Grandma's Acreage

Isis' Nature Challenge

No place in the world I would rather
be then standing back in time at my
grandmother's knee

In fields of green and apple trees
grandma's farm house was tucked
in between neatly as can be

Ten acres of country side where
deer loped and raccoons sneaked
the fresh spring water gurgling sweet

rubber boots we'd wear and hike
to the top of hill and watch
wheat blowing gently in the wind

lavender lilacs dwelled near the
golden daffodils - orange poppies
smiled at the gnarly pear trees

grass stains became part of our knees
sniffing sea air floating through the air
picking cherries off the cherry trees

watching grasshoppers making great hops
finding tree frogs on the side of the pond
grandma's is where my heart has always belonged

Though I live on five acres nearly the same
though the air smells of roses and evergreen
my favorite nature spot stays in my mind

For peace and tranquility where only nature talks
sits gently in my memories of childhood
to grandma's acreage, where she used to walk

Netswan, Grandma's Acreage sure sounds beautiful!!  To have the farm and the added bonus of sea air too!! Heaven!!!   How wonderful for you to have such special memories of her place and her.  
Wonderful work and thanks for sharing it with us.

 I'll tell you this...... No eternal reward will forgive us now for wasting the dawn.....

NetSwan~
What a lovely render.
Makes me all mushy with memories.
Sounds so enchanting ...
times remembered sweetly.

I don't venture into the challenge forum that often (imagine that , hmmm) but Teresa, I am certainly glad I did. Your grandma's acreage certainly sounds breath-taking

 All my love,
Jeffrey

I lie awake in a world filled with dreams,
but dreams can be so real when you don't know you're asleep
