By the pond...

...sitting by the pond...

so lush is the green
blooms in alchemic grace
beholden to the light
libation in sweet refrain.

  1. Hi RoseMarie
    There is a pond right out front of our home and it is fed clean water by a running brook.Just beyond there are two more ponds. I sit by the one out front in all seasons. In summer it covers over with a thick green coat - some think it is unsightly. I know better for the frogs and snakes and other pond life live just beneath the green and feed off of its bounty. Also, the green coating cools the water. The bull frogs bellow all night - I love the sound. The heron perch and the geese raise their babies, the sunny fish swim freely and the snakes, and beaver and natural inhabitants are quite at home.
    So am I.
    Love to you

  2. Gear Gail,

    So much as ONE do we enjoy... the feel, the sounds, the delight of life and water's abundance.

    Blessings to you and yours.

    Much love,
    Rose Marie
