nature

 

i sat transfixed 

the moon was conducting its nightly service

the wind bowed the tree limbs as violins
 
the crickets chirped a steady percussion
 
the night birds added scat as the coyotes howled the blues
 
the roar of a nearby river underscored all with majesty
 
the campfire snapped its fingers in approval
 
and the fireflies were dancing notes in the black page sky
 
it is a song that will never be captured on paper
 
it is a song that will never be forgotten
 
for it is written by God

Really enjoyed your metaphors in this one. BTW....sorry if I haven't responded sooner...I actually have responded to some poems but I am obviously technology challenged and only just now have figured out (I think) how to navigate booksie. Carol
