Nature Can Give Rest and Inspire Poetry

Tonight I have been busy at work writing more poetry from the online Nature Magnetic Poetry Kit. The first shows how nature canΒ help us rest and at the same time inspire poetry. The second one celebrates love and the poetry it inspires. [bctt tweet=”Each stanza in both of the poems is a separate haiku” username=”GaylWright”].

Poetry From Nature


Like seasons of life
Poetry is fresh and bright
Or dark and lonely

Through vivid color
Come watch a gentle river
With secret longing

Breathe pure air at dawn
Relax between lake and tree
Nature could give rest

Like rain on green grass
Let her water your spirit
You will grow and thrive


nature poetry


Beneath the Moonlight


I can see you there
On our secret garden path
Beneath the moonlight

You wander throughout
And listen to the wind song
I watch quietly

Walk with me my love
Poetry comes fresh and sweet
My world is at peace



If you’ve never tried out an online magnetic poetry kit,Β you might like to take a look. There are several categories to choose from, so there may be something that you like better than the nature kit I use. It’s a challenge but can also be fun and rewarding. Sometimes the words just seem to fall into place. Other times I change them around over and over before I am satisfied.

  1. Gayl, I’m always impressed with folks who can write poetry. It is not something that comes naturally to me at all. I’ve never seen those magnetic things. πŸ™‚ Good job, thanks for sharing. πŸ™‚ ((grace))

  2. What a wonderful outlet for your creativity, Gayl. I’ve never heard of the magnetic poetry kit but it sounds delightful, especially for people like me who aren’t very good at poetry. πŸ˜‰ Thanks for sharing your beautiful poems.

    1. Thank you so much, Lesley! It really is fun to do, and I wouldn’t have thought of it unless I hadn’t seen one of my friends using it! πŸ™‚ You might enjoy trying it yourself!

      Blessings to you! Thanks for visiting and commenting. I’m really sorry it went to spam first. I’ll have to check on that. I have some people who comment often and I have to keep approving it. It must be in one of my plug ins. I’m going to try to remedy that.

  3. I love your poetry, Gayl. “The “gentle river with secret longing” tugs at the longing inside of me. Nature truly does give rest and water my spirit. Thank you for these vivid images. Have a blessed week!

    1. Thank you so much, Trudy! I’m glad you love the poetry. That’s really encouraging to me. πŸ™‚

      Many blessings to you and thanks for visiting and leaving encouragement!

  4. Gayl, how clever of you to not only write poetry but to have all the stanzas in rhyming haiku and to write about the topic of poetry as well!! Wow, I’m in awe of your talent, dear friend! It took me ages to gather my wits (and some words of magnetic poetry) together this weekend to share today. Sadly, my brain doesn’t function so well when I’m extra fatigued. But I so admire your poetic mastery of words here. Blessings and congratulatory hugs to you fellow poet/writer friend!

    1. Joy, thank you so much for your sweet encouragement! It took me awhile to get the second poem finished last night. Just as I was about to publish I realized that the 1st line of the second stanza only had 4 syllables, so I had to go back into the magnetic poetry website and fix it, then do my picture all over again. πŸ™‚ But it was worth it to me.

      I know how it is when you are fatigued. It’s just hard to do anything. I did love your poetry today, too! It was beautiful, as always.

      Many blessings to you dear poetic sister! Love and hugs! xoxo

  5. Dear Gayl,
    You and Joy bring such inspiration to me, as I watch your bravery with new poetic ventures! And I do feel that your poetry is “Like rain on green grass”

    I am continuing to venture in, and enjoying the process! Your daughter’s e-class is a blessing as well. Even within the first two lessons, I felt the Lord bringing truth to me, and confirming His Scriptures! Isn’t His creativity an amazing gift to our Spirits? Be Blessed today, my poetic friend! πŸ™‚ xoxo

    1. Dear Bettie,
      I’m so glad to be able to bring inspiration to you! I appreciate very much your encouragement. Thank you for your compliment on my poetry. πŸ™‚

      So glad you are enjoying her class. She is gifted in that area and has helped me a lot. And yes, I agree that God’s gift of creativity is such a blessing.

      Many blessing to you, dear Bettie! Love and hugs! xoxo

  6. Good! Good! GREAT! Gayl! I love these and the call to create from the quiet, the moment, the peace and angst in us. I have not tried this but it looks like fun along with a way to be inspired…if I will allow such!

    1. Thank you so much for your encouraging comments, Linda! I’m glad you like them. πŸ™‚ It is fun and I’m pretty sure you would enjoy trying!

      Blessings to you! Have a great week!

    1. Yes, Anita, I am having a lot of fun! πŸ™‚ Thank you for your compliment! You would probably have fun, too, if you tried it. πŸ™‚

      Blessings to you!

  7. Nature is one of my fave places to write poetry. Blessed to be your neighbor at Three Word Wednesday this week.
