in the lakewater near a farmyard
smiling faces mirrored in rouge red
toward the upper reaches
a glimmer of warmth
seeping into my breath
a stranger like me
not feeling so lonely
i am alien here as a guest …
Flowers stay rooted in their place of being and regale us with their lovely colors. But you are a human being who can travel and spread your unique loveliness of personality and positive feelings wherever you go. The flowers represent nature's contributiion to beautifying the world. You fulfill the human contribution as an informal ambassador of good will. Long live both flowers and foreign travel! !
A camera cannot fully collect the infinite beauty of the nature. Thank you for your lovely comment as usual!
A beautiful write of a place in a distant land, feelings of the simple joys of nature. This poem will evoke wonderful memories of it, even years on.
Thank you for your nice comment and sharing as ever!
'Smiling faces mirrored in rouge red' sounds wonderful rolling off my tongue as I speak your words. What a lovely scene your portray, starting with observant description, personifying these beautiful flowers. But then you insert the speaker into the scene, conveying the image, but also how the image makes the speaker feel. Nicely expressed in a very succinct and quiet manner. Well done. Thanks for sharing.
Thank you for your beautiful comment and sharing dear Pamela!
Hi Cigeng, A glimmer of warmth is what the beauty and innocence of nature renders to our breath. Rightly put by you into a marvellous poem. And how have likened the reflection of nature in the water to rouge. Loved reading. Congrats. Keep writing.
