Saturday’s View of Churchill Woods


Bright Sun

Dancing Between Lazy White Pillowed Clouds

Atop Blue Skied Canvas

Rays of Brilliant Light, Reflecting Off the Gentle Lapping Water’s Hidden Currents

Bullfrog, Centerstaged on Lillypad

Watches on as Whimsical Dragon Flies Skim Water’s Surface

Canadian Geese Chasing after the Promise of Stale Bread

as Human Observers Crunch Crabgrass Underfoot, Binoculars in Hand

The Poison Ivy Winds It’s Way Up The Mighty Oak, in Shadowed Canopies

as the Cardinals, Wayward Blue Jays, and Smallish Sparrows Trade Songs

Warm Summer Breeze, Wildflowers, Daisies, and Dandelions Dance along Forested Edges

Mother Nature in all Her Summer Glory, Weeks Away from Coming to a Close

as the Days of Fall Inch Closer Still

  1. Oh, the imagery in this one is GREAT! 🙂 In that first, lovely picture, it looks like Fall is already starting to show in your neck of the woods. The only thing in this poem which tripped me up was the repetition of the word “brilliant” so closely together.

    “Brilliant Blue Sky

    Rays of Brilliant Light,” My brain wanted that second “brilliant” to be something else. But other than that small nit-pick, this one is definitely a winner, imho. 🙂

  2. dragonkatet,


    I Use The Pics from WordPress, I Should Really Just Used My Own Photos.

    I’m Going to Look Into Subbing for Brilliant, Thank You for Your Time and Honesty!

    That Brilliant Feels Now to be a bit ‘Clunky’…..

  3. beautiful write … could feel the sense of the area. sorry haven’t come by much, have not been feeling well and hoping to do a little better now….

    • Thank You.

      E, You Take Care of What You Have To and What is Most Important.

      Give Me Green, Trees, Waterways, Nature-Stuffs and I’m a Happy Camper.
      It Is is Where I Find My Peace…..Whether It be 95 Degrees F or 10.

      Take Care…..LenG
