FOOD FOR HEARTY MINDS

Prime Connection

Perched at the bus stand my musings stood,

Halting its impulsive train on the mundane wood.

The trees sang in organic harmony with their heavy hood,

Dropping flowers of all colours like they ne’er would.

.

My journey hasn’t started but I hummed along,

Communing with Nature travelling a furlong.

My bus misses my travels strumming a different song,

While it uses a frequency of a stronger prong.

.

My heartbeat sounded from a melodious tine,

Following the tune of my mind’s whining pine.

A harmonious body and mind to suavely align,

With the forces of nature for a heady trine,

.

Changes in tune have a marked impact,

As sounds in the rush and swirl sway to distract.

There is an association to time that’s vaguely abstract,

Stifling the connection we’re given to protract.

.

The beauty of Nature is on an ethereal plane,

The mechanical works are in a rugged lane,

Sorting the two out decides our temporal vane,

With a measured tread to keep our vein.

    Its very difficult IMO to rhyme 4 lines consecutively, let alone in successive stanzas, and still make it sound interesting. I think you do a good job.

  33. Beautifully contemplative, almost hypnotic. I love the idea of experiencing nature while waiting for a bus, and you extend that them in a wonderfully wound muse on that situation.
