Ten Minutes in a Paddock


So peaceful is silence without the roar of trucks, buses and cars.

The pace of country life is so easy to bear.

To watch a sunset is magic….

I took ten minutes from my rushed life to sit and watch and breathe.

I saw…………….

Christmas beetles crackling

Amongst the leaves,

Baby Galahs screeching for food,

Magpies and wagtails

Nestling with their young.

Paddocks covered in

Masses of purple flowers,

And Thousands of bees swarming

Collecting their pollen.

Small clouds filtered

Throughout the aqua sky,

The potent sun’s reflection

Shone crimson and gold colours

Upon them lighting up the earth.

As the sun slowly disappeared,

The colours faded.

Down went the sun,

Away with its glow.

Gone for another day;

Darkness had fallen

The brilliant sunset

Gone until tomorrow…

  1. “New every morning is His love” – easy to be too busy to see it in what He’s created, what He’s doing and especially Who He is. Thank’s Carol

  2. I have to say it again; you always remind us of God in the things He’s created. As Francine had said, even if no one ever spoke a word to us about Him, nature would testify!

  3. I think that God was reminding me of creation way back when I wrote it. I don’t know whether I could really clearly see and hear his word 20 years ago..

    I do remember the day I wrote it. We were spending the new year in a south western country town called Harden where my mother in law lived.. I wrote it from her back fence which overlooked acres of rolling hills and a golf course..
