This place called Nannup

A lovely place is where I love to go
Grey skies, they often take away suns glow
Days I’ve spent there a watching nature flow

In Nannup it is filled with Tingle trees
I’ve seen their branches dancing with the breeze
Watching all of this gives me so much ease

Beautiful, are those swans that float on by 
Tall trees they send out Kookaburras cry
All this serenity it makes me high

Sweet Fairy wrens they gather on the lawn
It is just a little while after dawn
I love it when a brand new day is born

It's a lovely place it is, this nannup
Sweet joy, it brings. It overflows my cup

G'day Lindsay I love those little pockets too, but the body is playing up on me these days, so I have to write from memories. I have many of those to write and many year to do it in. Thank you for always being there to read my stuff, my friend....Peter

I so wish I could add photos. I have never figured out how to do it. when I see "upload video" I stop because it is a picture, not a video. Is that my problem? This poem and picture are perfect together. Thank you for the explanation of the "ellisonnet" also. I wondered what the cadence was. It struck me immediately. Beautifully done in every direction, my friend! BRAVO!

Hi Caren, it took me a long time for me to learn how to post Photos. I'm not good at explaining things, but Andrea told me how to do it, I'm sure she could help you. It is very simple once you get the hang of it. It took me about four years. I am on a group called Poetry and publishing. They introduced me to over two hundred Styles, and published 40 books for me. Hey Caren I know nothing about Cadence and many words folk talk about on these sites. Thank you for your kind comments, my friend....Peter
