Higher Meaning

The forest, laid out in lavender pink Harbors light within its tender confines Sea foam runs in, as water is nearby No tree has a look that is quite alike Some trees are tall, others are short and stout The water tries to make its statement here Crystal clear teal, it foams at its edges The lake holds creativity within Nothing about it looks like the forest The light from the waning sun captivates I understand the sight, mixture of life No animal could understand this sight No meaning is greater than the sun’s rays It brought me the mauve colors before me The water, that lovely water, is blue Colorful only by the sun’s bright light May I always enjoy my forest here And the water, the crystal clear water I will forever be inspired from this To write lovely words of great tenderness Saving my heart, leaving me with true joy I will always feel the pure wonderment

    One of your best, Russell , for what you are saying with it and for its descriptiveness. I sure enjoyed this.

    "No meaning is greater than the suns rays"... so much beauty in this! I'm reminded of the book Hatchet by Gary Paulsen... I very much think you would enjoy it! It's about a boy who crash lands in the Canadian wilderness and is thus forced to fend for himself. To become "one with nature"... it's a very moving story! I appreciate you always being yourself... keep on writing!

    You are painting so marvelously with words, Russell, that I might name you the Rembrandt of poetry!
