaded in dew for bees  straighten 
and marigold faces
politely shake welcome to morning  my hope to quill
these floral blessings  with
adequate words which  do credit to beauty by poetry
pales with so much to see.

    Yes, I'm finding out a lot. I never knew so much happened at dawn, but I know now from this fine write Fay.

    • Fay Slimm.

      Yes dawn or early morning is the finest place to be when blooms are awaking. Thanks for this lovely comment dear Orchi.

    • dusk arising

      The garden before you, or the one in your mind's eye must be a sight to behold rich in the nurture and cherish you give us in your poetry such that visions unfold of these delicate natural blooms.
      I've said, along with others and many times, you truly do have such a talent in this poetic craft. None here bring such a "realness" to natural beauty as do your fingers.

      • Fay Slimm.

        You are so generous with your reveiws dear Dusk - - thanking you immensely for the time taken to read and digest and then comment on this my piece called So Much.

        • Fay Slimm.

          So glad you like the personification I tried with this piece Nev. - - my fanciful mind sees faces in flowers and asks should I find feelings if I look deeper. Oodles of thanks for your welcome review............. x

          You have a gift of expression that paints beautiful pictures in the minds eye. Gentle words that evoke emotion, and make me smile. Thank you for the start to my day!

          • Fay Slimm.

            Tis my pleasure to please with penned tribute to nature dear Bella - - -earth-life is teaching new things every minute should we like to look, listen and learn.

            • Fay Slimm.

              Ah thank you Raven - - it is delightful to read that you could picture the scene my pen tried with word-sketch to poetically describe.

              • Raven333

              • Jerry Reynolds

                Fine imagery, Fay.
                Lovers of dawn and early morning. Find a spot any spot and bide there for longer than a while.

                • Fay Slimm.

                  Yes you are right on the ball Jerry - - it has to be a spot of quiet too - - well at least for me. What marvels we miss if we dont sometimes see the dawn in.
