Beyond [repost]

sun shining trees

After days of rain,
Morning sunshine glows again.
Noisy birds approve.

Grass soft as frosting;
Leaves drizzling sugar dew;
Restful world awaits.

Curious cat roams
Beyond the manicured lawn
Into shadowed woods.

Ancient wings unfold,
As warm fresh blood approaches;
Magic spell is cast.

Cat comes home with eyes aflame:
Different somehow still the same.

  7. A Curious Narrative

    A very evocative poem, it is easy to imagine that there is something just beyond that dark horizon when walking in woodland. Enjoyed it…
