Delighting In Mother Nature For The Moment

I peer out into the valley below
calm and serene the mood.
Mother Nature’s beauty is getting
ready to unleash its  vast
personalities.

Heavy dense for settles at the
lowest points, the rain has
subsided and the sediments drop
in unison off all that may
have height.

The song birds chatter of the
storms passing and announce
the plentiful bounty blessed
by it.

The fawn in all her spender
strolls paths warn from
yesterdays gone by.

The larger of the feathered  
species are perched fine-tuning
there plumage  readying
them selves for flight.

Off in the distance a dog
barking, it echoes through
the valley becoming fainter by
the moment until gone
its reminder.

I sit peaceful and rested,
my gaze not fixed on anyone
thing, absorbing the tranquillity
so freely offered.

Totally in awe at the beauty
all around me, so much
so it brings tears of jubilation
to my soul.

Knowing that like all of Gods
creatures for the moment  
finding delight in the sheer
beauty that nature provides
we all have our own destinations
as time does not stand still.

So this brief moment of joy
and thankfulness is now ending,
I have placed its memory in
my heart so as to return in times
needing uplift.

Never do I bid farewell to
Mother Nature’s gifts
completely for I carry a multitude
of treasured moments, for this is
what sustains me .

Seems that you are doing more than just smelling the roses. "A multitude of treasured moments".  What life is all about.
Beautifully written Cerenity.


 A life isn't significant except for its impact on other lives.

Cerenity~
You've been touched by
the refreshing muse of Spring.
It's a wonderful thing.
Loved the serenity of this.

Cerenity,
         may i suggest running wild through the valley yelling at the top of your lungs. . . "THIS IS A BEAUTIFUL DAY!!!!!!" and then rolling down a hill or two?  

Excellent poem, my friend. . .
