The Great Outdoors - Poem by Richard Provencher

Today is a slide of
wind, soothing as stream's
cascading surge

ducks hidden in clouds
of evening shade,
silhouettes and movement.

Rain continues its pounce
of warmth, sprinkles
like shoreline clothing

and loons create
callings within eerie mist.

Dusk weaves between trees
sunbeams fanning
across ripples, the lake

providing respite, canoes
eager, searching.

Nature's union is memory.


Poet's Notes about The Poem

The woods have provide me with a sanctuary for peace and relaxation. I have also been able to tent, fish and photograph the essence of its beauty for many years and this domain is definitely a gift from our Lord.
