So, I went and spent time soaking up the charm and power of nature yesterday morning. It was beautiful and during which, I jotted down this poem. It's nice to be able to slow down enough to tap into my forgotten creativity.
Mighty oak and dappled yew
Sunlights kiss and moonlights dew
The proudest pine, the birch so coy
The gentle wind, the blue sky's joy
I walk through green and sodden grass
With Nemetona, memories past
They've basked in sun and tasted rain
They've heard our song and felt our pain
With beautiful and revenant eyes,
Sparkling winter, Autumn skies
My trees, my grass, my cones and bark
Thank you all, your song I hark

Lovely! Let it flow!
Love took up the glass of Time, and turn'd it in his glowing hands;
Every moment, lightly shaken, ran itself in golden sands.
Love took up the harp of Life, and smote on all the chords with might;
Smote the chord of Self, that, trembling, pass'd in music out of sight.
(from Locksley Hall by Alfred Lord Tennyson)
