Mother Nature (7) – Passion

Celebrating nature over
seven vibrant days
Her hand of wonder covered
in seven different ways

And what better way to finish
than upon a note of passion
Passiflora with its Latin name
for horticultural fashion

But to my mind its a dancer
to the music nature plays
which with every sense of wonder
serves to brighten up my days

From 3 through 10 December, Jemverse has seven poems to celebrate Mother Nature’s hand – a different wonder every day. Photo – Jempics

The Welly

The feet upon the wooden floor
Are moving to the beat
as conversation struggles
for those who’ve found a seat
The man up on the microphone
is getting really loud
But the music’s really throbbing
and is pleasing to the crowd

There’s a lot of different footwear
but one purpose to the fore
To tap and move and dance and spin
on this old wooden floor
And at the Duke of Wellington
with friends in Shoreham here
A lovely time was had by all
with music and a beer

Dancing on a bed of white
my stamen orange in the light
I really am a gorgeous sight
for any eye to see

Fragrant there my sweet perfume
a bouquet subtle to presume
Those winter blues I will subsume
and watch them simply flee

Dancing

DSCN8240

I’m delving deep today
and dancing in my mind
On my way to London
as my senses are aligned
Listening to my music
hearing rhythm and a beat
Dancing as I travel
in my precious window seat

Around me lots of people
prodding phones and doing stuff
Averting gaze when captured
and mostly looking gruff
But the tune that I am hearing
only serves to bring a smile
which I share with those around me
and find is catching in a while

Soon those close where I’m sitting
have a grin upon their face
which is of course much better
than the frowns which they replace
My work done but still I’m dancing
and some have joined me now it seems
With glum and soured expressions
replaced with happy beams

Passion

Passion as a dancer
taking centre stage
Caught in a moment
at ocean’s sweet plage

In beauty your splendour
unparalleled here
Your late summer swan song
Bringing me cheer

Dancing to Life

I danced on a quay at Emsworth
playing a really big drum
The crowds from the town all following us
and everyone having fun

I danced with Pride in Brighton
‘neath a rainbow coloured flag
The crowds of people partying
in the sun made me feel glad

I danced on the Portsmouth waterfront
as five tall ships furled sail
The rhythm of the music thrummed
and helped tell a happy tale

I danced then and I’m dancing now
because the music never dies
It’s always in my heart and mind
for that’s where my rhythm lies

[A-Z April blogging challenge – day 4 – #D]

Writing 101 day 6: “Maracas”

Lady at Victoria Station shouting loud and long
Placards behind her heralding her many-sided song
Commuters passing blindly, amusement in their eyes
And when a policeman came along I wasn’t that surprised
At first her remonstrations were polite as she protested
But as her agitation showed it looked as though she’d be arrested.
Whatever passed between the two though, kept the officer at bay
Though I wondered about her maracas as I hurried on my way
The answer to that question came evidentially when
Later at Westminster amongst the tourists near Big Ben
The lady loud appeared again, maracas shaking to a beat
As her shouting turned to singing right there out in the street
Now the tourists passed her blindly, amusement in their eyes
Though now with several tapping feet as some danced, to her surprise
