Dakotah Lavender

Close Your Eyes

Close your eyes and picture,

The breeze light and warm.

Close your eyes and picture,

A towering snow capped form.

 

Close your eyes and picture,

The grass tickling as it sways.

Close your eyes and picture,

Fragrant flowers beneath sun rays.

 

Close your eyes and picture,

The sound of a brook whispering.

Close your eyes and picture,

A story it tells as you're listening.

 

Close your eyes and picture,

Birds singing soft as a yawn.

Close your eyes and picture,

A doe licking her new fawn.

 

Close your eyes and picture,

The the world like this at peace.

Close your eyes and picture,

A life of enjoyment and ease.

    Thanks DAKOTAH for sharing a very beautiful poem extolling the joy and beauty of nature. Repetition is important in classical poetry. I love the fact that you have repeated ~ CLOSE YOUR EYES AND PICTURE ~ as the 1st and 3rd line of each perfect quatrain and also that you have rhymed love 2 & 4 ~ A perfect poem in both structure and subject. I say to myself ~ what a wonderful World ! Thanks for caring & sharing ~ BRIAN.

      Beautiful write, all life can be wonderful and closing your eyes and looking at it enhances the pleasure we can see.

        It is nature that everyone should appreciate more and not money and who is better than the other. It's quite unsettling, but this is a happy place indeed.

        Very gentle. Beautifully written. ".... soft as a yawn" excellent. I enjoyed it a lot.
