Surrounded by Nature

A Lake in the Hills

The waters are calm and bright

in the glorious sunlight

Among the trees

I feel the breeze

on this beautiful day.

I see a wild flower or two

makes me feel like taking off my shoes.

There are more dainty flowers that are in view__

colorful flowers, not afar off.

On this splendid day

I'm so glad that I came

to be by the lake in the hills.

Rest in the Valley

In the Valleys are carpets of flowers

I go to nestle there

With me I take a picnic lunch

cheese and crackers and fresh fruit

I'm thinking of staying a while.

When the sun shines over the valley

the air is clear and calm.

The skies are blue with white fluffy clouds

I love this glorious place!

A place to rest a while__

to replenish your joy and peace.

I feel so at ease, as I'm sitting there

and sometimes I even lay down.

That Beautiful Sea

Suddenly, I feel young and free

when walking by the sea

It's beckoning me to come again

of that peace I know no end

Yes truly the sea is my best friend.

When I walk along those shores

my heart longs for even more.

What a wonderful sight

I feel so light__

when I walk by that beautiful sea.

High on a Mountain

On the mountain high

I see such sights

from those glorious heights.

I see the valleys decked with flowers__

one is yellow with daises__

and the other is red with poppies.

They are spread like a beautiful carpet.

I see the eagles spread their wings

as they fly in the air.

All this beauty rare__

when I'm on the mountain up there.

Nature is Wonderful

This Day Like Heaven

The day is becoming soft and warm.

A light mist blows, as the pebbles beneath my feet are slightly cold.

A slight breeze whispers though the tall oak,

causing the leaves and the tall grass to sway in a rhythmic dance with the sun.

the sun is a brilliant orange and purple as it fades into the horizon.

I know the warm moisture in the air will soon dissipate into the day.

The birds are sweetly singing in a harmonic beauty.

Singing collectively, these wonderful creatures tell me they are just as much in love with the morning as I am.

The pathway is like a wave of serenity overflowing in my very soul.

it is so peaceful here.

As I take my time breathing deeply into a stress free dreamlike land.

my face floods with sunshine.

just absorbing every moment.

The intoxicating fragrance of the large mossy oaks

and vibrantly green and grassy forest give off an aroma incomparable to any perfume.

just close off the world,

shut out the noise,

and open your senses.

Ibis in the Park

The ibis in the park

are such a beautiful sight

They wander here and wander there

They are so pretty in flight.

For this reason I go to the park

It is so peaceful I could sing like a lark.

I have my lunch there at a quaint cafe...

all of this I would have to say

makes such a beautiful day.

Flight of the Eagle​

There's something regal about the eagle

as it spreads it's wings in flight

It glides in the air with such a flare

I think, oh what a marvelous sight!

It takes off from a branch of a tree

high upon a hill__

when it looks so still

my heart does thrill

What a wonder for me to see.

High in the air it does fly

flying for all to see.

Then it lands on the branch from whence it came_

and I'm just filled with glee!

Little Bees

The cutest little honey bees

they go from flower to flower

They linger here and linger there

these moments make you sigh and stare

Such a delicate sight

Then they take their flight

They're busy little bees
