I’ve come up with a 15-word and 17-syllable Haiku called Silent Sunday, with two photographs I took recently in Fontibre, Cantabria, Spain.

Silent Sunday

Don’t speak now keep still,
Listen to wind shaking trees,
Watch drops slip down leaves.

****

Trees and leaves, like flowers are always quiet, peaceful and so pretty. It’s impossible to feel upset or angry while looking at them, their light shines straight into our hearts.

We all need a few minutes of silence, to recap, listen to ourselves carefully and recharge our batteries for the coming week.

So, this weekend, look for trees, leaves or flowers, they’ll make you smile and help you regroup!

Send me a picture of a tree, leaf or flower on twitter and I’ll write you a poem:)

Spring Smiles

Spring smiles at gravel

Flowers sparkle in your eyes

Cheerful cheeks do blush

Joyful lips grin and giggle

Petals shine brighter than sun

#NaPoWriMo Day 5 ‘Wild #Flower’ #poetrymonth #April #Poems #Haiku

NaPoWriMo

National Poetry Writing Month is a poetry writing challenge to write a poem a day, which takes place every year in April. Follow the link to find out more, be inspired, get daily prompts and meet other poets!

Day 5 poem, Wild Flower, was inspired by a photograph of a flower on fellow blogger Paul Militaru’s Blog, where he posts his photography portfolio, which brightens my day with his beautiful pictures.

Wildflower

Delicate and free

As quiet as a whisper

Will make your heart smile

****

A tiny wildflower is a beautiful and vital part of our ecosystem. Flowers attract insects, birds and other living beings, including humans!

Flowers are always quiet and peaceful. It’s hard to feel angry while looking at a flower, and remember, you can catch more flies with honey than with vinegar.

So, this weekend, look for flowers, they’ll make you smile!

Send me a picture of a flower on twitter and I’ll write you a poem:)
