Verdant Reflections

by Brian Francis



It’s my favorite time – take a walk in the sunshine
Wet your feet in the ocean’s rolling waves
Sing your favorite song – sing without inhibition
Let the world hear just what you’ve got to say
Find a forest tall -- Take a stroll with the timber
See the speckled light as it is reaching down
In a river fresh – clean off that superior feeling
Remember we are part of Gaea’s loving plan
Lay your gifts humbly down beneath the great tree
Cherish the blessings of every breeze
And for the sky above-- that life-giving shining
Ra his name for eons or so they say
It’s my favorite time – take a walk in his sunshine
Living as thankfully as I can every day

Beautiful imagery. I was there with you in the forest viewing the speckled light. I love your exhortations: "Lay your gifts humbly down beneath the great tree / Cherish the blessings of every breeze" What poetry does for me is cause me to notice the little things of this earth. It seems to me that a poem is a special and unique way of noticing. That is what you do with your piece, Brian. Thanks so much.
