Sequoia

By Fee Stevens, Poet, Creative Collaborator, Wellbeing Australia Professional Member, Blue Mind Ambassador

The sequoia tree is an evergreen and one of the tallest trees on the planet.

The story of the mysterious and giant sequoia is spellbinding and inspired my collection.

In this “Unearthed” series I have crafted unique poetry. The scent of nature, an open fire and hot coffee brewing just adds to it and makes a winter wonderland dream come true.

POET’S PLAYGROUND

In winter there is reason for poetry this season,

at Christmas time in June not a sigh in the room,

with snow all around – inbound, surround, newfound,

unearthed, safe and sound – a poet’s playground!

On this World Environment Day, June 5, 2021, it’s a good day to encourage action to protect our environment. AND be very thankful for our beautiful Australian home. There’s nothing better than winter in Australia and poetry to make you feel grateful.

RIVER OF CINNAMON

River of cinnamon, russet and bronze

birds of the forest burst into song

with duty, their beauty truly belong

return to the earth – happy yearlong.

THE WINTER EDIT

Layer up this season,

with rhythm, rhyme and reason

cozy rugs for pleasing,

warmth for wellbeing

a movie now it’s freezing,

a throw for when you’re feeling,

like cuddling and snuggling –

staying in all evening.
