Big Tent Poetry Prompt

Big Tent Poetry's weekly prompt inspired this poem, which includes a line form Robert Browning's poem, Among the Rocks

No Worries
by Laurie Kolp

Oh, good gigantic smile o’ the brown old earth,
this autumn morning!

Must not you worry ‘bout a thing
Of this material world so greedy;
Rest thine eyes on nature’s beauty,
Its wonderment will make you sing.

Like the cardinal that shrills on high
Or the rhythmic wave of a cool breeze,
Warming timbers your senses please,
Red, orange, yellow against blue sky.



*Oh, good gigantic smile o’ the brown old earth,
this autumn morning!
~Robert Browning’s “Among the Rocks”

Beautiful! Quite similar to the experience I had this morning on my hike in the lovely foothills of the Appalachians!
