As night creeps in

Night creeps in

How does one put it into words?
This beauty all around
This little camp in Pemberton
Such bliss there, I have found
I stand outside this tiny Chalet
Surrounded by green trees
As I melt into the song of life
And feel sweet mystery

I do not know the names of all
These trees that do surround me
The furthest ones be Karri trees
So vast and tall they be
As the shadows shade them into darkness
And fill them with such power
Then closer be a wattle tree
All filled with yellow flowers.

To see these trees dance on the breeze
Is a pleasure to the eye
As Sheep feed on the lush green grass
The day begins to die
The night time creeps on up to me
And birds sing goodnight songs
As I feel that here in Pemberton
My heart it does belong.

    I looked at the titles to choose from and I'm glad I selected this one to read. You are a nature person.. Love the name 'Karri',, want to check out those trees. And with the visuals you created, it's a divine and magical night there in Pemberton. And this poem has a meditative feel which I love so much! To my faves...

    Thank you Gautami. I moved to western Australia from London nearly fifty years ago, and I still think it is a paradise, especially in places like my beautiful Pemberton. I truly appreciate your kind comments, my friend....peter
