Bluebells - Poem by David Wood

Bluebells carpet the woodland floor
Packed so tightly that insects tip-toe
Softly and quietly between them.

    The visual detail in this beautifully presented poem is simply anazing. I love how the Spring rain washes away the signs of Winter and everything is once more renewed as Bluebells and Spring flowers appear. I love the use of metaphor, and how you express the brevity of life so eloquently. A magical write and another poetic gem from your golden poetic pen. Thank you for sharing, David (Report) Reply

    Spring rains, a blue carpet in the woods, insects playing game of love, a cold country where summer is awaited, is it a poem or a blue painting? Amazing description of a beautiful wood by a lovely poet Blue.....10 (Report) Reply

    A beautiful poem that sings of the beauty of Nature and expresses great love for a delicate flower. Ah, Their time on earth far too short.

    Love your ink.

    Nature now has all its beauty
    To the fore before summer casts its
    Delicate bluebells making spring so
    Their time on earth far too short. (Report) Reply
