Fields awash with yellow corn
Glowing golden for miles.
Interwoven by lush green hedgerows
And a wood of towering trees.
Contrasting red poppies stretch
Their hue as far as the eye can see,
Broken stillness only by a breeze.
Gods blessing of sight.
Rippled waters of the weir cascade
Down to the river flowing for miles.
Intercepted by the quacking ducks
Waddling among reeds.
Chugging motor boats, and handles
Turning of the lock gates
To gushing flowing sounds.
Gods blessing of hearing.
Honey suckle bush exudes its
Heady perfume for seeming miles.
Interrupted only by the mock orange
And brief encounters of rosemary,
Sage, lavender and the rose.
Newly mowed lawn and the air
After a shower of summer rain.
Gods blessing of smell.
Hand in hand to walk life's
Journey for miles and miles.
Love entwined by despair, hope, grief,
Doubt, faith and suffering.
Enlightenment, exploring the
Depths of the soul to inquire
And know ones self to the full.
Gods blessing of emotion.
