Nature’s Gift

dVerse Poets – Haibun Monday – That Picnic


Photo: Walyunga National Park.



A short drive to Walyunga for early spring to see white water and take a trail walk. Backpacks filled with thermos, lunch, and picnic blanket. We find a quiet space and sit to wonder at the water flowing past and spring’s evidence everywhere.

Time was nature’s gift
inhibitions flew away,
heron were calling

    I had to check wise old Google to discover Walyunga National Park is in Australia. What a beautiful spot for a picnic and a feast of nature’s wonders as well.
