Listen – ewe bleating after lambs
Sit – observing cattle chew their cud
Hear – the sky lark sing their merry song
On the beach sand castles are built
Succumb to the silence of a moving river
On a forest walk, listen to the trees speak
Walk a country road, stop. Listen as someone practices scales.
feel your heart beat.
Spider busy at weaving.
Reading “The Song of Wandering Aengus” (W. B. Yeats)
Walk, uplifting heart and eyes
Watch, dog play chase through lapping waves
Welcome home hugs from family
Sharing special moments with your grandchild.
Spellbound at the works of mother nature.
On a walk in the silence of the country side, listen to what farmlands are saying.
Marvel at the inner relationship of thought, pen and paper.
“Poetry is the opening and closing of a door, leaving those who look through to guess what is seen during a moment” Carl Sandburg.
