The pleasure of the lake

The pleasure of the lake

Each day I charge my batteries
With a stroll down to the lake
It's a must, to walk those wetland trails
It gives the mind a break
From all the turmoil of each day
It's a journey into peace
As those dancing trees that ride the breeze
Give my soul such sweet release.

So many things there, one might see
In those wetland trails I walk
I find there at Lake Joondalup
A place where nature talks
With wild birds everywhere one looks
And frogs, and kangaroos
Little lizards, perhaps a snake
So much there welcomes you.

That such a place could dwell in Perth
This gives me so much pleasure.
Communing each new day with nature
To mne, this be a treasure.
This lake, it reaches out to me
And tells me 'Life is good'
It's such a joy to have this lake
Here in our neighbourhood.

    Your imagery leaves that one special image upon the mind Peter....''Ethereal''

    Thank you so much Ilene, and I hope I am worthy of such praise. Perth is a beautiful city, but now progress is catching up with us, and the wild life is disappearing fast....Peter

    bravo....I have marked you as a favorite of mine also.....I was with you down the stroll by the lake. I can tell you have been writing for a long time.

    Thank you so much Wayne, I started writing when tiny, but have been doing it seriously since seventy five. Thank you for putting this poem on your favourites. I consider that a great honour...peter
