You Have Not Left Me

 You have not left me, you are…

The crystal clarity of a nearby robin’s eloquent solo on a frosty
 winter’s day,
the subtle sweet almond fragrance of pink apple blossom in the
 month of May,
the tranquility of a cloudlesss cornflower blue sky over a silver
  tinted sea,
the timeless presence and commanding majesty of a wise oak
  sentinel tree.

Nestled under a copper beech hedge the simple elegance of a wild
    blue harebell,
a sunlit grass bank with native lemon primroses in an undisturbed 
  woodland dell,
 the flowers of entwined golden honeysuckle richly scenting the 
  evening air,
 on the stubble of a harvested corn field the playful chasing of the
 springtime hare. 

A field of flowering poppies, reminiscent of a Monet painting with
  a rich scarlet glow,
 a woodland snowdrop’s delicate bell shaped flower peeping above 
a dusting of snow,
the arch of an artist’s palette rainbow briefly painting rain clouds of
   slate grey,
frost tinted amber and copper leaves highlighted by a tapering shaft 
 of sun’s rays.

A light breeze creating liquid gold ripples on a summer field of 
    undulating corn,
 white horses riding the crests of restless grey waves in a tumultuous
 winter’s storm,
 awakening from winter slumber, unfurling leaves being visited by an
   inquisitive bee,
in the ever-changing beauty of the seasons, landscape and wildlife,
you are always there surrounding me.
