‘Brushes of Breeze’ … a joint poem by Martin Shone and Jane Thorne

Martin Shone and I have been creating again.

Brushes of Breeze

Nature blends its colours
through dawn till dusk
brushes of breeze paint the life

Fold upon fold upon
a naked palette
a speckled light
a dappled mist
sprinkling sunlit dust
along tracks of nature’s peace

Her story to be told
with greens of earthen love
fronds of a spider’s kiss
a feathered blush
a tickled stroke
a watercolour love
a tree leaf’s gentle touch

Whispered dreams of a bird’s wing
rainbow songs of a waterfall’s passion
mountain hopes of a snow’s pure light

Eagle soars above a forest’s dark depths
where tree folk roam invisible to all
weaving their magic of universal hue
creating a mosaic for me and you.

    I am continually astounded about how you and Martin are getting better and better in your poetic partnering! A truly spiritual, soul-stirring mosaic you have created here! You two are so well-matched in your love and understanding of the natural world.

      Hi Linda, we go to such a peaceful place when we create together, what blessings xx Yes, I think we do want the peace of nature within us..always. It’s there we just have to quieten down the thrum of life to hear it sometimes..I think. Much love to you xxx

    Absolutely beautiful. Whoever we are, no matter how lonely, the world offers itself to our imagination, calls to us like wild geese, elusive and exciting — wise and peaceful — over and over reminding us of our place in the family of love (the story of life). Wonderful job, you two! ~ Love, Bobbie

    This is a perfect reflection of nature’s canvas, I especially like that you mention the tree folk, they are so abundant, yet we ignore their magic…

    Spectacular, an earthly mosaic touched by a spider’s kiss; a brand new look at nature.
    Blessings – Maxi
