My Place of Dreams.

I walk along the path towards the lake,

There it is in front of me,

The burnished sun reflecting from it stillness.

I look across it and see the green life around the water,

That green slowly turning to gold,

With the occasion orange turning red.

The mirror images of the trees

Sweep across the mirror like surface

Showing me Nature’s wonder,

That wonder lives in my heart,

As Nature and I become as one.

Walking around that pool of iridescence

Reflecting the blue and white of the sky

I am now in my own world,

That world where Nature’s Glory

Moves within me,

And takes me to the place of my dreams.

      • dusk arising

        Lake placid eh? Being close to a body of water has a certain magic doesn't it.

        • Goldfinch60

          It certainly does have magic and it is only 10 minutes away.

          Place of dreams: Heaven? It brought that to my mind.

          I love "That world where Nature's Glory moves within me."

          Love this poem.
