Water cascading down the mountain slope,
glistening, reflecting the sun’s amber glow,
peaceful tranquility encouraging one’s hope,
snow melting crystals filling the stream below,
Valley of wild flowers with grass luscious green,
inviting one’s spirit to enjoy the heavenly scene,
evergreens tall and erect standing so serene,
deer grassing in the meadow proud and lean.
A warm gentle breeze fills the unpolluted air,
possessing a fragrance with a sweet floral scent,
surrounded by nature’s beauty without a care,
as a mighty bald eagle soars, making its’ descent.
Deep in the forest away from the busy city street,
land of enchantment, ecstasy delight, such a dream
no longer plagued by the sounds as lost souls weep
a place absent of malice and hearts that are mean.
A simple world, if only man could comprehend,
so placidly designed to last the test of time,
not a place for greed or hate or to even pretend,
for nature’s rapture induces your celestial prime.
