Poem: Mother Nature Takes Vacation

I am a writer. My passion is poetry. I feel words connect people together and help us to understand the feelings we share.

"Mother Nature Takes Vacation

Little peeps of green
shooting up through the barren soil,
like tulips, crocuses, and hyacinths
tempting us with spring.

With Mother Nature fooling us daily,
sending flooding downpours
changing to ice skating rinks,
with temperatures spiking
on a sunny day,
to snow covered blankets by morning.

Mother Nature must be busy
traveling with Father Time
taking a much needed vacation,
leaving the four seasons,
spring, summer, fall, and winter
to fight it out
on their own.

Ruby,

Me too! We have snow and 20's today but by sunday it will be in the 50's.

Rain all next week but a temperature spike.

My poor little flower bulbs are wanting to bloom...who knows if they will.

Take care.

Boy, you got it right, crazy weather, 60 degrees one day, snow and 20 degrees the next day. I am soooo ready for summer!

Lorna,

Mother Nature has surely given us a diverse season this year.

She is probably smiling at me while I scrap the snow from car looking down at my snow covered flowerbeds.

Thanks for reading.

Lovely poem!

Lorna Lamon on February 28, 2020:

Given the state of the planet it was refreshing to read this lighthearted poem Brenda. Mother Nature never disappoints and you made her smile. Just lovely.

Chitrangada,

Thank you.

Yes, it's quite easy to be inspired by Mother Nature each day just looking out the window.

Have a wonderful day!

Rosina,

Thank you.

I had to find some fun. It is snowing here again and my poor little flower bed is confused.

Have a great night.

Chitrangada Sharan from New Delhi, India on February 27, 2020:

Beautifully expressed poem about Mother Nature.

How Mother Nature inspires us everyday, is amazing. I believe, for most of the writers, this is the ultimate inspiration.

Thanks for sharing.

Great poem on mother nature taking a vacation with the four seasons left on their own to fight along. I loved it. Truly appreciated, Brenda.
