Land of Emerald Dreams by Wayne Visser

By Wayne Visser

Low clouds of grey left far behind
Exchanged for open skies of blue
Black asphalt trails and dusty fields
Give way to scenes of verdant hue

Beneath the mountain’s misty brow
Beneath the oak trees’ dappled shade
A canvass for the nomad’s brush
A staging post for passing trade

Drink in the cool of whitewashed walls
Drift off to cricket symphonies
Breathe deep the scent of sun-bleached thatch
Awake to birdsong melodies

Past craggy cliffs of rusty shards
Through hidden tracks of forest greens
Refreshed by waterfall cascades

Behold the land of emerald dreams

Hello, I am enjoying your poetry. We are engaging with people using Haiku form on our Facebook site this week with the topic of Human Rights. As a poet, can you help us to spread the word? We know how important writing is, and how much our young people need to practice their writing skills. Thanks for sharing your work with us! Missy (Facebook/Questjobtips)
