Muse Entertainment Anagram Poem

We are now in the last month of the inaugural full mistYmuse winter light festival. brightening up the northern hemisphere’s traditionally most difficult months.

mistYmuse Special

Spring seems to have arrived early, with some warmer than average sunny weather the last fortnight, although its forecast to return to normal midweek.

Here’s a little anagrammatic poem-philosophical thought, using the letters I-a-s-s-u-m-e on three lines; something like the 121 reflections in my second poetry collection.

I assume
as I muse
I amuses

Sunrise Inspired Winter Solstice Poem

Iridescence makes more sense,
After flying clouds of white n grey
Showed a purple n green hue
Passing through the sunrise’s
Crepuscular rays.
Before, I only saw still clouds brightened this way.
It made me think sun is the dominant member in the partnership.
Before, I had thought it was clouds.
Clouds are the canvas. Sun is the painter.

Poem Imagining Summer and Autumn Exchange

Times they are a changin’… Although summer is holding on in Britain, and could even be roaring back later this week, the nights are drawing in, and nature seems to be readying itself for the annual change from summer to autumn (fall). Over the last few days I noticed the leaves rustling in the wind.

They’ve probably done it at other times in the summer, and maybe it’s more in my mind, but the trees seemed to be shaking themselves up for the big change. Here’s a Folding Mirror poem it inspired, imagining what summer and autumn are saying in their greeting:

Good Summer Season, Warmly Welcomes Autumn

summer meets autumn
after year apart
shaking windy branches
upturned leaves smile
exchanging colours
under changeable skies

warm greeting over, time for disclosure

my best season
summer beams
for many years
autumn changes mood
I worked overtime
winter was late

The autumn as one of the four meteorological a...
The autumn as one of the four meteorological and astronomical seasons, the season between summer and winter. In the temperate zones it is the time of harvest and the leaves fall. In the fall of the northern hemisphere the sun moves from the seemingly celestial equator to the Tropic of Capricorn. (Photo credit: Wikipedia)

Nature Poem about Earth’s Sun Cycle Seasons

It is nearly August. While spring in the northern hemisphere feels like a time to restore sunshine levels, late summer feels like a time to store up for the winter. Here’s a Folding Mirror poem with that theme:

Scandinavia 461

Preparing for Summer Departure, No Time for Laughter

Two days left of July
yesterday,
the sky seemed to cry.

August, the last summer month
northern,
does the sun think we’ve had enough.

September and October last
breaths,
warm winds keep winter at bay.

our star doesn’t really leave, it’s our planet’s circling weave

It’s the south’s turn to face
inwards,
Australasia and Africa tilt.

Our annual repetitive cycle space planetary gravity
journey,
365, and a quarter days.

Colourful leaves before snowy scenery
tomorrow,
six months before next spring.

New Mirror Poem Celebrates Spring’s Energy

Marc Latham’s new Folding Mirror poem celebrates the joys of the spring season, when memories of cold winter lose dominance to hopes for warm summer, and new life emerges into the heat of a greening world. For long-living species like ours it is an annual cycle, but for some it lasts for just a few hours of our day; a time when they frantically follow their instincts, trying to make good of their life for their species, unburdened by distractions… although other life forms might try and eat them! It’s all of joy and interest to us anyway. Here’s the poem:

Abundant Life, Lives Absolutely 

sunrise of the year
should be spring
surge movement
spins life cycle
full speed

open sky fuels life, nourished by faraway sun

whirling buzzing
birds and bees
busy trees
making the most
of their natural time

Poetic Light Snow: Seasons’ Seeds of Change

Marc Latham’s latest Folding Mirror poem was inspired by the current cold spell in the UK, with snow on the ground in Leeds for the first time this winter. It seems ironic that the most wintrish of symbols should be falling now that the days are getting noticeably lighter; nearly a month after the ‘shortest day’; suggesting that spring is around the corner. Here’s the poem:

Snowcatcher

Late Snow Arrives, All Seasons Leave 
ancient trees three months bare
snow in my hair
but spring is in the air
Easter begins to knock, light lasts past four-o’-clock
old winter is shown the door
sun rules once more
new life dresses Earth’s floor
