River Beauty

Post  Sue McDonald on Tue Feb 21 2012, 07:55



Sitting at the marina early in the morning
late past midnight artistically dawning
colours of the sky unfolding by the minute
purples pinks and yellow a heavenly pallette

Early morning mist along the banks does drift
reeds and wildlife revealed as it starts to lift
Wood ducks wild ducks every where around
siting tight on their nest hardly making sound

Kookaburras laughing as the wrens twist and turn
Ravens in the willows watching out for worms
Peace and tranquility surrounding riverglen
until speedboats and kneeboarders come flying round the bend

Kookaburras silent their discovery they now fear
as people in the water charge around and cheer
River wrens return to their nests to sit and hide
as the wild life on the river yearns for quite time

Evening in its glory returns with glowing sun
people with their boats and boards return to where their from
Kookaburras war cry rings around the trees
as the river wrens and raven twist and play in breeze

You've written a poem that captures my heart, and your photo looks as though it might have been taken at my boyhood home in Maryland. I love the natural images and characters you use to tell your story. Very well done. Thanks for sharing. Like a Star @ heaven Like a Star @ heaven Like a Star @ heaven

Aw Sue, The river one of my favourite places to be sitting on the banks or floating on a boat and moving slowly through the countryside. The sounds, smells (sometimes with manured fields Pooooo) and sights love it all.
The poem says it all very good Sue. Like Like red star red star sunny
