Ah, but our land is beautiful…



Wearily, I strolled down a narrow footpath into the woods

And what a marvelous sight I beheld!

Never, in my sweetest dreams, had I ever imagined that

Nature could be so beautiful!


Sunlight filtered through

While evergreen trees arched their crowns,

To receive the full force of the suns rays.

From somewhere deep within,

The passionate call of a whistler to its mate could be heard.

Squirrels scampered to and fro,

While a still pond

Mirrored an azure sky.

Swans, in all their graceful beauty.

Basked under the glorious rays of the sun.

Eddies formed as tiny fish surfaced in search of food.

Rufous rushes grew wildly on the banks.

And the birds that scrounged for worms, chirped happily…

All around tranquility, serenity and harmony reigned,

A truly ethereal and beauteous sight.


A deep spiritual fulfillment engulfed me.

I walked home with a jauntiness that surprised even me.

I had captured a rare and golden moment.
