Poetry Digest - Eleventh Edition

Welcome back to the freewrite Poetry Digest brought to you by @wandrnrose7.

We are officially experiencing Summer here in Pennsylvania. I don't know of this is true of many of our readers as not everyone experiences the four Seasons, however, I believe climate plays a big role in our creative muse. I tend to react to Spring very differently than Summer, and Fall more than winter brings different poetic muse than Winter. Just like the environmental changes effect mood, the seasons of our souls can inspire very different poetry from our hearts.

In Celebration of Summer here, we are adding an additional poetic muse. You may pair it with the daily word prompt found here:

Here is the English translation from Google Translate.

Wood

Hardwood

resistant

you emerge from the tree

more beautiful.

With you man

transform your environment

turning everything.

Wood

if you get wet

you deform

Wood

if you burn

you will be coal

Or ash

that returns to earth.

Wood

you are the splinter

that sticks

like the nail in your skin.

Wood

blessed

In your arms

The son of God died.

Wood you gave me:

home

shapes

fire

hot

pain

and what to believe.

I hope you enjoyed these poems. If the poem is past payout, please find a recent post to share a vote and comment to support these lovely poets!
