Beyond My Back Door--By Barbara Siekierski--United States

Beyond My Back Door

White clouds dot
the ocean blue sky,
hanging by a thread.
Flowers, like the color
of a rainbow, sprout
along green grass.
Trees showing their buds
awake from a winter’s nap.
Birds sing in chorus,
inviting me to join them.
I come home from the park,
leaving the world behind,
only a memory of this day.

Barbara Siekierski is a writer from Swarthmore, PA.

  6. Hi Barbara, God bless you! I want to thank you for sharing "Beyond My Back Door." I have been thinking and talking to God about my life and things I enjoy, and your poem reflects some of those things, like "coming home from the park and leaving the world behind." It's always the things that are free in life that provide the most joy and happiness. Thanks again for sharing. Continued Blessings.

  7. Dear Barbara,
    Those special moments when we are feeling one with nature are among the best memories to hold in our hearts. How we wish we could linger longer and forget the hassles of everyday life. Quite a creative poem with vivid imagery to which everyone can relate. Excellent! Best wishes, Carolyn Devonshire

  8. Thank you, Robert, Dufresne, for the following comment--

    A bright refreshing litte poem, Barbara. The partaking and awareness of these things you mention are living in the present. That is so important for everyone whether we know it or not. We can never have enough reminders of this truth. There is peace in your poem as there was in the day you experienced it. Thank you.
