The Road

Hidden from the public view,
This road is known to just a few.

It's not so very far from me,
Just head due west and you will see.
Go across the bridge and make a right
You'll find the road within your sight.

Now around the curve and up the hill
Through the mushroom forest, quiet and still.

Go over the hill and down a short way
Seeing new treasures every day.

Find the old walk and cross to the lake
If some photo's you want to take.

See turtles and deer, flowers and bees.
Find dragons and damsels in bushes, in trees.

And then its back home, just a short way,
And plan the next visit for some other day.

Now as for roads, it's not about size,
The important thing is where it lies.
What sights can you see along the way?
And are they different every day?
And how does it curve, how does it bend?
But most of all, where does it end?

  13. Oh this is great Baker and I love the collage..and the poem. I need to go and scout out some of the parks near here, but they are warning folks about rabies as 2 people were just bitten by a rabid fox. Kind of puts a damper on a walk..

  21. Thanks to all of you for dropping by and for all the kind comments. I always try to make a visit and comment to all our visitors and if I missed any I apologize.

    I see many liked the mushroom. Well it wasn't quite tree-sized but it was big, lol. I was surprised that day by all the different mushrooms in a relatively small area and by how all the small groupings varied so much in size and shape.

    Hope you all had (have) a great weekend.

    Baker
