Oasis

I close my eyes, I see sapphire seas
mountains of trees that glisten
from the morning sun

Captivating nights, calm Indian summers
dreams taking flight under the stars

Earth embraces an oasis of beauty
emerald pathways lined with daffodils
that drink the morning dew

Butterflies dance amongst the scent of magnolia fields
the whispering valleys cry out to behold the scenery
how beautiful even if I am day dreaming
it's life floating, endless peace

Echoes cross-valleys to sing songs of autumn leaves
hand painted landscapes of bridges to tranquility
just close your eyes and dream of the possibilities

One nice thing about "possibilities" is sometimes The Second Lady accepts your occasional "thought" and proceeds to weave a series of "events" to make it so (and then the adventure begins for we mortals!!!).

In answer to your question, I'm just chugging along behind you. I was just thinking that you're probably busier than a one armed paper hanger!!

Idle hands are the devil's workshop. Once again, The Second Lady knows what she is doing (and I know what I don't "understand")!!!

WOW, loving your Oasis. Great job. I shall meditate on such a place. thanks.

ROBERT DAVIDSON said...

'Oasis' presents a beautiful dreamscape full of delightfully vivid images and a smooth word-flow and gives a very positive healing message of how the world ought to be, an ideal which can only be achieved, it would seem, if we close our eyes for only a moment.
