My Inner Landscape

My Inner Landscape

I close my eyes and I can see
A path from river stone laid
Past fragrant lily of the valley
'Neath a weeping willow for shade
Clover, violet and moss so lush
Varying shades of green 
A blossom laden spirea bush
Morning dew adds sparkle and sheen
The sounds of serenity filter in
Birdsong and a dragonfly's whir
Leaves flutter on tip of limb 
As a breeze begins to stir
A seat from a tree stump hewn
From which to sit and ponder
While glimpsing in cloud an ancient rune
A delicious way time to squander
Come join me in my inner landscape
A place I have carefully constructed
Where from life's trials we can escape
And dreams are not obstructed
