Good Weather

Blue is the colour of sky
Delicious a taste of sunshine
In the absence of rain
Wind holds its breath

Oh, the sweet suspension!
Nature writes each line
Presents all elements;
Beauty in appreciation
Of the exact moment

PS. Sometimes it’s easy capture my world in six-word memoirs, other times not and especially when I’m on the move. But poetry never fails. So, I suspect I’ll be sharing more micro poetry, this season and throughout summer; call them “life on the move.” This also means there’ll be no backstories, as Archibald MacLeish puts it, β€œA poem should not mean But be.”

Wishing you a delightful weekend, and I hope you slow down to enjoy the scenery!

  1. I have two favourite colours β€” blue and red. Each one depending my mood. And you Khaya, have reminded me of all the reasons blue resonates. Thank you for this post and message! Sky HIGH beauty πŸ’™

  2. Oh, the sweet suspension! … love that expression in the middle… and the quote about not having backstories… I agree with that… am not sure what explanations do to poetry but maybe just leaving it in the reader’s hands is preferable… let it be!

  3. Thank you, Rajani. I love that quote a lot, because it’s so spot on. It can be frustrating to have to explain a poem I don’t even remember what inspired it. πŸ˜€

  4. Yep, it’s summer at last; a super crazy and fun-packed season. πŸ™‚ Thanks Kathy, I hope you’re making the best of your Europe trip. <3

  5. No, it won’t be on there, though you’re happy to visit it.

    I’ll post part of it (our time in the Netherlands) on Monday. Now that we’re in Croatia, I’m trying to suss out the rest πŸ˜‰

Do leave a trace!
