My writing challenge turned into a poem

Ok so my first attempt was very simple thoughts with no flow or editing. my aim was to personify the nature. making it feel more alive, more real.

The leaves turn a golden glow as the light falls down on them, warming them and making them grow reaching greedily for more light.
The sun does not distinguish between plant or weed but shines on all.
The branches sway slightly, dancing in the sunlight.
Trees in the distance create a golden brown border ending the horizon abruptly. The field in front seems still in slumber. Its rough texture shows a more natural view with clumps of grass growing higher than others
The sky is such an endless plain blue that lifts you higher into its depths. It is a welcoming, calming blue that even the birds song is hushed. The wind moves in defiance against the calming blue. It makes the trees dance and sway and and sends the grass rippling in delight. The wind wants to play and rush around but most of nature is quite and calm, luxuriating in the rare sunlight.

After a little tweaking and editing I now have a poem but I’m unsure what to call it. please help! below is the poem (thou it may still need tweaking and perfecting)

The sun fixes its gaze upon the leaves, casting them in a golden glow, warming them and beckoning them towards its light.

The sun does not distinguish between plant or weed but shines on all.

The sky is such an endless plain blue, lifting you higher into its depths. It is a welcoming, calming blue that even the birdsong is hushed. The wind moves in defiance against the calming blue. It makes the trees dance and sway and sends the grass rippling in delight. The wind wants to play and rush around but most of nature is quiet and calm, luxuriating in the rare sunlight.

The branches shiver in joy, dancing with the light. The field rests in a quiet siesta; the hushed birdsong becomes its lullaby.

I plan to do more poems and writing exercises to hopefully improve. let me know what you think 🙂
