Twenty Fourth Poetry Post: Go Tell It

TELL IT TO THE HEART

Whisper it
Sing
Dance
Prance
Give it a chance

Tell a joke,
Make it laugh
Offer riddles
Hum a tune
Just do it soon

Toast it
Boast to it
Read a story
Pat it on the back
Give it a book, a whole stack

Mumble
Stay humble
Tell it everything
Gesture with your hands
Everything it understands

Be bold
Stand tall
Do sign language
Go shy
Ask why

No reason to yell
Or stomp about
Just don’t doubt
Or shout
Swearing, definitely out

On second thought
Just offering love ought
To say all that’s needed
Even more love given . . .

That’s how you’ll be greeted!


HAIKUS - TELL IT TO THE EARTH

Apple tree I see
Your fruit and juice touches me
Your shade lets me rest


Waterfall and breeze
Your sounds gently comfort me
I flow peacefully


Wafting aromas
In rows of blooming roses
Your scent heals my soul


Bright green tall mountains
How you inspire my dreams
Heights I reach with you


Night fall and sun rise
I love your cycles of light
Your yin and yang counts
