OFOTW and NaPoWriMo Mashup

Today’s challenge:

write a “pastoral” poem. Traditionally, pastoral poems involved various shepherdesses and shepherds talking about love and fields, but yours can really just be a poem that engages with nature. One great way of going about this is simply to take a look outside your window, or take a walk around a local park. What’s happening in the yard and the trees? What’s blooming and what’s taking flight?

Daffodil Dance

Deep birth from mothers warmed.

Twirl hearts, sway heads, shake-a-leg Sunshine,

Death pushed aside for life reborn,

Yellow, white and green. Pink, rose, and aquamarine.

Forever New and Old juxtaposed,

Lessons of Hope and letting go.

      Thanks Maz. I do like to be outside. So for a non-poet, this was a little easier to get my heart around.
