The heady scent of the golden meadow
Where warm sunshine kisses lingered
Upon tall shoots of grass swaying
In a gentle summer breeze…
Wantonly teased my senses!
Emerald green ferns naughtily fondled
The meadow’s edge, where a babbling brook
All but hidden neath a sea of green
Meandered down into the forest…
Beckoning me into nature’s embrace!
Fragrant trees, splendidly gowned
In irresistibly alluring couture
Designed to tantalize
Even the most virtuous soul…
Sensuously waved their limbs at me!
And I was a willing captive!
For every part of me tingled
With the excitement of surrender
To the intense passion sated only…
In Mother Nature’s arms!

Yes. Yes. You are a captive. Look at your photo, there is a green fern UFO floating there! The fern people have come to claim their Queen! Nice knowing you. Patrick

In Mother Nature's Arms - a truly wondrous place to be. And we are horrendously losing far too much of Her beauty these days.
Reviewed by Ronald Hull
Makes me want to join you amid the ferns by the babbling brook where we could lounge on caribou moss and feast on fresh caught trout. Dammit. I am only dreaming.

Writing in smells! I like that. One of my favorites, too: grass in the sun. Nice capture of the breeze bringing plants to the life of movement, and catchy language: "In irresistibly alluring couture". Your last stanza shows deep appreciation for vegetation on earth, as is expressed to this degree also in the book The Celestine Prophecy by James Redfield. I want to go walk in the long grass now. ~~ Diana

Reviewed by Mark Lichterman
How easy to be seduced by "lovely". Just seeing the picture of your words and sensing the scent of the "golden meadow" would be seduction enough.

You captured well the true nature of weather or seasonal allure in this poem. Whether it be the seductiveness of summer, the sensuality of fall, the glitter of winter or the rebirth of spring mother nature definately can capture our spirits and our hearts at times.
Reviewed by Jerry Bolton
Every line a keeper and the keeper is alive with your voice and your passion for natures wonder, Anna. It shows here in a wonderful piece of writing.
