When I_m walking with Trees

Painting by Pierre AJ Sabourin En Plein Air Landscape Artists

Thank you Pierre for use of your painting. It inspired this poem

 

When I’m walking with Trees

A forgotten path beckons

Through an ancient forest

Covered in lichen and moss

When I’m walking with trees

My body is relaxing

My energy is flowing

My soul becomes of the forest

As I listen, to the forest sounds

The air is calm

The morning sunlight filtering

On the forest floor dancing

When I’m walking with trees

When I’m walking with trees
My body is relaxing

My energy is flowing

The path twists and turns

Over time worn rock

I have this feeling

Being watched from above

A light appears ahead

As closer I walk

The light it intensifies

Then before my eyes, fading

I hear a song

As I walk along

It is the trees whispering

A hush voice singing

A gentle caress upon my cheek

It is the morning breeze

Cool and fresh, a lover’s touch

When I’m walking with trees

When I’m walking with trees

My body is relaxing

My energy is flowing

The trees appear to nod

As I pass by

The air is clear

The sounds I hear

The brush of a branch

Gently upon my shoulder

It has been awhile

For now I smile

Pitaya

Pitaya

The evening was late. The last of the sunlight fading away. A spot of light caught the tip of the cactus, Pitaya’s emerging flower.

The Pitaya is a very large crawling type of cactus. The flower very large. The fruit makes an excellent drink.

Join Me And The Lord

The day has been long

But I made a song

Just walk a little closer

Join me and the Lord

The shadows upon the walls

The church bells are ringing

You can hear him calling

Join me and the Lord

Just walk a little closer

Join me and the Lord

Hallelujah,Hallelujah

Just walk a little closer

To me, my darling

I’ll sing you my song

As we walk along

Just walk a little closer

Join me and the Lord

Hallelujah,Hallelujah

The church bells are ringing

You can hear him calling

Just walk a little closer

Join me and the Lord

Gory Hallelujah,Hallelujah

Hallelujah,Hallelujah

The day has been long

But I made a song

Just walk a little closer

Join me and the Lord

Gory Hallelujah,Hallelujah

Hallelujah,Hallelujah

When I First Saw You

When I First Saw You

When I first saw you

That smile

Just broke my heart

It was off the chart

You called my name

You gave me your heart

I gave you my soul

You are my sweetheart

Yes my darling

You are my love

We are forever and more

Sealed with a kiss

A kiss of love

Yes darling

You are my love

My forever love

You prayed for me

To be delivered to you

You waited four years long

Then I came along

You can rest your fears

Wash away your tears

You are in my arms

You will come to no harm

Yes darling

You are my love

My forever love

You need not pretend

Not pretend, anymore

I am holding you

Our hearts will blend

You will never walk alone

So baby, don’t cry

Just look up at the sky

Then say thank you

When I first saw you

That smile

Just broke my heart

It was off the chart

You will never walk alone

So baby, don’t cry

Just look up at the sky

Then say thank you

The info taken from Wikipedia

One day I had the opportunity to photograph this little baby waiting for a parent to feed it in my garden. I was able to set up the camera and tripod within five feet of my little subject. The hummingbirds are use to me being around them. I used my 200 mm lens.

The lighting was good. I was able to achieve a high shutter speed for good stop action. It was a delightful six hours of observing and capturing the hummingbird doing its thing

It’s Saturday night

The clock strikes eight

I got a pocket full of money

I’ll call my honey

Going down to the bar

It’s not too far

I got a pocket full of money

I am walking my honey

I’ll take her hand

Oh, I feel so grand

I can hear the music

I hear them blues

The band strikes up

It is the blues, so slow

Hey, come on babe

We dance, oh so close

We’ll sway our hips

We will touch our lips

We move our feet

I feel the heat

Oh, that feels so good

Just gives me the mood

That slow,slow blues

As the band plays on

Ah yeah, love you babe

You and the blues

That is the way

It should be

The clock strikes four

It is late, the hour

I will walk you home

Oh what a blues night

Hey. come on honey

It’s Saturday night

The clock strikes eight

I got a pocket full of money

I’ll call my honey

Going down to the bar

It’s not too far

I got a pocket full of money

I am walking my honey

I combined the two trunks of a Birch tree with the yellow, red and green leaves to create this composition.
