Redefining Nature

Redefining Nature

A Poem by Kelly Scheppers



Redefining Nature

 

 

One by one

they fall

with diaphanous clarity,

leaving no footprints

as they go

 

redefining nature

as we know.

well yes, snow can be beautiful but after having a week of being housebound because of it has lost its wonderment here in England , it has redefined everyone's landscape :)

I wrote a haiku poem called "Rain in Slow Motion", and I photographed rain falling on my window screen at sunset to illustrate the poem. You've done something similar here. I love the poem and the photo. Here in the desert, one good rain can turn our sand green, redefining nature. I love the one rhyme you always seem to give us; it's so satisfying!

To me this is a statement about how we're losing so many precious species due to our bad stewardship of the planet, so to me this is a sad & poignant observation. One of the most poetic things ever said about this topic. Incredible use of words & sounds & imagery! (((HUGS))) Fondly, Margie

I can feel the nostalgia behind this lovely poem. I grew up in Minnesota and snow was plentiful. Every now and then I wish I could wake up to a blanket of it but the memories remain. Love this piece!

Wonderful use of words dear Kelly. You gave life to the photo. Snow. Can be wonderful if off work and a bear, on the work days. Thank you for sharing the amazing poetry.

dear Kelly ... you leave notes in the Winter of my heart that plays like a Globe with falling snow. Remember Frank Sinatra singing "Softly as I leave you". Snow birds leave the sweetest prints... truly, Pat

Brevity in a poem is a delicate, purposeful razor that few poets can balance and not shed blood. No stitches needed here.
