The Forest Green....

As early dawns sunlight, of golden glass....

Now drips from the ambient forest of green

Showers of light reflected, from across the pond

Gazing amid the cabins threshold; these love laced thoughts

A nightingale lingering; singing atop the windows ledge
Faraway whispers, from the preludings winds of time....

Ushering these images, beyond the corridores of ones soul

Still waters resurgent; resplendent, upon the silverish blue

Alluvions resillence, painted in criterion before my eyes

Lavishly renewed colours, brushed gently this heart of mine....

Fireflies and butterflies, floating through the turquoise sky

Melodies atop this brilliant canvas', carousels of life ~

But, as the pendulums gravities of truth sway inside my mind

I find myself within a fortitude of ponder; fortified
By the realization that not all is fairytales and or, ice cream rides....

Pestilence of plights befalling millions and who's wrong or right?

Thus in the referendum of self, one must choose and decide

The ways of justice, balanced upon the scales of conscious

Betwixt the pabulums dividing lines of love and hate?

And a poet writes....

Peering across the pond unto the other side

Beautiful faces beautiful eyes, beautiful hearts and beautiful lives

Red Robins sing and White Swans they fly ~

Embracing them all; this knowing; these treasures inside!?


The forest green....

    You have sketched a matchless beauty in this very lovely and sweet poem. Very inspiring to read with fabulous imagery and great contrasts. The idea of this side and that side is beautiful and great, showing the depths of your poem. Love and good wishes always.......Ravindra.........John Rhimen.

    i too ponder the things on the other side. the desolation the povertyover there. the selfishness and the greed and exploiters over here. stealing what is beautiful from over there and bringing it over here. the diamonds and the gold. and now they want to dig on our soil, a hole so deep in the gulf deep enough to find liviathone. we too shall be devastated and starving. our land striped of it's food for the silence we kept while they ravaged the poor. we should change while the forest is still gr

    "The artist of the beautiful." Nice work, John. AS regards "Opinion," it is just that, an opinion, which, unfortunately, is not shared by the vast majority of souls on this planet. Love, Dave

    Dear John, thanks for remembering "John's Aramis." I can't believe you remembered it all this time. Of course, I'll never forget the scent. Men are still wearing it and when one passes by wearing Aramis, it always takes me back to a special warm place in my heart. Thank you, John. Love, Carolyn

    John, you have filled this page with some powerful and stirring details, all over again. You have the wonderful details, but yet you are still able to intermesh some darker, vexing questions about our modern ways and morality. Well done~Chris
