Listen closely and you’ll hear the song of the Golden Hare,
Pouring on moonbeams down mountain paths,
Dripping in golden drops across dawn.
The mountains mysteries are birthed in its notes,
As natures wildness pulses through the veil,
Tumbling carelessly down into the soft Glens.
Hi, I'm Seonaid, and I share my home on the shores of Loch Ness deep in the Scottish Highlands with my husband, my son and a couple of dogs. I love art which is here now and gone tomorrow...like food and nature...but also have a passion for vintage and the ancient past! Nature is my favourite muse, with her wild ever shifting seasons. I have been using and teaching mindfulness and relaxation for over 12 years, and have yet to become any sort of expert :-) I'm a Psychotherapist and Cancer Support Specialist in Maggies Highlands

That is really a gorgeous word-picture.
For some time I used to feature Really Awful Hare Jokes on my blog, but I suppose you would consider those hare-esy and hare-ible in the hare-gstreme.
Too funny…..glad you enjoyed. I like your description, a word picture 🙂
Magical golden hare – I must look out for him on my travels, and I enjoyed your poem.
