A little piece of greenery

There is a portion of my day,
Were I anchor in a way.
Walk among the daffodils.
Listen to the whippoorwills.

Were tribute is a non exist,
With roads and paths that do not twist.
The sky is blue and air is clean.
And only I am on the scene.

Were everything is at its best,
And nothing is put to test.
Were music lays upon the breeze,
Without cacophony or wheeze

It's either peace I found at last,
Or old age just making fast.
But either or I do not care,
At least there is a place out there.

A little place of greenery,
A little shade beneath a tree.

Sy,
There's nothing finer to extol
Than finding peace within the soul
A place to rid the daily stress
And bring you inner happiness
Sometimes that very special place
Is sitting right before your face
It isn't just what it might be
But rather what you care to see
At times the spirit is set free
By a little piece of greenery
So may you spend the rest your days
Filled with peace in many ways
More peaceful is my spirit now
Than ever was, it's strange somehow
That it would take this long to see
A little piece of greenery
Exquisite poem, and soothing, too
Love ya,
Liz

Seymour-

Lyrically lovely.
A place to seek.
You've put to paper
words that speak.

May you find the greenery
of life beneath a shaded tree.
A little bit of relaxation,
causing you, no vexation.

Ah, of such are stories told,
life how I love you
as I grow old.

~*Marge*~

Sy, beautiful. It's that "one particular harbor," I suspect.

I love this. The picture you painted is awesome.

What a lively sort of peace that is. I earnestly wish there was a tree with that shade in the middle of the country. A lovely secret spot you've found, there.

This piece I read way up there
Leaves me to be believe this place is somewhere
I believe you know
As you have written such picturesque show
I could not paint this scenery better than your presentation
You filled hearts with relaxation

 The ability to describe life with words is similar to painting a picture; both can be powerful tools.

I know a place in my mind just like that
in feeling.  Very lovely Sy!

 In the dew of little things,
the heart finds its morning
and is refreshed.

We all need that little place! Very lovely, Sy!

Indeed lovely!  There's nothing better than being alone in nature, wether it be for real or simply within your mind, huh?  Great work!

Like a gust of wind, ne'er trapped in a snare,
Like a lotus blossom, ne'er sprinkled by water,
Let me, like a unicorn, in solitude roam.*~ Hymn Of Buddha

Sy - this is a touch of beauty, this is.
It glows like the scenery you describe...if only all the world was like this!

(I'm wondering - I'm a bit confused by your 'were's' - are they meant to be 'where's? I can read them as both - if you have done something clever with the grammar - which I like!  )
