This wooded creek
sparkling water through the trees
secret so hidden
a favourite of mine.

I stand at
not moving but listening;
just listening.

The imperceptible
sound accompanies such grace
of a cob and pen
gently paddling.

Water trickles
to join the main flow
the sound is such music
of this serene place.

St Moran’s church
bells silent today
graveyard so quiet
a sanctuary for wildlife.

 Two pheasants' call
‘sans’ melody
cutting the peace.

I sit at
not moving but listening;
now watching.

This wonderful place.
Where peace can be found.
This secret so hidden.
My heart bursts with joy.

This poem makes me feel still--listening, not moving--feeling the precious joy of life all around. A good way to start a morning. Thank you, Claire.

What beautiful images. Thank you so much for finding me, so I could find you!

the cuby poet said...

Mitch; Welcome here. Beautiful places allow me to create beautiful images and enable me to transport you to these places you may never visit in reality.

the cuby poet said...

CherryPie: I agree.


I could reach out and touch Lamorran through your words -- a great meditative place. Peaceful. -- barbara
