Butterfly Poems

True aesthetic beauty is rarely so perfectly demonstrated in nature as in the butterfly. From the unique patterns and bright colours to the fanciful fluttering style of flying, butterflies have always captured people’s attention. It is no surprise that people draw inspiration from these gentle creatures. Starting as a caterpillar, before wrapping up in a cocoon and emerging as a beautiful butterfly is a story that many of us wish to relate to. The idea that we can change our nature and become something greater is not just a dream, but reality. If the butterfly can do it, so can we.

Earth Poems

When was the last time that you stopped to consider this planet that we live on? The earth has given us life. Its atmosphere literally puts a roof over our head, while the plants and trees provide us with the air we need to breathe. Countless species all cohabiting on this one incredible planet in harmony, and we’re destroying it. Animals are going extinct, natural resources are running dry and countrysides are quickly becoming cities. Why are we not doing more to protect our earth? From the flora to the fauna, the earth has welcomed us with open arms. It’s time we started to appreciate it.

LOVE LEAD NATURE is an acrostic sonnet, where the first letter of each line forms the title 'LOVE LEAD NATURE'.

Environment Poems

The earth is a truly remarkable place, but its environment is something that all too often we take for granted. The natural beauty of seas and forests are beyond compare, and yet we continue to pollute and corrupt them. We depend on our environment for our very existence, while all the while we continue to destroy it for materialistic gain. If humanity wishes to thrive, we need to learn to protect and embrace this planet and not work against it. If we don’t, we run the very real risk of destroying our home, and condemning future generations. We cannot let that happen.

What The Nature Suffers?

This is about the world who doesn't care about our environment/nature. They are spoiling nature.

Fall Poems

Every season has its own special charms and characteristics that we look forward to, but none are considered more spectacular than the fall. As the summer comes to a close, we are left with warm temperatures and changing colours. As the leaves change on the trees, we are left with some of the most stunning natural scenes as the beautiful gold and brown leaves create a sense of warmth and change. Although often seen as the end, the fall represents the dawning of a new day; a new chapter. Saying goodbye to the old and hello to the new. It’s no wonder so many people feel inspired at this time of year…how could you not be?

I wrote this around Halloween time a few years ago while I was sick. I compared how my body felt to the rainy storm going on outside of the house.


The poem is for nature lovers including myself. Having retired a few days ago, I find pleasure in writing poems on nature. Autumn is not to be construed as a sad season as nature needs rest to give way to a colorful and fruitful spring.

Horse Poems

The noblest of creatures; the horse is one of the more diverse of animals. To many a working man, the horse is a working animal, capable of tremendous strength and pulling power. However, for every working horse there are just as many show horses, kept as pets for personal use by the wealthy. For those who like a flutter, horses can be a joy and a curse. Pawns of the gambling industry, these horses are bred solely to race. With such a wide scope of career paths, it’s no wonder that the horse is held in such high regard. These are proud, magnificent beasts, and they deserve our respect.
A Horse and a Boy

Horses And The Way They Are

This is poem is all about horses and what I once saw on an ordinary day at the stables. This poem is also dedicated to my horse, Cookie.

Ocean Poems

Oceans cover more than two thirds of the earth’s surface and contain more than 95% of the earth’s water, and yet their vastness is their least impressive feature. Life on earth began in the ocean, and there it continues to thrive. Conservatively, there are hundreds of thousands of species living in our oceans, and we continue to find more every day. The oceans also play a vital role in regulating the temperature of the earth, absorbing solar heat and redistributing it around the world. As much as they give life, oceans are also a source of fear for many, and are frequently used to depict isolation.
Ocean Secrets

This was written while on a trip to the ocean with my youngest sister. This was a time of healing for my soul. I hope you enjoy it, and can use it to fit into your own life to bring about healing.

Ocean Fresh

This poems about the ocean being mistreated by humans and we need to stop and make changes.

Rain Poems

Depending on where you live in the world and what you do for a living, you will have a very different opinion on rain from others. In some countries, rain is the great facilitator of life. Not just for drinking water for people and the wildlife, but for farmers who need rain to grow their crops. Rain is vital for the cycle of life. However, in other countries where there is no shortage of rainfall, it is seen as nothing more than an inconvenience. Even worse, recent heavy rainfall has resulted in severe flooding and deaths. In this way, rain can be seen as both the giver and the taker of life.
The Art of Rain

A cute little poem about the art of rain.

Tree Poems

Trees have always been a source of inspiration for people around the world. From the tiny glimmer of hope signified by a tiny sprout in the ground, to the resilient mighty oak standing alone after a storm. Trees not only grow with us, but can often stay standing when we become nothing but a memory etched into their bark. One person can look at a tree and see life; another sees death. Where one person sees strength, another sees vulnerability. Trees give us life, and their influence on us is never more apparent than in poetry.
A Tree For Julian

I am a retired executive secretary. When I retired, we relocated from beautiful Northern California to beautiful East Tennessee. The amazing beauty of our entire country inspires me to try to create poetry which will "paint pictures in words". I hope others will see the beauty all around

Tree, Dear Tree

My name is Jonathan, and I'm in the 6th grade. I wrote this poem for a class last year. My mom thought it would be a good idea to place this poem on the net. I love trees a lot and I hate to see them ever cut. For all the tree lovers out there, this poem is dedicated to you.

A Tree Is Like Our Mother

I have written this poem to share you my opinion about trees. I wanted to ask everyone why are they devouring trees like a hungry devil. Please join your hands together to save trees.
