Wanderlust

The rainforest

wildflowers and wild birds

They are the miracles

if we choose to

not blindly pass through.

~

Will we choose to wander

never to behold

the beauty

the mundane is

so eager to offer?

~

A world so pristine

awaits on

the tips of our lashes.

    • There’s no doubt that the rainforest is beautiful… as you would know, Gail, from your trail rides… particularly the Daintree in Queensland and all it’s beauty! I am always amazed when visiting these sites and so glad that they have been declared world heritage sites. It is really an experience never to be missed!! Appreciate your time here and your comment. Have a lovely weekend! πŸ™‚

      • Absolutely. The rainforest is a visual feast. I also enjoyed this poem very much. Too much of nature’s beauty is missed from not taking time to simply see what’s there before us. I hope you’ve had a good weekend too πŸ™‚

  11. Iris, a wonderful poem in celebration of the beauty of nature all around us…it’s easy to dash past, too busy to stop and observe what

    ‘awaits on
    the tips of our lashes.’
    Brilliantly written
