so inspirational, how beautiful and pure,
pastures and the golden sun shines down on pretty lands,
and rocky spaces blessed with native greens around it.
on the edge of every rock to see far and wide,
breeze swooning along the fields in utter content silence,
joy to see lush hamlets, distant woodlands.
nests in trees with birds singing so tranquil,
come and go but rural stays, we enjoy the beauty of this rural way.
settlements we walk upon once had common heritage,
pasture once working through the night, now lays bare,
seek to travel and lay our excited eyes on these landscapes,
before us made this land we hold so dear.
ploughed the fields as women milked the cows,
of this once settlement learn more at home.
cherished time that brought people together,
assemblage of social interaction in life's natural habitat.
this remembered as we enjoy the open land,
a time when this place was a binding settlement.
farm is a family affair, truly grueling but utterly worth it,
hands at work on the fields, in the home and with cattle,
organic starting point from hand to mouth,
all day to lambing through the night.
tractors trembling the soils below,
hay is stacked and crops grow.
rural retreat families call home,
generations have lived for many of year,
years go by while the bread and butter is slower.
progress is in there blood,
five till nine they tend to their livelihood.
ranches to orchards it's all about love,
the familys take back the farmers hard worked goods.
beautiful bird you see in flight,
so sweet and lands so light,
its way through nature's presence,
finds its food to take home to its chicks.
glance a second to know its safe,
bird roams around branches.
the edge of the stream and grass so high,
to all making your day seem right,
time falls as they fly away,
their goodbyes at the end of the day.
open fields we stand in opens our minds,
our thoughts of the city,
in that one space and feel the air,
free to remember your imagination.
down on fields so green with comfort,
up to the sky and dream...for a while,
find your core and glow,
your feelings to a whole new place.
your arms and legs and breath,
heart is at one now in this field.
dance on this rural spot,
bring the family for picnics,
take pictures to remember,
on hands and hopscotch,
rural spot is for keeps,
place we grew up,
place we never forget,
is our place, everyone's place,
is your rural spot.
