Riverwood



Which way do I turn, if not, to you
Woodsy path is wild - wheat, grass, moss
Berries abound, colorful as birds
As summer mornings cool as iced tea
Under pines & sugar maple trees
River-bound, the air is pristine
Rebirthing within me, slate so green

  3. summer mornings cools as iced tea..........refreshing comes to mind...and here you've painted the rebirthing, the greening. If I were an artist with watercolors, I would love to paint this scene and the feelings you evoke here :)

  4. Lillian nailed by favorite line. A sweet septet. We all could use a halcyon walk in the woods; smile.
