Free Verse: When I Feel

A free verse poetry, “When I Feel.”

Emotions can be like nature, tempered by changes. Such as the seasons change from summer to fall, or we have changes in our lives. These changes can bring on feelings, happiness, anger, sadness, and love. A little free verse poetry and digital art piece to brighten your Monday!

When I Feel

When I Feel

I don’t know if any living thing is perfect.
When I am sad
I don’t cry; tears pour from eyes.
Like a tree going through changes of seasons.
Leaves fall.

When I am happy; a smile glows from my face.

Is this of the flowers when the sun
gives a warm embrace.
When I am angry; yelling is not for me.
I don’t yell; I burn.
Like a tree struck by lightning. When I resolve.

I talking quietly, softly like a spring breeze whispering to nature,

Come let’s grow together.
Of these extremes in feelings
When I love, I love completely.
Giving my love wings like an eagle,
I soar wild into a blue.

What is a Free Verse Poetry? Typically patterned by speech rather than meter, this form of poetry is very open to the author’s discretion and usually does not rhyme. Visual and sound effects are often employed.  It can have as many lines as the writer wishes.

  1. Thank you for the thought provoking post. Once we grasp our imperfectness (if there is such a word) we glean a sense of our perfectness. It’s counter intuitive, but in grasping it, we free ourselves from the struggle of trying to be like a beautiful sunrise or sunset, a brilliant rainbow, or an eagle soaring, carefree overhead. Ray
