My Kingdom

When I’m in my garden
I’m a King, I have a throne
I sit here very solitary
I am happy on my own

All my subjects gather round
The birds, the flowers, the trees
And all those noisy Sand gropers
The frogs, and all the bees.

Canaries have a special place
They play music for my court
Often wild birds join along
As I sit wrapped in thought.

My courtyards are not tidy
All the bushes cling together
But hey, they give me so much shade
In our hot sticky weather.

So I sit and write my memoirs down
Like a good King really should
As I sit here in my kingdom
And I really feel so good.

G'day Sidney … I can easily picture your poem Sidney. Many consider the outback a barren place but it is so rich in life and beauty - thank you Sidney - Lindsay

Hi Lindsay, Our country is filled with beauty to those with eyes to see, But how many do. The thing that strikes as so beautiful when way out the bush is that total silence that lives there. I just wish that the idiots are tearing our country to Pieces as they are the beautiful Barrier reef, Shame on the fools, I say. Thank you for your comments, mate, And have a great Christmas and new year...Peter

Thank you so much Connie. My garden and my writing are both so very dear to me. At this age I really don't want much at all. I guess that I am very lucky to have this contentment. Have a wonderful Christmas and a lovely new year, my friend....Peter

You and your pen have a lovely rhythm that delivers compelling and pretty imagery. You should truly be read. One must read to be read - learned that and do it, making every effort to remain sincere as I go (I refuse to falsely glow & wouldn't want anyone to do so for me.) Please discover and be discovered. I love our garden, our private Eden where we co-create with God. I related ... CayCay

Hi Cay Cay, for forty years I smoked the weed to get a high, now I just need the breath of nature make me truly High. Thee is a kind of joy coming through me that makes my simple life so beautiful. My writing and nature are all I ever need these days. your sincerity comes across as a great gift that you have. I get a kick out of reading sincere comments on my poems. Thank you so much for yours. Have a great Christmas, and a great new year, my friend...Peter
