Sweet Balmaha Bay

Scotland has the most beautiful scenery, I am so grateful to be living here.  This next poem is inspired by my visit last year to Balmaha, Scotland (photo below) on a frosty winter’s day.  This magical little beauty spot left me with a diamond experience.  If you ever come to Scotland, this place is certainly worth a visit, you’ll never forget it.  Wishing you  a diamond day, lots of love Clarabelle.

Sweet Balmaha Bay

Balmaha, an inspiring place,
Oh how I love, your beautiful face.
The silent lake, speaks many words,
A magical paradise, beneath the flight of birds.
My soul’s at home, when I visit you,
I feel at one, below the sky so blue.
As I tie a yellow ribbon, around the old oak tree,
I appreciate your world, for all to see.
The air is clean, fresh and new,
The shimmering sunlight, makes a stunning view.
And the many boats, who sail in leisure,
Uplifting spirits, you provide great pleasure.
In hail or rain, sunshine or snow,
Your tranquil beauty, will always show.
For the depths of your heart, are in everyone,
Sweet Balmaha Bay under the horizon sun.

The Water’s Edge

Yesterday I had this inner calling to go close to the water, so I did.  When I got there, I instantly felt at peace, surrounded by nature which was indeed nurturing my soul.  I then got my notepad out and I wrote the following poem. Today, listen to your calling, inner silence is when it’s at its loudest.  Clarabelle

The water's edge

The Water’s Edge

The water’s edge, sets my soul free,

Nature’s hands, are holding me.

Open space, silence in the lake,

This is real here, nothing seems fake.

A treasure island, where tranquility prevails,

A rower in the distance, sets his own sails.

***

The rain may be falling, but it is a beautiful sight,

Soft cloudy skies, birds beneath, in full flight.

The ripples on the water, come out to where I stand,

I take a deep breath in, and reach out my hand.

I feel no coldness, for love shares this place,

Its beauty is inside me, and puts a smile upon my face.
