A Feeling To Remember

I walked across the pasture green
In search of something yet unseen
And as I reached the hill's crest
What I saw below I felt truly blest.

I very carefully made my way down
Toward the little grove of trees I'd found
Anxious to see what they did hide
I gently pushed the brush aside.

The atmosphere did suddenly change
The green canopy kept the heat away
As And the coolness settled round
 I heard the birds chirping sound.

A movement to my right caused fear
Not quite sure of what was near
Until his antlers I did see
And realized he wasn't sure of me.

As I gazed into his eyes
I thought I heard him breathe a sigh
And as I smiled and stepped past
It seemed to put his mind at rest.

In shafts of light scattered here and there
Wild flowers could be found
Dancing on the gentle breeze
Spreading pollen all around.

I sat beside a flowing river
In grass of carpet green
Soon the little lady bugs
Were resting on my jeans.

A hefty branch protruded
From the river's edge
And as I watched ten little turtles
Found themselves a place to rest.

As they basked in the sun
They seemed so at peace
Until a pesky magpie
Dive bombed them from a tree.

As I watched natures wonders 
I heard a shrill scream.
Suddenly I realized I am all alone
I reached into my pocket 
And took out my cell phone.
