In a field of wildflowers

I feel touched by God

As if heaven descended

upon this forgotten earth


The sky is a perfect blue

Well, you know the kind

This place untarnished 

Awarded to no person


Time crawls by here

as I take in the aroma

And the bounty of color

I leave them, wild and free

      A fine Write Christina.
      Aww, I tried free verse - why did they reply it's a load of hot air from me! heehee.
      Yes, I know some places too - bit like jungles this time of year with the greenery. I battled through thorns and thistles, and near-overgrown paths - but tended by people to make them passable for all of us.

        Thanks Orchidee! Aww...I bet your free verse is stunning!--Christina

        Lovely picture you create in my minds eye.

        Personally i find rhyme rather limiting because it reduces my available vocabulary. Often on MPS i see pieces in which the rhyming has made a mockery of a deep subject. Far better for me to just write what i feel though i will often use rhyme, but not exclusively in a regular pattern. I guess i make up 'rules' as i go. But each to their own, i'm not criticising, rather i'm sharing my personal view with you.
