About the Poem

This poem I wrote as the result of just being in Nature's beauty.

Lost In Thought

Pleasant sitting in the shade.
Letting the day slip away.
Slight breeze keeps the heat at bay.

A small lizard on a rock,
looks at me through beady black-eyes,
and in a flash it’s gone.

A sparrow lands on a nearby branch,
it’s head bobbing up and down as it watches me.
I laugh out loud, and the bird takes flight.

Such beautiful country,
Air cleaner, sweeter the sky more blue.
Soon you find yourself escaping deeper,
Surrendering.

Shutting out the world.
Sitting there motionless.
As your spirit is set free.
