Moods Of Nature #Haiku

Glimpses from My Patio:

Yellow joy lures
The song of spring is chiming
New dreams awaken.
~

This hill regales my muse every single day, each waking moment. It is visible from my living room and the moment it changes its mood, I rush out to capture it.

All these pictures have been taken from my patio. Sometimes I go downstairs to capture a closer look, to smile with Mother Nature and celebrate her moods.

The book in my dream pipe right now is a collection of micro-poetry: Haiku, Tanka and acrostic poems.

A beautiful glow
Permeates through bare branches
Glorious dawn delight!
~

Hope sleeps on clouds
Drifts with their rolling rings
Conjuring its own path
~

Misty morning carries
Messages of new mysteries
Unmapped paths beckon
~

Celestial art charms
When clouds drape colors
Joyful moments tarry
~

  1. What an awesome post, Balroop! The view you have is stunning, and I loved seeing that vista through various stages and changes. Your poetry, as always, is lovely. I am particularly enamored of the lines: “Hope sleeps on clouds,
    Drifts with their rolling rings.” Words to ponder and wallow in!

    1. I have just shared a few pictures Mae. I have many more, as each day brings in a new mood. Thank you for your lovely words of appreciation. Though a mirage, I follow hope like a crazy lover follows unrequited love!

    1. O yes Diana, this view has inspired many poems. Thank you for your wishes. I am holding this book till fall, as organizing these poems according to seasons and their moods is really time-consuming.

  2. Gorgeous, Balroop. We used to have a similar view when we lived in Dublin. So nice you have that inspiration. I loved your words and look forward to your new book!

  3. I’m so happy for you, that you have a beautiful view. I also have beautiful northern California hills to look at, and the new miner’s lettuce, grape hyacinth, daffodils, and wildflowers are a stunning backdrop. They really do nourish creativity.

    My favorite poem in this bunch is the Misty Morning. Very resonant with Anglo-Saxon poetry, in case you don’t already know. Beowulf, the oldest narrative poem in the English language, made extensive use of alliteration. So, it’s a proud tradition, and it’s great when people make effective use of it. Like you. : )

    1. Thank you Cath for sharing your beautiful views of Cali hills… we are neighbors. 🙂
      I love alliteration, my favorite literary device. I am delighted to see that you could connect it with Anglo-Saxon poetry. Ah! What a lovely compliment. Love and hugs.

  4. Wow! You have a beautiful view. I can see why it inspires you. It’s amazing how the colors and feel of the landscape changes with the time of day. Mother Nature’s slide show. 😀 Gorgeous! I loved every single haiku. Bravo! ❤

  5. Wow, a gorgeous view, Balroop. Inspirational, stunning, peaceful, beautiful! Celebrating moods is a great concept versus the alternative. All of your words give me goosebumps, especially “when clouds drape colours.” I look forward to your new book!

    1. Nature is indeed inspirational Erica, each mood evokes some new thoughts. Thank you for sharing your thoughts dear friend. Have a wonderful weekend. 🤗❤️

  6. What a gorgeous view, Balroop, and perfect muse for your beautiful poetry. Your photos are stunning as well as your words. I love those misty mornings…and look forward to your new book. Mine should be out next month. 🙂 Have a lovely day. 🌷

  7. Balroop, I can well see why this view inspires you so much – it is beautiful and no moment the same. Yor poems reach into the universe, sharing its magic with us along with its ‘Celestial art charms’! Good luck with your latest project – you will do it brilliantly! 😀❤️

    1. You are right Annika, no moment is the same and each one could be captured. Many of my poems are inspired from the ever changing view, as seen from my living room. Thank you for your lovely wishes. 🤗❤️
