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

The Past Mild Winter, Nothing Now but a Distant Mem’ry.

Welcoming Mother Nature’s Insistence that Buds and Green-

-Start Ushering in a New Season Some Five Weeks back.

A Sun Drenched Gravel Walkway,

My Eyes Fixed Upon an Upright Clock at the Path’s Cross-

-Which Starts to Fade from a Distant Place.

A Start of Many Wandering Daydreams that Caress My Mind.

Syncopated Pitter-Patterings of The Local Runners Stomping Feet Upon Gravel Mixed

in with the Songs of  Anxiously Chirping Birds, and Chattering Squirrels Ever at Play in The Surrounding Trees.

A Once Damaged Spirit, Slowly being Revived and Recovered,

 in Only How Nature, In all of Her Exquisite Glory Could Possibly Provide.
