Pennsylvania Countryside

The hills swept by, rolling and green;

Tall, skeletal trees spiking through the canopy.

Stone, layered and tilted, spilling sideways

With edges rough; colors gray, brown and creamy.


Burned out trees; their limbs artfully twisted,

Clawing for the sky through lush growth below.

A hawk, wings spread, floating quietly aloft,

Fierce, golden eyes from early morning's light aglow.


White and black trees, with leafless stems,

Dancing and twisting through forests green.

Protruding stones, chipped with gargoyle faces;

Others layered, sharp, with a watery-wet sheen.


A dusty road meandering off to nowhere;

The greens of the woods spiking across the horizon;

An Amish farm with rows laid out so clean.

The sun's glory, over all, has risen.

Thanks Shirley.........glad you see all that here in Pennsylvania .

I would probably say:

I woke up this morning,
With sun in my eyes.
THe Hummers were busy,
and so was the flys.

I walk to the mailbox
TO retreive the Paper,
Wishing for, a more exciting caper.

The coffee is brewing, My cup is all set.
I read the newspaper,
Which is sometime all wet.

SO much for the boring paper I rise.
Go to the outdoors to check my suprise.

Off to the garden and live is a joy.
Hope the best is out there today.
This is my story
And always my way.
