Unexpected Beauty and Dreams.

Once more My River called;

By its side I walked and dreamed.

The pigeons were there,

There in abundance.

Watching me walk,

Walk through their domain,

Flying up to the trees

As I approached them.

Then the dream struck me,

What if I could fly with them

And fly into the sky,

Away from the ills of this earth,

Dreaming of places of peace and wonder.

I was pulled back,

Realising that at this moment there was peace,

Peace and wonder in my life

As I walked with My River.

Gently, quietly, in harmony

In harmony with both My River

And My Spirit.

My Spirit that was always with me,

But so much more apparent

As I walked by My River.

I passed a large growth of nettles

But there in their centre,

The wonder of Nature was shown

Three beautiful daffodils shone,

Shone in the sunlight,

Showing me that even in tragedy

Wonder and beauty can shine through.

    Good write. I saw a daffodil growing in a compost heap. Not a huge heap of manure, as it was in our garden!

      Thanks Orchi, use your compost wisely.

    • Fay Slimm.

      Such an upbeat feel of positive vibes in this poem my friend.

      • Goldfinch60

        Thank you Fay, I always try to look for the positive in life.

        Great positive message. Not only in nature but also in cities - I love to look up and see the brilliant architecture we have - and then when I look down and see everyone else walking along looking blankly straight ahead or even down at the ground quite oblivious of what is there.

        • Goldfinch60

          I too look up, even in nature there is so much to see but many people just do not look. Thank you Michael.

          Really lovely poem
          Those where you
          Think I'm them
          I find really remarkable
          I've woke up with poem
          in my head from that
          Type of dream...
          Well done GF60
