Juniper breeze

The breeze is young, and the glades of grass sway together

The fiery globe suspended in the sky throws a wash of soft orange onto the vast field.

Dandelions fly merrily- along with the breeze they have someplace to go

Butterflies flit erratically over the yellow coneflowers that gently bob their heads-

Their colours are nature’s very own kaleidoscope.

Birds croon softly, settled snugly in their nests,

Heads hidden within the shelter of their wings

 And the crickets begin their unified chorus, the music that would grace the evening.

Faraway horizons show silhouettes of vast mountains standing like protectors of the green world

And from a bare spot, an odd Juniper bush sends a wave of woody breeze along the prairie.

The breeze is young and rejuvenating, healing to the soul.

The aromatic Juniper breeze, bringing back memories of a little backyard

Where bushes and bluish-purple Juniper berries grew –

Bringing a zephyr of pine like freshness all around then

And now- Juniper breeze completing the evening.

The entire month of April, I am blogging from A2Z powered by #BlogchatterA2Z
