Upon A Bed Of Petals

I am holding my hands over my eyes,
I want to listen to what sound resides.

I can hear the waves beating on the ground.
The slow rhythm of each wave as it pounds.

The squawk of a bird, I can hear far away.
Soft whispers, as the wind has something to say.

I settle back on the ground to listen.
On the warm ground I purr like a kitten.

The warmth I feel from the sun on my face.
Thoughts are roaming through time and through space.

I have a peace of mind it’s hard to explain.
Like the coolest water from a short summer rain.

My body settles down so softly in this land.
I’m lying upon a bed of petals in the sand.

    Dear Donald, Got all my senses motivated with YOUR descriptive vivid imagery.If I write the wrong word in a POEM it stays there Forever. No body ever tells me I made a mistake. Probably because if they did it once they know they don't have time to say something Everytime I miscue. Another Classic.Congratulations With LOVE ALWAYS and FOREVER YOUR Eternal Liege...Harry
