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.

Walking Along The Countryside

Posted on Updated on

Walking along the countryside
In the dead of night
I realize that Autumn is here
Tonight’s chilly
But I’m hiding under a cloak as I walk

The trees seem to be scary
Even a little bit eerie
As they continue to lose their leaves
One by one
But they’re a wonder to me
A somewhat majestic display of beauty

Up in the sky
The harvest moon shines
I smile at it
As it shines down on me

The cornfield has been cut down
And it’s deserted all around
The only residents in the field now
are ravens and crows
Hearing them cackle is quite a sound

In the distance
I see a scarecrow
He may not be as warm as me
But there’s a lot of things at times
like this that he knows
Like the weather and the night

Be my guide
See me through the night
Show me the way tonight
My friend

The time continues to flow
And ever onwards I go
Walking along the countryside on this
night surrounded in autumnal beauty
And the mystery of the night
