Ode to Earth


Oh Earth, you are such a blessing to us all.

From North to South and East to West,

You offer us variety from summer to fall.

Views that inspire and catch our interest.

From the rainbow of hues that saturate your skies

The the colors gracefully fade into stars so bright

Shining down upon the waters, oh do they gleam!

Your fields of flowers equal Angels breathing sighs.

Magical creatures roaming both day and night.

This map of your beauty should never go unseen.

Word prompt, map.

Poetic form, ode.

Poetic device, metaphor.

Ode writing was hard for me. I researched some more info on them and found a Horatian Ode pattern of a,b,a,b,c,d,e,c,d,e so I tried that for the challenge of it. Not sure this is my favorite, but it was worth a try.
