Calm And Still #1, A Poem.

Sitting here along the shore,

There’s beauty seen and much more.

Here the pines are standing tall,

Here is the loon’s thrilling call.

Breezes blow and then they pass,

Water soon is smooth like glass.

Trees reflected in this scene,

Twice the beauty, so serene.

Listen now, the thrush’s song,

In this picture does belong.

So silent now a gull flies past,

Gracefully in skies so vast.

Here I sit and take my fill,

Of this scene, so calm and still.

  1. Calm and still is eerie yet chill. I can’t sit with my thoughts since they wander at will. Not calming or quiet with the chatter in my brain. My ears are always ringing and it’s driving me insane!

    • Yes, a bird of the northern wilderness lakes. Somewhat similar to a duck. An amazing bird really with what is usually described as an eerie or haunting call. I find it thrilling. Loves to call at night. Thanks for reading Chrissy, hope you have a great weekend!
