Body Image

Ancient Tree

The body image of a sturdy tree
Presents the patience of serenity
And all about it, friend or foe, may know
That now’s a special time that they can be.

The body image of a brilliant flower
Seems weak although attraction is a power.
Whichever way the wind tells dreams to go
The now will follow blessing every hour.


Text: Kim of Writing in North Norfolk is hosting at dVerse with the theme “body image”. This post doesn’t quite fit the prompt, so I am not linking it, but stop on by to see what people are posting for it.  The form I am using is a rubai: four lines, iambic pentameter and rhyming AABA.

  1. Very beautiful poems and prose-poetry. I especially like how you are able to connect lovely descriptions of nature with human feelings. Love “patience of serenity”.
