In The Middle (a poem)

 


I am standing here

Beside a lonesome tree

In the middle of a beautiful scene

 

The ground is rich in nutrients, nourished by a perfect tone of green grass

Fields of it reaching out miles upon end

 

An eagle flies overhead, letting loose a beautiful cacophony

In the baby blue sky with wispy, white clouds hovering, making shapes of all sorts

 

The sun shines brightly, lighting everything up

Feeding it rich light and sprouting wonderful scenes

 

I can feel the wind brush against my skin, painting it with coolness

It visibly breezes against the tree as well, giving him a little shudder

 

Together we are in the middle

In the middle of all great things that Mother Earth has to offer

Resting in her love and care

Right here

In the middle

Author's Note

Joshua Donahue
this reminds me a lot of The Lovely Bones (book and movie). Let me know what ya think!

p.s. most of my poems are written on the fly. and some of them rhyme and some don't. the rhyming ones are more like songs to me.

The beauty of our creator painted for us
to enjoy Mother earth we must take care it
your words capture such beautiful intense images
the image of the eagle fling overhead remain in my mind
Brilliant piece!

The Lovely Bones is an amazing movie and book. Your poem really describes mother nature very well, you did a very good job, impressive work.
