Atop a hill amid swaths of soft green silky grass
Amid days of endless summer
I lie arms outstretched to the world
The gentle breeze blows my hair
and caresses my face like a lost love
The sky is a deep blue cerulean
framed by puffy clouds, the whitest of white
Oh how they enchant me with a soft parade of pictures
I am once again a child of wonder
and the lively Earth is my playground
Forever skipping, jumping, running
in flowered fields of delight
Kissing buttercups and sipping dew by the full moon
I am complete and whole
finding my rest in the boughs of tall trees
high atop a hill
flanked by swaths of soft green silky grass

You remind me of days as a child spent lying in the grass looking at the sky thru the tree branches. Thank you for a lovely memory. I love both words and pictures!
Hey Janet, I think I’m going to step inside that memory for a bit, thanks. It’s good to see you my friend!
That is so very beautiful Nancy. Conjures up such lovely images of being free of cares and worries…. Precious! 😀
Hi Cathy, This nice stretch of weather we are having is inspiring…I spent a lot of time outdoors as a child and those feelings of carefree happiness and innocence I carry with me deep inside. Beautiful days in late spring bring those feelings to the forefront. So very happy you enjoyed it. 🙂
Beautiful and inspiring post… 😉
Thank you Dear Drake! 🙂

If you’ve ever lived in the desert, you really know how to appreciate green! 😀
I went to Nevada once Gunta and upon my return to this wonderful green oasis we call Oregon I decided the desert was not for me. 🙂
We lived in Utah for 14 years. I truly missed the ocean and the green, but the Rocky mountains have their own beauty, too. I’m about to head out in that direction, perhaps I’ll bring back some pics to show you.
Please do! Your pics are amazing, you breathe a certain magic into them…
Have a good trip my friend! 🙂
