Revival

A Poem by Christine Anne Shaw
"

(for my friends)

"
may your days be brimful of joy
overflowing with spring's happiness

as lambs frolic in greenest farm fields
decked with dawn's first dew droplets

while each bud on bending branch
waits to burst into blissful blossom

where blackbirds greet you in a
chorus of contented hopefulness

and brook's waters gurgle over old
granite stones now worn smoother

permit the sapphire sky to swallow
those bluest mood troubles away

so rays of warm sunshine can heal
any harmful doings done to you

while niggling aches and pains
swirl swiftly down yesterday's drain

breathe in slowly exhale calm
restore equilibrium, banish all pain

I meditation for the soul. A song for the heart. I love spring season-My favorite next to autumn. The very beginnings of the birth. The birth of a new leaf. A flower. The bird’s song. And then the young baby chirps of a new generation.

And yes! A new REVIVAL...

Chris. Thank You! Happy Easter

there was a woodpecker in the tree behind my mothers house. I didn't see her, but heard her familiar rat-a-tat and recognized it from the many cartoons i've watched.lol/ We have so much to cleanse ourselves of and from. So, at your poetic suggestion, i've started my days with a large glass of water and a seat somewhere in the sun. Then a big exhale from the ugly and the irritating circumstances of 2020-2021.. An uplifting poem is what the world needs most of all.... beautifully written....dana

Nothing heals like nature does . If we let ourselves be consumed by wonders of nature , if we open ourselves to that beauty , we can truly in your words , restore equilibrium and banish all pain . This piece was a little more beautiful that 'very' . keep safe and well :)

Such a difference in this view of peace and rebirth compared to that of those who do not value nature's finest gifts, nor even afford them a second look.
We have a red-wing blackbird male who returns to us every year for six months to raise a song and a brood. We enjoy him so much and we were glad to see your mention of the "blackbird chorus" and that your work is "out there" for the enjoyment of others who relate foremost to nature. Thank you Chris!

Surely Spring has sprung for you and I'm glad. Trees growing greener and greener with their buds waiting to sprout. I love how you pick up on all those things that make our anticipation of Spring so enjoyable. Gone at last the doleful days of winter and hopefully too, gone are the dreds of Covid. I get my second shot Monday. I hope that you and yours are getting them.
Take care - Dave

A gentle, calming, beautiful poem. I can see how good this would be to read while feeling upset or anxious- it reminds you of all the good, beautiful nature right outside your window if you just look out there. The rhyming is done brilliantly. Reading this really does revive and refresh you, exciting you for the warm days and Vitamin D to come! The positivity reminds of 'Here Comes The Sun', it's uplifting in that same way. But it really is it's own, beautiful classic piece of art.

Thank you so much for that lovely review. All good wishes.

Very uplifting and encouraging. The entire piece was fantastic but these two lines really touched me today,

'permit the sapphire sky to swallow
those bluest mood troubles away'

This poems comes with a smile. Thank you for sharing.

I thank you, for checking in and leaving such a nice review. All the best.

Chris
this is the kind of poem that *would* be some cliche pastoral scene, and not really worth reading but...it's brilliant. Just done really well. I don't know particularly what else to say about it.
