The Lily pad
______________________
The Lily pads upon the water
In a small pond, they float
Like small clouds in the sky lazily floating by
A world full of problems fades, as you lay on the ground in the shade of the weeping willow tree
To sit on the grassy mound above the shore
On a sunny afternoon with but a few clouds to dot the otherwise clear day I find myself lost in trance watching the birds come in
Landing on the water with a little splash, looking for food and a place to rest
Ducks and geese plenty playing among cattails and the reeds,
All they sing and fill the air with the sounds happiness
Water lilies layout before you, as if Monet Had dab the oils and had painted this beautiful day.
In the distance, you can see the old arch bridge that crosses the quite lily lake, and you can see the travelers as they make their way across heading for their destination to busy not to notice or even pausing to see the beauty that lies before their face
Here is a world at peace, where all sorts of creatures come to play and drink
If I had my way, on the bank I would stay, a portrait lost in time
A painting, I would be, a painting by Monet
