Countryside

Posted on Updated on

Cruising through the country side
Breathing country air
Old barns have given up the ghost
But you know, the charm’s still there.

Might see a cow ‘long side the road
A sheep herd passing through
Cowboys riding on horseback
Herd dogs are barking too.

Open space and dreams undone
Keep calling out to me
The history and the beauty
Are there for us to see.

Countryside Path

Posted on Updated on

My hand ensconced in yours
your eyes lost in mine
and colours are more alive
the sun more passionate
the moon gentler
our smiles softer
and our path so mesmerisingly inviting
as our dawn-ecstasy beckons
and leads our footprints in concert
through the glorious day
into the delicious privacy
of our sweet-on-the-tongue
melting-dusk.

Beautiful Countryside

Posted on Updated on

Peace and calm enfold me
As I leave city life behindn
The hustle and the bustle
Fade far from my mind

Driving out into the country
I can’t help but smile within
Though I know not what awaits me
I am eager to begin

Such beauty all around me
I feel it touch me deep inside
This ever changing landscape
A constant feast for my eyes

How many shades of red
Is it possible to see
As mile after mile
Vibrant earth surrounds me

The wonder of the salt lakes
Which appear when least expected
The ranges all around them
Perfectly reflected

How I love this country side
This land that I call my home
If you feel it as I do
You will never be alone.
