When I look outside my front window
There is nothing there to see
But, if I look outside my back window
There are so many trees

Aside from the trees out in the back
Are my two goats and my llama
The goats love to play with a sack
The llama acts like she is their mama

Sometimes you can see a squirrel
Running and playing on our shed
Alot of birds cover the yard
Some of them are even red

Then there are the abandoned dogs
Which my husband saw fit to bring home
One of which is going to be a mother
So there will be more to come

There is a canyon behind our house
Covered with so many, many trees
The canyon leads right to our pond
You can sit there and feel the breeze

When you open up the back door
All of the cats are there to eat
They jump up on the hand rail
Then they jump down on their feet

But, when you look out my front window
There is nothing there for me to see
Just a great big grassy pasture
Where all of the cows are running free

Nice description, Sue...
You have motivated me to write one of these also.

What beautiful scenery. Sure beats looking at tall buildings and dirty garbage.

How cool, to have a llama and goats. Cows are cool too. Farmer Sue, do you write poetry or sketch while you sit by the pond? I'll bet Titia would love to visit your neck of the woods.

WOW SmartChick, you've met my challenge beautiful.

When I close my eyes I see your backyard and all the things you've described. When I hit the jackpot I'll come over to visit you.

Oh WOW I'm dreaming of pastures and canyons tonight.

Thank you very much for letting me peek into your backyard.

Titia

Madame Chipmunk, I am glad you like it. Let me know when you write yours, so I can be sure and read it.

Silver Streak, I am glad you enjoyed it.

Midnitesun, I am too worried about snakes to be able to sit by the pond and write.

Titia, I am really happy that you like the challenge I did for you. This canyon isn't like the grand canyon, but a canyon is what they call it around here.
