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

An Enclave of Nature

by brian francis

Watching the ducks as they float on the breeze
The reflections like carnival mirror’s – bare trees
The pond surface ripples because of the winds
Until those spectacular landings begin
Veering left or veering right or just settling down
And gliding through the water, swimming around
Ponds in the park the edge of nature’s delights
Filled with people by day and solitary at nights
A small enclave of nature found around those ponds
Like the nest among the edges beneath the fronds
An honor to Gaea a great cathedral if you might
A place to embrace her and her good healing light
