I went for a drive in the country one fine day, and came upon a huge field full of wildflowers; the flowers swayed and danced in the gentle breeze. There were bright white Daisies and yellow Buttercups, sweet Black-Eyed Susan and tall, tall blue Coneflowers; and in and out and drinking came buzzing fat bees. I got out of my car to explore . . . with delight, loving the tall delicate Cosmos in all hues; it was a beautiful dream- but it was all real. I felt full of peace and let go of my sadness, for this moment all I knew was tranquility; wanting to dwell with flowers and just petals- feel. How long did I linger here- (was it but an hour), butterflies came drifting and many song birds sang; oh, I could wander with these wildflowers all day. Walking among orange blooms and purple Asters, the soft blue wildflowers and oh so pretty weeds; this memory will always and forever stay. _________________________ June 27, 2019 Poetry/Verse/Tri-con/A Summer Field Copyright Protected, ID 19- 1160-637-02 All Rights Reserved.

Hello Dear Heart … if ever we need a way to unclog our minds, nothing beats being in tune with nature with all the colour, song, and perfume - I enjoyed your verse Dear Heart - Lindsay
