I spent a few days in Maine - and experienced such natural beauty all around me.
The flowers were shining without a care in the world, showing off their brilliant petals, colors and vibrancy for all to see - and looking on was a dancing bumble bee.
With gentle fluttering butterflies for all to see.
And colors so inviting that they looked as if they were just mixed on an artist's palette.
With fruits of the earth equally vibrant in their color and form.
Maine was also a haven for antiquing - and how I loved looking at all the beautiful reminders of yesterdays. Old objects leave a special glimmer for all who can appreciate them - with memories still afloat in remnants of vestiges from long ago.
And where ever you looked, there were so many faces of all kinds - clowning around.
And is it possible that even statues can have their own secrets to laugh about?
There were classic styles of a bygone era-
And heads of time past-
With an old Fanny Brice Doll cheering us on, telling jokes
Knowing who will laugh last!
And faces from long ago- from other lands.
And, of course we had to see the sights of what Maine is noted for -
Its gleaming sea - just picture perfect
Filled with playful rowboats of all colors and sizes!
And coastline waters seem to jump right out to meet and greet passer's by-
Letting them know who's boss by its lion roar and sound of thunder
As its waves crashing against the shore's rough and rocked jagged edges.
And shells filled with stories from a time not known to us are sold: imparting their royal looks to the lucky buyer with a heart of gold.
And everywhere, there are fisherman's traps for catching lobsters
And to accompany them are the colorful buoys- to lift your spirits and make you smile.
And when the hustle and bustle of the day is enveloped into the quiet time of early evening... When the sun starts to gently fade away
With thoughts of reflection on our day's happenings,
Our tomorrows comings will slowly unfold.
The time comes for all to sleep
With the freedom to explore unlimited possibilities
And dream - larger than life
And all of our energies bonded together with grace and style
To spontaneously break out into a gentle soulful smile.
And then, when the sweet morning gently peeks its head out,
We wake to the start of a new day of opportunity
To explore the world before us,
To create and think
As far as our imagination can travel
And as wide as our mind can soar.
