Natural speed please
Nature poems that lack detail, precision and objectivity run the risk of being dismissed as cliche and forgettable.
So how can you tone up your perception muscle?
Besides learning the names of plants and animals, consult encyclopedias,
field guides and books to discover and understand nature’s processes.
Read what other writers and naturalists have written.
Take courses and join organizations like naturalist and bird-watching clubs.
Then include some of this detail in your poems.
