Since the moment I held a pencil I've been creating with drawings and words. I believe paintings enlighten and poems entice our audiences.
We call them wonders of the world and understandably so when we look out at nature in all its amazing glory. Take that walk each day to soak in the scents, warmth, and energetic refreshment of the outdoors.
The Great Outdoors
Soft whispers of cotton clouds
Entice the skies above
Colorful in their majestic stance
Peaceful as an inner spirit
They dance above the mountain-tops
Binoculars to a scenic view.
A chime is heard throughout the herd
Animals interpret their valuable words
They watch like owls in hawkish manners
A cue to rummage to guarded stances
To protect, honor, and cherish
The breath of life they hold so dear.
The mosaic patterns of rocks
Stand rigid along a protective front
Like soldiers ready to guard their land
To shelter various varieties of patrons
From furry to reptilian to aviators in flight
Through the repetitious seasons of time.
The air is crisp in scented delights
A breeze so soft escapes on by
A brush of sensory wonder
Tranquility captures each strand of fiber
Nature in its natural magnificence
A known truth, which man can never imitate
A known truth, which man can never replace.

You have captured the essence of nature in this wonderful poem Mary. I love the last two lines which sum it up for me. I can see myself in your painting canoeing on the river. Lovely images poet.
