The Mosaic Carpet

O how beautiful is nature
Colors in all its glory enhance the eyes of the beholder
Every forest, Every stream, every wilderness
Every desert, every meadow and wild valley
such a wonderful Mosaic of living, breathing life
and how the sun brings beauty to all shapes and sizes
and in the stillness of moonlight soft colors embrace

For we are all part of that Mosaic carpet
and it is a moving living, dying soul of immortality
so pleasing is the rose and her sweet luscious scent
so perfect is the field daisy in her yellow petals and black eyes
Hear the blackbird as it serenades the symphony of life-song
and the thrush calls to its loved ones
A fox calls its kittens and the rabbit thumps the ground

Looking skywards we see the color of the kyte as it shivers overhead
Swallows skim verdant green fields as insects natter
and the field mouse scampers up a tall grass feeding
the colors of butterflies as they dance in the winds waltz
and the rush of the sea waves like tiny horses with white manes
So brilliant the red, purples, greens and blues of the yonder mountains
and all of us live breathe and survive upon natures Mosaic carpet

thankyou for your kind words I have built up a large number of poems now and one day hope to publish a manuscript but until then one can only dream ....I am sure others on this site must also write ...many true animal lovers like your members are very talented and creative maybe we should start an animal poetry challenge

Kitty24 is right, your poems were absent. Anyway I could read them better now, I have improved my English in the last two years. Wink

I agree. Actually I started to write poems and short stories last year and I think some of them are quite good, but until now they are completely german.
Well, I guess, it would be a interesting challenge for me to write some english ones... or at least to translate some of them. Wink
