Earth's Soul

Earth's Soul

A Poem by Valentine

         Earth's Soul


As all of nature, goes to sleep;

When winter's snow, drifts down.

All creaking timber, sighs and weeps,

For earth's soul, goes...underground.


Cold ice covers, land's dying warmth,

As bitter coldness, enters inside.

Burying all ugliness, where no real harm;

Can come to what, the earth and ice hide.


For a season of time, the world stands still,

Chilled by the brisk freezing breeze.

When suddenly...the sun shines at will,

Slowly thawing, the long winter freeze.


Like warm hands held fast... to the earth,

It once again the ground... shows us its soul;

Opening like, another miracle of birth,

When the sun and ground are again whole.


The sighing and shaking, of the warm land;

As all of the undergrowth pushes through.

Mother Nature needs... no helping hand,

As she awaits spring's rebirth... anew.


Then earth's soul is once again free;

Opening up and baring itself for all to see.

Whether it is the choice of words or the way they flow together but this is a perfect combination of intent, subject and composition. I found myself willing the words to grow springlike as I read through. Excellent.

Living where there are 4 seasons helps. Kathie
Spring is always welcome isn't it!? Avid skiers may not like it but they live above the tree line right!?? ;) i like the way you put winter as life going underground for a while .. strong metaphor ... easy to tuck inside :)

"The sighing and shaking, of the warm land;

John, nature has been really weird the past couple of weeks in Michigan, hasn't it? Kathie
You have captured the essence of nature by portraying the revival of earth from the claws of cold and despair.
It is a lesson that we all can learn. No matter how hopeless a situation seems, one day the the sun will shine and the ice will melt.

Waiting for the melt
longing for green grass
and warmer temperatures
days at the beach and the sun

These February thaws are always welcome, This year's has been exceptional. Jet Stream meandered to the north and we got that lovely warm air from down south. Funny it was global warming, then climate change, when really, it's always been weather. Good one, Kathie
