I Am Resting On A Soft White Cloud.

Updated on August 1, 2013

This afternoon I took a walk down to the riverside and felt a serenity so strong and as I nestled deeper into Mother Nature's bosom I began scribbling away and this is what transpired.

Source

I am resting

on a soft white cloud

blown away by the breezes of life...............................


I see soft carpets of green

nature's sweet abundance

dewdrops of wonder..........................................


Young children playing

with carefree joy

wearing daisy chains

no mind games no ploy....................




I float by

to enjoy

the approaching gardens of hope

small green patches

clinging onto the receding river banks

but fruitful to the core.........

Dividing bleakness and light.............

In the sudden enveloping mist

I am transported

back to a land

of green ..

Each tree and hedgerow a shelter

to each bird and the musical magical wildlife..........


a ripple of sweetness tells its story

to mellow the tides of bleak times;

a sweetness tells its story

of truth and strength.

Learn to balance.

Source

Lets move in unison

into tomorrow;

a future

that is ours to keep;

full of brightness

and

of joy

in

unlimited quantity.

Material wealth

cannot compete

with the love

that throbs

and

radiates

from our

hearts.

Our future

ours

to taste

and

explore.

A heart so full

A soul so ready.

Take my hand and follow me.

Walk into a peaceful tomorrow.

Source

I hope you enjoyed this hub and here's wishing you all a great day.

Eddy.

      Eddy, it's been too long since I've wandered thru Mother Nature's glory for inspiration. What has happened to me? She has always been my inspiration. I need to remedy the situation, don't I? I wish I had the glorious landscape you have available to you. I'll just have to make do with walking my neighborhood for now.

      Thank you for this. You've rekindled my love for Mother Nature and all her glory!

      Well it was so nice of HubPages to allow this, although I'm a bit surprised they didn't find something controversial in the message. :)

      Beautiful as always my friend. I've been on a white cloud for seven years now and it is quite peaceful and loving there.

      love,

      billy

      Beautiful work Eddy. I like the way you narrowed the lines as the poem concluded. It was like coming in for a soft, floating, landing.

      Funny it had been a long time since I really looked at clouds, yet the day before yesterday I found myself doing so, and enjoying it greatly. Your poem also has taken me back to those childhood years when I laid in a hay field looking up at the sky and in visioning objects and special shapes in the clouds.. Really nice write!!!!
