Where The Ravens Roost

Where The Ravens Roost Together into the woods we hiked, Along the brown, leaf littered path, Beaten down by the many shoes before; Yet beneath our feet laid a fresh floor. At the edge, we became majestic eagle’s Feeling the wind, gazing into the ravine Over treetops fresh with green Down into the river flowingContinue reading “Where The Ravens Roost”

Dearest Forest

Dearest Forest, I’ve loved our time together, Shared adventures in all the weather. Being among your trees Listening To the wind rustle the leaves On warm summer days.

View Of The Pond Cloudless the serene, stained so blueFrom which the autumn sun gives a deceptive view.For the air is crisp across the ears and nose; Yet invigorating, awakening the senses, head to toes.In the pond, the luminous rays bathe,Painting with crystals, all in good faith.Each jewel crested ripple is hurried alongBy the unceasing windContinue reading “View Of The Pond”
