I decided to respond to this prompt, from DVerse poets,  about writing a “postcard poem.” This is a poem that could fit on a postcard (a maximum of 12 lines) and is written as if it were a postcard to someone. Today, I spent some time in the arboretum and highly enjoyed the sun, flowers, butterflies, plants, and nature in general, so that experience inspired this poem.

The trees provide their gentle shade,

A respite from the heat of day,

Then, walking along the dirt path,

I drink up a lovely view:

Pink, orange, yellow flowers of every hue;

A small stream which brings

Life-giving water with its babblings;

And tall stalks of bamboo.

Through them I peer, imagining,

And wishing I could see you.
