Poem From Phrases

In The Forest Down The Road

In the forest down the road
It’s there that I did go
I’d take with me my camera
And watch the morning glow
I used to sit beside the lake
And just let me, be me
Mystery it touched my soul
How simple life would be

There’s something about the morning
It is filled with peace and joy 
All was beauty all was love
A force naught could destroy
It took me up into the heights
Oh Lord I felt so high
Something had awakened me
Though I did not know why

Nothing but silence filled my soul
The stillness was serene
It filled me up with so much bliss
As I sat and watched that scene
As the birds they sang a symphony
Like angels in the sky
Oh, what a grand experience.
It was, oh my, oh my.

Peter’s Phrases
In the Forest/Peace and joy
All was beauty/Love is so sweet
Nothing but silence/I it gives me bliss

Thank you so much Caren. Most of my poems these days are from the past when I walk up to 50 Ks a day. Now because I get dizzy spells that go with age, I fall so often, and the and the thought of this scares me. I am still in much pain. Yesterday I walked down to the lake, but it geds rather scary in case I fall again. Vera worries all the time too. Thank you so much for your kind comments, my friend....peter
