Natures Concert (Pantoum)

by Meena Krish   Sep 1, 2014


Natures' concert brings all things alive
as she hums a soft tune of gentle breeze,
on lushes grass she plants diamond eyes
and perfumes the day with fresh life,

As she hums a soft tune of gentle relief
she drapes the sky with her golden sun,
and perfumes the day with fresh life
while flock of birds chant morning hymns ,

She drapes the sky with her golden sun
gives earth a kiss for the day to thrive,
while flock of birds chant morning hymns
awakening spirits to forget its strive,

Gives earth a kiss for the day to thrive
on lushes grass she plants diamond eyes,
awakening spirits to forget its strive
natures' concert brings all things to life.

The Pantoum is written in four line stanzas. It can
be written in free verse, metered or rhyme with
repeating lines in an interlocking pattern and
there is no length restriction.

For example:
First Stanza: Line 1, line 2, line 3, line 4
Second Stanza: Line 2, line 5, line 4, line 6
Third Stanza: Line 5, line 7, line 6, line 8
Fourth stanza: Line 7, line 3, line 8, line 1

    What a beautifully vivid and well written piece you've crafted here, Meena, with a lovely flow. I would like to pick a stanza but they really are all beautifully penned and cleverly done!
    All the very best,

    Wow, another form I have been blind to! Thank you for pointing this out, I shall have to be brave and attempt it myself soon!

    I enjoyed this poem, the content left me feeling quite relaxed and calm, and say me inside a comfortable surrounding of gentle nature! The idea of nature having a concert is just a genius idea! What a wonderful thought and straight away lets that imagery really open up to ideas, hearing the birds, the breeze, the waters, the little sounds that we don't even notice or acknowledge. What a beautiful poem!

    Felt the beauty and timelessness of Nature when I read your poem. Saw a sunlit meadow and heard birds chirping in my mind. Beautiful vibe here.
