A Blue Jewel On Black Velvet - Poem by Sunprincess

planet earth is my special home, and this home I love
the mountains I love, the desert I love, and the sea I love
and I especially love, fluffy white clouds above!

altogether, I receive pleasure from my home
like if holding sand, in the palm of my hand
or walking upon dirt, rocks, clay or even mud!

truly, I feel happiness is enjoying home
like a walk on a sunny day, in the month of may
seeing flowers and trees, grass and leaves!

and I feel, bliss is the enjoyment of home
like whistling a tune, in the month of june
feeling cool water, air, and warmth of the sun!

all of these aspects of home, are life's necessity
anywhere on earth I roam, I am enjoying my home
this planet is special, this blue jewel is my home!

    I was immediately drawn to read this poem because the title is such a vivid image - it's like a haiku - a poem complete in just one image. But I was surprised that you fleshed it out into a poem embracing all of Spring in May/June, the loveliest 8 weeks on our jewel of a planet surrounded by night. Do you know Ezra Pound's poem IN A STATION OF THE METRO? In about 1910 he reduced a 30 line poem to: The apparition of these faces in the crowd; /Petals on a wet, black bough. Amazing! That's why he's considered one of the creators of Modern Poetry! (Report) Reply

    Comparing your home to a blue jewel on earth. Very good
    thoughts and feelings. Home is where the heart is. A sweetly
    composed write. Poets are rich here on PH. We receive a lot of
    valuable thoughts, comparisons, inspiration, exposure and a
    tremendous amount of talents and support. (Report) Reply
