Nature Captured

cool summer morning
fresh smell of earth carried in by the breeze through the window opening
delights the nostrils

hand reaching to draw the curtain
then feeling for a water bottle kept on the window sill
the first of each day’s fuels

the bed – not yet ready to climb out of
so a one person peek-a-boo play
o, just look how the godly light shines through
the subtle misty sky… wooo!

mountains in the distance obscured
and yet, still such a spectacular view
nature’s majesty and might
the closest thing to truth

green grass covered playground with morning dew
a gaggle of Egyptian geese gathered along the rill
where water from the Diep flows through

inspiration sprinkles
making the mind fertile too
fragments of a forgotten childhood
and all the memories one can’t seem to quite hold on to reveal volumes
of emotions in the unconscious
eh, who said lost love is untraceable?
