Morning Reflection

Walking along the path

dew gleaming from the leaves

birds are singing

sun filtering through the trees

Sense of obstinacy in the air

as the cool breeze blows

squirrels fighting over acorns

as piles of leaves grow

Water flowing

in the nearby stream

calming my spirit

as if in a dream

Sitting on the porch

a group of deer come by

regal and majestic

taking a moment to say hi

Leaving some of the harvest

small payment to the land

blessed to be a part of nature

in a world so grand

  1. You describe perfectly where I live. It is what some might call a paradise… Great poem!
