My Beautiful Place

I've seen the Rocky Mountains From Alberta to New Mexico Heavenly reaching cathedrals Rock walls like stained glass windows Death Valley's crystalline sands Sparkle like moonlit seas Red orange cactus roses Saguaro and Joshua Trees Green meadows covered with weeds Deep purple to crimson red Melting in waves of heat Reflecting in lakes where they bled Looked out, over Niagara Falls Sunlit mist of every hue Thousand Islands, covered with snow In The St Lawrence of indigo blue Multicolored hot air balloons Floating lazily 'cross baby blue skies But the place most beautiful to me Is here, with you by my side an original poem by Daniel Turner

Travel is good, but travel with a loved one is always better. All the colours of the rainbow. I love this one.

Isn't that the way you feel? I'm certain at some point you have gone with your husband in the truck. Every place is more beautiful when you are with the one you love.

Thank you Mrs. Sandra. Yes I have been around some, seen and experienced things most people only see in books or on TV. I have truly been blessed. I consider your friendship one of those blessings.

Very lovely and colorful. There is much beauty out there DT but nothing compares to the one next to you. Does this mean you are back with your ex?

Hardly. My ex is just a good friend. These days my heart beats for a forbidden love who only visits in my dreams. I appreciate your continued support.

Oh Daniel, you managed to express the loveliness of each place with such beautiful imagery, succinctly and with such passion. Of course I also loved the way you chose to end your poem. I hope to see this a top winner! 7 ; )
