Morning bliss

Morning bliss

I walk along this wetland trail
All lined with twisted trees
As they join in nature’s symphony
Dancing upon the breeze
A ring necked Parrot sings his song
Some magpies warble low
As the sun shining from deep blue sky
It makes the morning glow.

The peaceful lake reflects the sun
As Ducks quack lazily
The wattle bird gives grating calls
That echo through the trees
Corella parrots screeching loudly
Do fly above my head
As I walk this bush land trail
With joy within my tread

A Kookaburra laughs out loud
In a haunting kind of way
It seems the whole world is alive
On this sunny winters day
I walk, my camera in my hand
Snapping pictures everywhere
With my feet as light as feathers
My mind with not one care.

    Hi Peter, I hope Vera and yourself had a wonderful Christmas. Gone and dusted for another year. I hope you are both well. "Morning Bliss" once more comes from our pen. Once more your visions spring forth in vivid colour before my eyes. And what wonderful visions you paint Peter. You are the lens which sees such wondrous beauty of nature and you put down your so descriptive words in a way that the visions have life. You have painted another beautiful morning Peter. Your Friend always....MIKE.

    With words like these I doubt you could have caught a better image with your camera. Thank you for your Well Wishes on my “Southern Christmas”. If I may though, I will urge you to follow the links to my first photo, the poem seems better that way. Having posted both poem and blog so late I was not expecting any responses, so am overwhelmed with how many responses they got. It further buoyed my Festive Season. Just one of a few joys on Christmas day. Enjoy the Season Peter

    If you go to my poems list, you will see what looks like a drivers licence amongst the icons above my name. When you hover your curser over it, it will tell you that is my blog link. Press on that, and once in there you should see that photos are an option. Thanks for asking, it hope it's worth the effort.

    hey, are you the same poet that wrote about this lake in another poem? It seems so familiar!! You are sure lucky to live by such a place and this is a poem that gets across the peace and beauty of that place.

    Andrea, when my hip was in good condition I would walk around this lake every day for years, and this has inspired me to write very many poems about it, I suppose they are all similar but they are very heartfelt. Sorry about their sameness. I appreciate your comments my friend...peter
