Mushrooms and meadows
Sunshine and shadows

Gentle ripples on the calm river
Foaming rapids in white water

The jungle echoes in the semi-darkness
while daylight creepy-crawlies clear the mess.

Peasants toiling and pheasants scratching
as I spy a cricket somersaulting

The cactus the desert's prickly femme-fatale
elsewhere a lone leaf floats in the canal

Prairie dogs go popping
while hares go hopping
and ladies go shopping

Swans have formed a V-line
The flora too is divine
as bees swarm in bee-line.

Seista seizes birdlovers too
Thus they miss out on the hoopoe's song
For the hoopoe, it does not sing on cue
since a bird may sing anytime to woo.

What a medley eh of scenery
Murky eve and dawning greenery

Ah, wherever you go nature's so panoramic
While we make and take pictures
God made what's picturesque!

    I like the mental picture i get from this photo, gives me a warm feeling. I feel like they words almost have a trippy, kinda indie rock feel to them. Good write!

    I so love your take on nature all through out your poem, prairies dogs and cactus paint such a vivid memory of the American desert and plains, such a gentle, vivid poem filled with amazing imagery...Bravo my friend! Mel

      My warmest thanx pal, soo glad to know it depicts american scenery too. I wrote what I watched as in TV documentaries. The cactus was in the Gobi desert.
      Take care.
