Nature of Unreason

Day 22 of 28 Days of Unreason

“Nature detonates your mind with the incalculable freshness of the new day” – Jim Harrison

Fiery orange sunlight

bursts through the cracks
in your heavy-lidded eyes.
The pulse of the day thunders
across bones that would splinter
if not for the blooming

row of daffodils
just outside, and the robin that sings
while a dragonfly darts passed
only for a moment
a moment

      Thank you, Nigel. So glad you like it! Spent some time enjoying nature today, just observing, listening. Something I should do more often.

      • As soon as I stop ‘seeing’ Lynn and realise I’m only looking then I know I have re-ground myself somehow, music, nature, film (Islay malt Whisky hee hee) just not writing .

        Exactly! I even sense it in my writing, the staleness if I’m not doing some of those other things. I tend to be a slave to the laptop so if you see that staleness, just tell me to ‘get outside’ or something. 🙂 Islay malt Whisky?! Now I’m thirsty.

    Bursts, pulse, thunders, splinters – Great words; so stong. You blend the power and the subtleness of the beauty so well. I agree with the above comments; we need to get away from the laptop to connect with the source of inspiration. Grass between our toes and the mixed scents of the natural world can reinvent us as poets.
