I felt at peace that bright summer day

As I lay in the shade of the big oak tree

Listening to the whispering of the quiet brook

Softly treading its way to the wide open sea.

With the rustling of the leaves pushed by the soft summer breeze

whispering in my ear,

I watched in delight a delicate, golden winged butterfly

Flitting from Flower to flower in the cool open air 

And my heart then opened to the might of the Creator and the

Everlasting beauty of His display

 And  felt a touch of Heaven on that soft floor of leaves that bright

Summer day.

Very well penned. We should go there someday - if we are right with God.

Yes, nature is a touch of heaven, it's a shame too few realize it. I really liked the last line in this, makes the reader really visualize it.
