BEAUTY IN THE FIELDS ...

 
Driving AROUND the mountain
at the END of summer is 
a real FEAST for the eye ... 
 
The fields, 
embroidered with WILD flowers, 
look like a GIANT tapestry ... 
 
A MEDDLEY of mauve AND ochre 
AND moss green AND grey and gold ... 
And it SMELLS as good as it looks ... 
Of hay AND damp herbs 
AND sunbaked petals AND dried seed pods ... 
 
 And it SOUNDS like SEPTEMBER 
with crickets singing AND crows talking 
AND water in the stream running 
AND black and white cows mooing ...
 
I THINK I will lay UNDER that colorful NATURE fuzzy blanket 
and SNOOZE through the COLDER months 
ahead of us ...
