NaPoWriMo – Day 4
The weather has been absolutely beautiful in Devon today – it’s been warm, sunny and still, I didn’t realise how much I’d missed feeling the sun on my face. It’s made me feel the lovebug again, it’s not often I write in a rhyming verse but the words just came to me this time. So for Day 4 of NaPoWriMo this is a poem called I Love. I hope you like it! 🙂
I feel love when I see
the golden light of dawn,
I feel love when I hear the birds singing
telling me a new day is about to be born,
I feel love when I’m in time
to rise with the sun,
I feel love when she bursts forth
like a glowing flood breaking grey banks. . .
I feel love when I hear
the gentle pad of paws,
I feel love when I sense a furry head
nudging open a half-closed door,
I feel love when I stroke
my soul mates on all-fours,
I feel love at the sound
of a meow or two,
I feel love when I see the sky
stretched out as a sea of blue.
I feel love for the milkman
“here’s some leftover milk for your cats”
I feel love when I hear the postman
push the mail through the cat-flap,
I felt love in the hug
my friend gave me today,
I felt love in the fact she knew
it was all I needed to keep my tears at bay,
I feel love when a total stranger
stops and smiles at me,
I feel love when I sit on a bench
and watch the wind ruffle the trees.
I feel love when my phone bleeps
and it’s a mate, “just saying hi”
I feel love when I look at the world
and have no idea why.
I feel love every day
love of all different kinds,
love is always there
if only we opened our eyes
and weren’t so blind,
I feel love in these words
I feel love in my heart
I feel love for you,
I love. . .
I just do.
