Alabama Meadow


Alabama Meadow

In this place
Where it's warm and soft
Where God's breath breathes
And troubles are not
A hidden life
Made simply for me
I pray a prayer,
Then sleep on the leaves

In this place
I befriended the clouds
And they make a shadow
I'm under right now
I built a fort
There in the trees
 And whisper my secrets
Till the moon I shall see

In this place
The butterflies sing
The squirrels are jealous
'Cause they don't have wings
The daisies all sparkle
And the stars wink at me
In this Alabama meadow
 I am set free

Fantastic. So dainty and joyous, makes me want to be in that meadow right now! I particularly loved the couple of lines containing pairing verbs and nouns ("breath breathes" and "pray a prayer"). Simple, but unusual, little trick that works really rather well. Well done Hannah :)

Interesting theme...the and I find a specialness in a place of splendor, whether it be an escape from reality, or just a place to meditate.............beautiful, indeed......................gogant

Very nice, realistic, and a true essence from the heart. Everyone seems to have a special place they love to go in solitude of reminiscence and just to see with no fears near. Great Job!

Great write, HannahLynn! Reminds me of secret places I used to go to long ago in my youth to be alone and be at peace. Thanks for the time trip home!

Thank you all so much

In science one tries to tell people, in such a way as to be understood by everyone, something that no one ever knew before. But in poetry, it's the exact opposite.

Franz Kafka (1883-1924) Czech writer.
