Summer’s Pause

Summer’s heat taking pause

Rain touches with wet paws

 

Dry landscape’s soaking mist

Moisture been greatly missed

 

Gray overcast hides skies

Missing sun sadly sighs

 

Nature’s well-deserved break

Setting up summer’s cake

 

Crops, flowers, and grass smile

Delicious, stay awhile

 

Harmony finds its tune

Despite absent, full moon

 

Tranquility looks down

Nature’s elegant gown

 

Richest hues, brightest tones

Beauty’s shining gemstones

 

Precious stones on display

Add one more day to play

 

Summer’s heat shall resume

But first, smell rain’s fresh bloom

Refreshing Rain

Renewing dry, parched landscape

Resurrecting nature’s shape

 

Refreshing rain offers grace

Restoring peace to this place

 

Restarting with single drop

Reopening life’s closed shop

 

Reaffirming rain calling

Rallying lifeline falling

 

Recommitting faithful hand

Reassuring thirsty land

 

Reviving lost paradise

Rebounding rain’s special spice

 

Relieving vast acres’ stress

Rejuvenating success

 

Renovating rain’s duty

Recapturing land’s beauty

 

Rekindling valley’s lost spark

Reflecting light over dark

 

Repairing nature’s lost soul

Remaking her glory whole

This nature-rich poem is crafted with a different style.  Beginning each verse with an “R” word as inspired by “refreshing rain,” offers a challenge for my poetic pen.  

Nature’s Witness (Elfchen Series #23)

Scared

Rabbit

Sensing danger

Heart beating fast

Sitting quiet and still

Invisible

God’s Country

Morning

Glorious sunrise

Big Montana Sky

Prairies, mountains smile forever

Applause

From southwestern Montana, the Tobacco Root Mountains rise above the Madison River valley.

Mystery

Hiking

Park trail

With cautious steps

Who’s watching me now?

Greetings
