Silver linings

The Poet and Original word sets left me cold today. Switched to Nature, and got this from the first page.

Silver linings

Beneath the cover of blossom
berries grow round and red
fat as baby squirrels.

Beneath the rose the root
digs deep as secrets
into summer earth

and through the rain
the sun shines warming
the backs of the clouds.

I used to do lots of things I didn't much enjoy. Now I am officially a writer. It's what I always wanted to be.

    1. I’ve just read yours, and yes, our poems aren’t similar at all. Different messages. It’s what touches each of us personally that the Oracle taps into and she thought I needed something light and cheerful.

  1. The Oracle knew Kerfe and I had already used the same words for opposite emotions, so you were right to move on. This is lovely with such beautiful images–those fat squirrel berries and the sun warming the backs of clouds (love that!). I agree “nourishing words.”
