Southern Beauty

https://soundcloud.com/kentucky-gal/2014-09-27-09-15-43717a How sweet is the southern beauty of a country rose blossom today. Soft scents that float gently on the breeze through trees that sway. With bare feet I wander country roads through heavenly display. Across the emerald meadows on hills where butterflies play. Skirt held high above knees in crystal waters of the creek I wade. Sun kissed cheeks, rosy red as I lay 'neath the big oak trees shade. I gaze up into the great cathedral of blue high above me. In awe as downy white clouds float lazily along for me to see. Like tiny feathers from heaven cherry blossoms fall to the ground. Whilst off in the distance I hear the lonesome train whistle sound. Quietly I watch a family of deer so shy as the tree line they grace. Whilst the lonesome sound of the whippoorwill puts a smile on my face. So thankful am I that these brown eyes can see. This heavenly picture God has painted for me.

So lovely, Mary. This poem is just dreamy. It has everything: sound, smells, sight, feeling...but mostly, it's just so peaceful. Love it.

Why Hello Mary Hoose!! It's been ages since I last communicated with you over Poetry Soup. (I've been recently following the co-writes too that you and Mike have expertly done together!!) I stay in touch with Mike too, from time-to-time. About, "Southern Beauty," I wanted you to know that it's a marvelous work, indeed, in every respect. The word picture you've weaved from the words and imagery in your seven stanzas, I find to be both heartfelt and breathtaking!! SEVEN/FAV!! Cheers and Best, Gary

You take the reader to dizzying heights here, Mary. : ) It's intoxicating. To think how many people grow up without being in such places. To think how many people never see them....

Hi my Kentucky Rose, as always your gentle words do float across the mind. Your little journeys into your past do surely sing to me. You paint a picture so beautiful onto the canvas . Your words make the images so real that one could walk right into them. You gently lead the reader into your world of Southern Beauty. I would love to walk through this world with you. In dream i do often but the world i create is never as beautiful as your Southern beauty. A 7 and a fave. Love always....Mike. XXX
