Science is for those who learn; poetry, for those who know. — Joseph Roux, Meditations of a Parish Priest
To be a poet is a condition, not a profession. — Robert Frost
Everything one invents is true, you may be perfectly sure of that. Poetry is as precise as geometry. — Gustave Flaubert

~ Nature's Nudgings ~

Love is the Sunshine blessing a flower
with sweet, gentle rays at dawn
"Wake Up!" nature nudges
Her petals open up, a gentle yawn

Love is the Rain bathing a flower
raindrops patting on her in tune
"Drink Up!" nature nudges
Her petals enriched, full of bloom

Love is the Bumblebee visiting a flower
coaxing sweet nectar to pollinate
"Let's Share!" nature nudges
She helps fellow flowers propagate

Love is the Wind testing a flower
Bending her all directions, to and fro
"Let's Stretch!" nature nudges
Her stem strengthens up as she grows

Love is the Moon blessing a flower
after dark with soft, gentle moonbeams
"Let's Sleep!" nature nudges
She closes up her petals tight to dream

Love is a great thing to have in one's life and can be beautiful with the right person or things.

I also read your last two poems. The one about your mom and those buttons is good because I felt a sense of belonging throughout and sharing of time.

I can relate to the one about the red dress because I have clothes that don't fit me now.

Hope all is well.

This is really beautiful, and it shows sometimes simple is better - less is more. You used just the right words, I love the images it brings to mind.
