‘My Secret Sanctuary’-Poem

My Secret Sanctuary

Snow pack desolves, shrinking icecaps
Trickles, connects with succinct spring
Runs down icy, joins brook
Babbling descends to stream

Stream meanders past meadow land
With butterfly weed, rippling grasses
Flows through tributary into river
Enters the rocky canyon

Cliffs high as cotton clouds
Jagged, angular, shadowed sunlight
Chilly air rising off splashing rocks
Echoes of rushing, rumbling

Fresh scent of Blue Spruce,sappy pinecones
Churning white caps a mile long
Cutting rocky gorge

Raging river travels with purpose
Reverberates around bend
Water falls towards paradise
Pummels down to form pool

Surrounded by grassy fronds
Deerhair Bulrush,
Hydrangea
Lady Rue and Button Bush trees

My Secret Sanctuary
