Mother Nature’s Gifts to Behold

Mother Nature’s Gifts …

Mother Nature's Gifts

I wander in the woods, bereft and alone,
No aim had I, no defined path to follow,
My mind so hollow, my soul not at ease,
Just one step after another lead me away
From where I had been in other thoughts,
Which escape me at the moment,
This moment is all I know, no sense or goal.

Searching for nothing, seeking something,
To awaken my slumbering soul
And rest easy upon my lonely heart,
A heart that holds so much love,
Yet a moment of loss, something missing
And too long not returned to peace
Where release has always been for me.

I hear a tiny voice, so clear like a chime,
Have you forgotten, where is your mind?
I turn as if to look for and reclaim
A mind that wandered in another time,
I see a faerie, reclining on a lacy fern,
Smiling at me, accepting me in my state
Of oblivion, and my soul feels a spark.

Look around you, open your eyes and heart,
See Mother Nature’s gifts before you, all around,
This is where love does abound with joy.
She flies up to my outstretched hand
And kisses my palm, so light, so beautiful,
A touch that blesses me and wakens my soul,
As I look around at the gifts bestowed upon me.

And once again I am at peace and whole.

I have always liked to write.It is important to me that writing comes from my heart and soul. When writing poetry, if I do not feel a spiritual connection to what I am writing on, I will discard it and go on to something I can connect with on a spiritual level. I live in the moment, I write from the past or beyond the veil. When writing fiction I go with whatever inspires me at the moment - it could be funny, sorrowful, romantic or sometimes done with the use of colloquial language from mountain folk or other cultural regions.

I began writing content online in 2007, starting with BellaOnline - A Voice For Women, where I was the Native American Editor, Folklore & Mythology Editor, and the Appalachian Editor. I also wrote articles forThe Examiner, Daily Two Cents, and Yahoo. I am a freelance writer for Fiverr. I am currently an author on HubPages, a member/author of the Maven Coalition, and Senior Editor and an author for The Creative Exiles.

Most of what I write takes a lot of research and I love it. Even if it is a fictional story, I will research for accuracy in whatever it takes to make my characters, their era, their location, etc. become realistic to the reader.

I hope you enjoy my works. Thank you for visiting.

    Beautiful Phyllis , so visual ! I have often wandered in nature too , just to reclaim all that is lost and at times all that needs to be found . Quite often to lose something heavy that I was carrying too.

    Is there any finer place though !

      Hi Ed. Thank you so much. I love being in nature. True – there is no finer place. Nature allows us to just be who we are to enjoy her gifts and get in touch with ourselves. Take care, dear friend.
