By the Bubbling Brook

Seated by the bubbling brook that tinkles
a rhapsody of lilting melodies.
I close my eyes, hear the final cadences
of a rhythm that my heart acknowledges.

The iridescent bubbles by the banks
shimmer and glisten in rapturous hues.
Serenading the shy blooms on the banks
they teem, create a joyous symphony.

The blue periwinkles & delphiniums
remind of the azure splashed on the sky
which looks like glossy satiny ribbons
tying up cottony bouquets of clouds.

My heart abounds with much unrestrained joy
for the vista is placid and tranquil.
The bucolic charm beckons, open armed
and I sink into it, I surrender.
