Envisions of another time

Illusions Blank Verse

It is not difficult to imagine this valley as it was before man put his hand upon the land, turning pristine meadows into orchards, farms, towns and roads while striving to retain the scenic beauty.
Ochre brown foothills surround this lush fertile valley and rise to mountainous heights densely covered with fir and pine which appear to march upward toward an azure blue sky and golden orb bathes the landscape in warmth and light.
Wildflowers grow everywhere in cracks and crevices, emitting a heady perfume to rival the blossoms of the orchards in springtime.
the heart, forever captivated, brings imagination into play turning reality into illusions as one envisions a time long ago when this valley and its' hills were know only to native people who rode here on mighty steeds, hunted, fished and camped by rippling stream ....clear blue tarn nestled in the foothills.

About this poem

I wrote this on June 18th 2000. I have no idea where this one came from except for a very vivid imagination and suddenly a poem pops into my head and I can't write it fast enough like many of my poems. I have no idea where they come from. This one is entitled as I: Imagined this Valley long ago. It was written on June 18 2000 by me Norma J. Suddard

Norma Suddard

Previously wrote tons of poems. This is only one of so many poems that I couldn't stop writing. I would just imagine in my mind about something or see a piece of broken shard and out came a poem. I have so many, many poems and stories in my books --several binders of poetry, stories and thoughts. I have over 2 large binders of poetry and more than 8 binders on stories I have written. I just see something or think about something and out comes a poem or story. I have also done Ancestry since 2004. My binders take up hugh shelves on both stories and poems. I am in about 10 books of poetry alone never mind the stories. I love to write. Most of my poems are rhymes but there are others that tell a story. Norma J. Suddard more…
