As I walk through the meadow,
I immerse in the beauty of the open field.
I gravitate my attention toward the
beautiful lupine and bright colored Indian paintbrush
that surround the wilderness, scattered across the forest grounds.
I hearken to the sound of a nearby stream.
As I try to find my way toward the
tranquil flowing river
I notice a deer in the distance.
I follow it curiously and cautiously,
attempting not to frighten him in any way.
Surprisingly he leads me to the vast stream;
I watch while he drinks from the calm,
radiant waters that reflects the exquisite creature.
Soon he is aware of my presence and rushes past me,
back into the wilderness.
I then closed my eyes to absorb
the immaculate beauty of nature.
Suddenly I awake
becoming aware of my alarm clock ringing.
While I got ready for school
I wished that dreams could last forever.
