Verdant Green

Johannesburg Country Club Garden 2013
















This lovely pastoral poem was written when I was living in England.  There's nothing quite as refreshing and calming as walking across and through English country fields and walk I most certainly did - as much as possible.  The photograph I've used is one I took of a garden I would never walk over but I loved the colours and star shapes of the flowers.  

On another matter altogether - have you visited Alex J Cavanaugh's blogs?  If not, you should.  He also runs the Insecure Writer's Support Group which is absolutely fabulous and a real life-saver when one gets the 'heebie Jeebies' about anything writing-related.  I don't know where Alex finds the time for everything he does for writers and bloggers but I will be forever grateful for that time.


Verdant Green

I walked among the stars today
In their sky of verdant green
Gold and white iridescence
Calmly relaxed, securely serene

I walked among the stars today
In wonder and in awe
Faces radiant, dazzling bright
Illuminated by a glow they adore

I walked among the stars today
Some shy, some brave, some keen
A union of splendour, sharing their sky
Yet each in its own right a queen

I walked among the stars today
Living, loving each moment in time
At once as finite as life itself
Time enduring - aeons overcome

I walked among the stars today
In their sky of verdant green
I walked within the stars
They, well they danced a dance within me

  1. That was beautiful! I've seen the English countryside and that places my mind there.
    Thanks for mentioning the IWSG! I'm glad it has made a difference to you.

  2. Lovely poem. I'll be walking through the English countryside in a few hours - after I catch a bit of sleep!

  3. Beautiful. I wish I were walking among the English countryside. It is beautiful in spring. It's pretty here too (Colorado), but our spring is usually short and we go quickly from very cold weather to very hot weather sometimes.
