Follow Me and See My Nature Views



Welcome to Day 29 of #write31days. Follow is the prompt word for Five Minute Friday Free Writes. I thought it might be fun to take you on a walk with me around our property. So follow me!


Follow me


It’s a beautiful day though a bit crisp. Perfect for taking photos and walking around.



First stop is the chicken yard where hens and rooster mostly stay. Sometimes they go into the woods to scrounge around for food. The rooster finds a tasty treat and calls the hens to follow.ย 





Next we go up the back driveway to the far corner of the property. I love the way the sunlight filters down through the leaves. Shadow and light play hide and seek.



Sun rays filter down

As shadow and light play games

All along the ground


Now it’s time to lift our eyes up to the sky and stand in awe of the tall stately trees.



Lift your eyes higher

Stately trees reach to the sky

Sun is peeking through




Now cast your gaze farther into the woods. Look closely. What do you see?



Stand here for awhile

Cast your gaze into the woods

Tell me what you see


Walking back down the hill we see the chickens again along with a little more of the property and view.



Now turn your head to the right and, you will see the house again.



I hope you enjoyed our walk. Now it’s time to go inside. Warmth awaits me there. Won’t you come in and join me for a nice hot cup of tea?

  1. Dear Gayl,
    Thank you for taking us along for a virtual walk with you! When it’s hard to get together in real life, sometimes it’s fun to imagine along with our friends! Your view certainly is beautiful there! I can see how your place inspires such a love of nature and creativity. I hope you are enjoying your Birthday Week, my friend! Love and Hugs to you! xoxo

    1. Dear Bettie,
      Yes, it is fun to imagine that I actually had some of my online friends along for the walk. ๐Ÿ™‚ Thank you for “walking” with me. The view really is wonderful and being outside always inspires me. Thank you, I am enjoying my birthday week! Blessings, love and hugs to you, my dear sister/poet friend! xoxo

  2. Oh I did enjoy my virtual walk with you, Gayl! It was especially lovely to see the stately trees and strutting hens!Thank you for showing us the beautiful sights you have when you wander around your plot. No wonder you find the porch views and walks you take a great precursor to creativity. I also see from Bettie’s comment above that a birthday is imminent for you or has just happened. Hope you enjoy your special day with sweet (let there be cake!) celebration, coupled with grateful rest after your labours this month. Blessings, love and extra birthday hugs to you, dear friend! xoxo ๐Ÿ™‚

    1. Dear Joy, I’m so glad you enjoyed it. ๐Ÿ™‚ We’ll just have to imagine that we did it together, won’t we? It’s so nice to be outdoors and sit on the porch just to look and listen. Yes, my birthday is coming on Thursday. Sunday was Jamie’s birthday so we had a kind of combined birthday celebration with cheese, wine and poetry. Even some of the kids joined in with the poetry. They did very well. Thank you for the birthday wishes and extra hugs! Blessings, love and hugs to you,too, my dear sister/poet/friend! xoxo
