The Artist Sees What Nature Holds

An anthology of poetry inspired by all that is natural


Where soulful energy, in nature, within
filled with soaring joy, searing pain, truths
awaiting that attuned, conscious, soul-ready mind.
— Leah J🕊


childhood

the place of pure being
where there is no stone to be seen here
no withered branch, no fallen leaves.
the whole of nature / breathes in peace
when there is joyful innocence and life.
— Friedrich with Leah J.

nature is the soul of things

the divine is everywhere,
even, a grain of sand
the artist’s feeling
genuine, never contrary to nature
the artist, poet, the writer, the creator
should not only paint/write/create what is received by the senses
but especially that which she imagines, intuits, envisions to be.
— Leah J🕊

within find the vital force

from angst, the world, with I, an empty vessel yet full with that which is sad

yet, there is also, to be deeply sourced within / 
a beauty awaiting realization
such is a vital force nature offers to reconcile with
 and see the connections within and then recognize those beyond
nature, within 
is all nature, all is consciousness, all is soul.

— Leah J🕊

the renaissance of the nature of my soul

i am here for all to see
in my bones
there’s dignity, i will fight 
for them
i can say that i can 
change the world,
but, if you let me, i will make
my world
stand tall 
let me show you
on last time
let me show you
one last sign, i can
see, it, all

— Buonvino

light songs of the lark

through the gloomy clouds break
blue sky, sunshine
on the heights and in the valley
sing the lark and the nightingale
— Friedrich

inspiration everywhere

in my mind, words and images
flow so I begin to write
as the visions transpire inspired by a visceral energy
music ….words ….the mind….nature
enact mood for those beings, images, words
wanting and ready, to receive, a renaissance 
rebirth, renewal, the awakening

— Leah J🕊
