Natures dance

by tainted melody   Apr 25, 2012


The breeze dances through the leaves,
the Maple begins to sway with ease.
Each limb playng it's own part,
And so the waltz has it's start.

Then joins in the weeping willow,
soft and silky with rhythmic flow.
It's branches barely carress the ground.
Something more gentle cannot be found.

The tango requires another kind,
something one must search to find.
A plant with passion and sharper lines.
Maybe resembling a poisonous vine.

But every dance needs a melody,
so the wind whistles through each tree.
Then to give this song a beat,
the rhythmic thunder is unleashed.

The symphony is now complete,
a sound marking natures feat.

    So I just re read this one with midnight sky, and I loved it even more thand before! Lol. It dawned on me how creative it was to describe the trees like that especially the tango stanza it is a dance with sharp lines and you described a poisonous vine and it would be perfect in representing that. This was just very clever actually and does deserve to be nominated. Just wanted to tell ya just how much I loved it! Again.

    I like the metaphors you created for nature in this piece.
    "But every dance needs a melody,
    so the wind whistles through each tree.
    Then to give this song a beat,
    the rhythmic thunder is unleashed."

    This is my favorite part, very good flow.
    A masterpiece for sure!

    Wow.. The rhymes were written with such ease, it flows like water. The imagery explodes right in front of the readers face and the word choice isn't so simple, but at the same time, not so complicated. Nicely done..

    This was really neat. I loved how nature was compared to different types of dances. I thought that really made this poem come to life. All in all a great write. :)
