My Full-Throated Song, a poem

A dear friend of mine has been encouraging me to write more for some of my photography.  I thought I’d see what I could make of it.  I hope you enjoy 🙂

Have you ever heard
the full-throated song
that escapes my chest?
Have you ever lingered,
found yourself
lost in the enticing scent
of my perfumed lips
and wondered at
my silent bow
in gentle winds?
For though
the rows
have carefully been planted
how many truly listen?
how many truly see?
I feel
the grasses grow
beneath my feet
I smell
the hint
of summer rain.
And how much
closer could I be,
to life and death
that here in these moments –
where dawn emerges,
a gentle womb of sustenance,
and dusk overshadows,
a bearer of sleep.
Were I to dream –
I would dream
of eternal spring,
but soon,
a coldness shall linger
and winter
will steal our hearts.
I worry not,
the consequences of breath
but celebrate my beauty
for I have been
made to sing
and gloriously,
my soul
is filled with song.

      1. Good and bad days, thank you for asking, Sumyanna. Weather warming up, I’m hoping for more good days 🙂


  2. Wow! This poem made my skin tingle. It’s beautiful. I felt as if I was standing in a dewy meadow an a spring morning, watching nature awaken. That’s the only way I can describe it.

      Now that is a compliment! Oh, I’ve been feeling the need for spring for a while and this was one of my first poems for her 🙂 I could not help myself. So glad you liked it Jane!

      1. I certainly did. It’s miserable in the UK at the moment, but you’re poem gave me a taste of spring. It’s my favorite season.
