through the glistening river reeds
in between the little waves
diamonds of sunlight sparkle
gentle winds embrace me
with scents of juniper and pine
beneath the whispering giants
the summer sings with tiny beings
mournful loons and chickadees
and a dragonfly rests on my sleeve
every breath is sweet here
my paddle takes me here
where I can really breathe
this is where the poems grow

Ok. First of all I can't stay the hell out of your gallery, okay? LOL!  I mean, like WHAT? 

I didn't know you wrote, too!  This is awesome, Mina!!  When you are out in the middle of nowhere, doesn't part of you open up inside that you can't explain?  The best line in the poem is "Where I can really breathe".  Great work, Mina!

Thank you so much Bill!  I am not much of a writer at all.  I just plot down thoughts and sometimes I get lucky.
More of an accidental poet. But you are so right when you say that the wilderness opens you up ... and it's so addictive. 
Thank you for your wonderful comment! Means a whole lot to me!

You should do more, Mina.  It's good.   Even if it is just for a personal journal.  And your welcome, of course.

Would you mind if you give me some input on some of my poetry? I would greatly appreciate it. Also, this poem is quite nice and considering the pictures in your gallery, I would say that it captures nature finely.

Thank you very much. I am flattered that you ask me for my input, but please know I am just a hobbyist, and by no means any kind of expert. Just a humble nature lover really that likes to express this love through various hobbies. I have gone to read some of your poetry, and I'm still reading some, and I will leave you a comment on your profile page. :)
