Sunday Photo

Within the wood, beneath the trees,
Alone I rambled in the spring
When softly said the passing breeze,
"Come listen the bluebells sing."
Then from the distance came a glow;
A bluish hue I did not know.

As I approached the bluish hue,
I heard the chimes of dainty bells
And saw the flowers bowed with dew
Imbue the air with their sweet smells.
It spread as far as I could see
Which set spirit soaring free.

I watched with awe their playful dance
As robins joined the sing-along.
I was ignored; without a glance,
They filled the wood with their wild song,
Enrapturing the clouds above;
Enticing them crowd and shove.

And now sometimes alone at night
When sleep deserts weary eyes,
I still recall that splendid sight.
It fills heart with restless sighs
And brings life longing mood
once again walk in the wood.

Live today as if it is your last
For tomorrow will soon be in the past

Yes, it must have a comment to show up for others to see, unless they have you one their watched list, as I do. A patch of bluebells is a beautiful sight to see. We have them in our area, but often in places the farmers don't want them so the disappear under the plow in late spring.

If you expect nothing from anyone, you won't be disappointed, but you might be pleasantly surprised.

The picture is beautiful. I use to take a book and go down in the bottom where the trees were so pretty and just set there, read and enjoy the sounds. About four years ago I went down, my two big dogs with reading and the dogs laying in the sunshine. There was a big noise in some brush behind me and my dogs ran off and left me following. The wild hogs are plentiful around here so I haven't gone back. But I do miss it.

A nice and quiet place to retreat once in a while and let the soul speak in a poem.
Thanks for sharing, Lee.

Beautiful picture! Just the place for a long day retreat...Quietness...Silence... to hear God's voice in my inner self.
Nice poem too. Thank you Lee.
