My Wonderful World.

I walked through the woods

In harmony with natures glory.

I looked ahead and saw the beauty,

The beauty of the trees,

So many colours unseen by many,

But to me the wonder of nature

Coloured my life.

I looked up

And the light shone,

Shone through the branches

Sprinkling light throughout my life.

The wonder of nature’s art

Complemented by the sound,

The sound of nature’s symphony,

That music of life

Bringing glory to my world

Enough for me to write these words.

So my life is fulfilled,

Fulfilled with art,

With music,

And with words,

My Wonderful Life.


For Michael Edwards.

      Beautifully done Andy. I was reading Mary Oliver poems this morning.... I think you would like them. So much solace in Nature. Enjoy your English day......

      • Goldfinch60

        Thank you Lorna, I love walking with nature but do not have much chance at the moment due to Joyce’s dementia.

      • Michael Edwards

        Only just got round to reading todays postings and what a surprise - I feel really honoured. Thank you so much Andy for such a fine write about all that nature has to offer.

        • Goldfinch60

          My absolute pleasure Michael, you put the idea in my head so it had to come out.

        • Brycycle

          Very nicely written, there is a beautiful view of a field outside my window with a unique tree I’ve always found interesting. Nature is always peaceful to see and to hear

          • Goldfinch60

            Many things in nature pull one towards them, enjoy your tree.

            • Suresh

              The art of photography captures what the artists visualize, complementing each other, as do the words of your poem.

              I wrote a four liner on similar subject yesterday.

              • Goldfinch60

                Thank you Suresh, both artists and photographers SEE what is there in nature.

              • Fay Slimm.

                A beautiful idea of a walk which ends in a pictured collage - Michael will see colours in both your words and the exiting performance dear Goldy.

                • Goldfinch60

                  Thank you Fay. What more could one want than the glory of nature.
