Today at d’Verse Poetics Pub, CC is our guest “bartender”. She is speaking to us about Nature and the healing of Nature so our poems are being written around that theme. So many of us, I know, find that peace and healing in Nature – no matter how busy the day or how much stress, some time in our gardens, walking in a park, sitting on a porch in the summer night and listening to the night sounds, always seem to soothe us and help heal our hearts. I have included a video from YouTube of a summer night in East Tennessee. it is like the summer night sounds around here. The video is 3 1/2 minutes long, but the first few seconds should give you a good idea if you want to listen. There are no visuals, just darkness and summer sounds. These sounds remind me of my childhood and sitting out at night. I still do that – sit on my back steps at night to rest, recycle, reclaim my inner peace, being restful with Nature.
Come join us at d’Verse Poetics today and read about healing Nature and please, feel free to contribute one of your poems along that theme! We are not a bunch of snobs and welcome all to participate in the discussion and to link up your poem and comment. http://dversepoets.com/2015/07/28/poetics-in-tune-with-nature
summer night lullaby – warm
darkness surrounds – day’s
distractions all disappear –
soft night’s healing peace
