Trees clad in vibrant emerald leaves dappled with golden sunshine

neath an azure sky with soft white clouds strewn across the heavens

in random fashion offer intermittent respite from the rays

of the sun in the sultry heat of a summer day...I find solace

 

In a peaceful meadow I sit beside a crystal clear stream

that sparkles like the richest of gems, as sunlight kisses each ripple

and the fresh scent of pine and birch infused with the fragrance

of wildflowers reaches into the deepest recesses of my soul...I feel alive

 

Sweet melodies, symphonies of Robins, Sparrows, Starlings

and brightly coloured finches in shades of yellow and crimson

play on the gentle breeze that lifts my spirit and carries it

into the forest to be part of all that really matters...I belong

 

Resting against Nature's welcoming breast

where feral lichens and mosses in shades of olive and jade

offer an earthy blanket upon which to lay my body down

so that I may feel connected to Mother Earth... I am free

Aren't the woods grand! Critters and greenery and birdsong. Lovely poetry. By the way, I had to buy some tick repellant. They like the woods (and me) too..:-) Patrick

I always enjoy your references the beauty of Nova Scotia in your poetry. I can't believe you would dislike warmth of summer. It will hit 94 today in Houston. Strangely, we have starlings and sparrows that stay here year-round and especially enjoy the water we put out on these hot days. Robins used to come by in the spring, but are no longer part of the scene. We saw a pair of house finches the other day and I found out that although they range all over the United States and parts of Canada, this is not their territory. I believe they were just passing through.

Wow. One of your best. It express your connection in stunning poetic fashion. Loved the refrain, I... But most importantly it made me feel the feeling and participate in the art that it took to create it. Subject, art, the artist and the reader=excellent piece.

Ahhh . . . You summed up this whole "living" thing, Anna, in this sweet poem. Congratulations! You are a stalwart.

Reading one of your poems that captures the essence of nature in all her glory resplendent in colors and sensual delights fit for a choir of angels singing in perfect accompaniment...I am thrilled.
