In Morning’s Bloom

In Morning's Bloom
In Morning’s Bloom

‘Often as poets, we seek inspiration from experience, from what we see and sometimes from art that touches us, seems to reach out to our heart. I often use images to give flight to my words and to inspire their creation as poems. This particular piece is one such artwork. I immediately fell in love with it: its gentle vision, its soft, feminine aspect and a story to be told. In this case, simplicity seemed to satisfy my Muse and this is the result. I hope you enjoy it.’

In the mist by water’s edge
four figures etched in frills and gifts of beauty,
sit upon the grassy bank, finger plays in water ripples,
laughing voices over silence, heard,
as joy does rise from all these hearts, so present,
as softest hues do meld in morning’s bloom.

Poetry is often difficult within the bounds of SEO’s and such, wanting 300 words +, but in poetry, it is often the simplicity of few words that captivates the heart most and has the greater impact. I seldom put up short poems for that reason, but sometimes I want to share and the SEO’s will have to struggle with me. 

The accompanying artwork is what inspired me and I’ve embedded the poem within. Enjoy.

    It is lovely, Tony, soft and gentle, complete in its simplicity. I agree, SEO dampens the beauty of short poems. It is not always easy to write a poem based on the requirements of SEO. I often write short poems in my private journal and to add to them to reach a required word count would destroy their beauty. Great work indeed my dear poet. Take care.

    Glad you enjoyed it, Phyllis. Yes, its a struggle with SEO’s but I managed to get there with this one. I guess we just have to be creative in presentation. Take care. Cheers!

    Wonderful and lovely verse. As a poet, I look toward the emotions and feelings not caring about SEO.

    I agree, it’s usually not an issue for me, but I think short poems have a place on the site. The SEOs are really about getting better readership, and after all, that’s what we want, to be read. Glad you enjoyed the work Rasma. Take care

    I enjoyed this Tony and love the artwork that inspired it. I agree trying to stretch it would have actually decreased the beauty or gentle impact. It is a shame that we are restricted by SEO but as you found there are ways around it by adding commentary and such.

    Thanks, John, I agree, I think short poems are a valuable part of poetry, and we shouldn’t be burdened by SEOs, so adding text allows for all to be happy. Cheers!
