Not a sound can be heard
Except an occasional chirp
And the wind’s whisper
Gliding through evergreens
Protecting from sun’s burning rays
Peace flows through veins
Its gentle movement calms the mind
As fragrance renews all senses
With my love beside me,
Gratitude embodies my heart
Together we stay mesmerized
Sitting on the shore
Watching the dragonflies
And reveling in the melody of silence
Lauren Scott (c) 2020
We’re off to the lake next week, so I’ll be disconnected from technology.
It’ll be good to get away and unwind in the fresh mountain air.
I’ll see you when I return, and in the meantime, I want to give a Big
“Thanks” to all of you who pop in a regular basis and to those who
visit now and then. All I can hope for is to write a poem or story
that resonates with you, so that you’ll have a special take-away
each time you leave. Thank you, Thank you! I appreciate you so
much! Stay well, stay happy, stay healthy! Love, Lauren 💗💗💗

I love this poem full of life, love and gratitude. Your words always speak volumes to me. I feel your heart will be filled with poetic soulsongs out among the water and the evergreens, surrounded by dragonfly magic. Safe and joyful journeying! ❤️🙏❤️
Aww, what a lovely comment, MW, thank you so much! Yes, being in the mountains is truly magical. It’s our home away from home, even in mask-wearing times. Stay well, my friend. 🥰🎇💗
Have a great time, Lauren. It was always a big treat to go to Tahoe. We loved it both in the summer and winter..
Thanks, John! The mountains and lake are truly magical, aren’t they? Have a great weekend!

Thanks, Betty! Yes, peace and calm is what we’re looking forward to. Disengaging with the news, too. 🤪 I always take too many pics, so no problem there. 🙂 Love and hugs back to you! 🤩😍💗💗
