Did you know the earth laughs in flowers
It's many colours out on show
With all the many flowers
The earths heart does brightly glow

The earth she shines so brightly
When her flowers push up their tiny heads
And all at once the earth laughs
Within her flower beds

So plant some colourful flowers
To help her laugh for all time
Laughter from the earth
So we know she is just fine


 Love is the life of the soul...
It is the harmony of the universe

Tracie~

Made me think of the laughter in my own garden.  

The daffodils are daffy !

The rose blushes !

The heather flirts 'come hither'.

All of Spring is laughing ...
Thank you for this little charmer.

Charmer indeed!  This is just breathtaking in beauty!  I never thought of it that way....however, some of my flowers are "brown" as in dead, so what do you suggest that says?  hehehehe  I know, I suck at the green thumb thing.  I honestly try, I do!     This poem was just peachy though!

Yes mother earth is beautiful in many ways.
And the trees must be singing to us
That ball of fire gives growth from rays
While mountain rocks whisper hush

Yes mother feeds with passion fruit
A billion Insects know their path
A single owl gives a hoot
Because mothers flowers proudly laugh

Bumble bees land on flowers,
Collecting nectar to make honey,
Delicacies of the world, sweet lovers,
Address each other simply 'honey'.

Flower beds on wide fields, shine,
as does the earth, who holds the beds,
embraced in her sweet bosom, close to heart, feels divine
like little children clinging, glowing reds...

This is beautiful work here, tracie, I wish I could write as good as you do....

Regards,
sudhir.


 Life is like a painting,
That in an art gallery is left hanging,
Though many come just to look at it,
A very few actually come to enjoy it.

Tracie~

Sudhir~
I don't believe what you have written...you wished you could write as good as me look at what you have written here it is just beautiful and I thank you so much  

Bumble bees land on flowers,
Collecting nector to make honey,
Delicacies of the world, sweet lovers,
Address each other simply 'honey'.

Flower beds on wide fields, shine,
as does the earth, who holds the beds,
Embraced in her sweet bosom, close to heart, feels devine
like little children clinging, glowing reds...

Ahh....Sigh
Thanks Sudhir
