The Meadow


        On a crisp autumn afternoon, I sat idly under an enormous oak tree

passed by me, the whirlwind scooped up a dormant pile of leaves lying next to

the oak tree.  The leaves appeared to come alive twisting, turning, and dancing

about the meadow.  They were sporting their new fall colors of red, orange,

brown, and yellow.   The brittle autumn leaves seemed to be having a party.  As

meadow.  The memories of my last visit are vivid with relaxed and peaceful

thoughts  motivated by the images, scents, and sounds of the meadow.


        The beauty of the meadow in the summer is unequaled.  My memories

As the meadow’s growth flourished, I kept track of the succession of plants....   [tags: Observation Essay, Descriptive Essay]

Essay on The Meadow Pond

- A short walk to Meadow Pond: following the stone wall up the dirt road, FOR SALE sign next to an empty house with a clear-cut yard. Struggling to escape the perpetual thoughts that always seem to pull me in – where do we go from here. – a golden smile in the afternoon sunlight – branded to my mind like a red hot iron, trying to dismiss them. Looking up at the road ahead of me, I smile – only thoughts. The cold air hits the skin of my face and I stick my hands in my pockets.

"It 's not like we have Vegas or a courthouse to go to." "I have a place," she says smiling. "Follow me." She runs off of the freeway and looks over her shoulder. "Wait!" He laughs and runs after her. She leans up against a tree laughing, waiting for him. She has a kind of understated beauty, perhaps it 's because she is so disarmingly unaware of her beauty....   [tags: Debut albums, Love, Mary J. Blige]

Descriptive Essay - What Comforts You?

- ... My friends and I created a ritual to eating burritos, and it created a bond between us. In the late hours of the night, my friends and I would have our burrito session on the stoops of Bedford Avenue in Williamsburg enjoying the scene while indulging on our bundles of mouth melting burritos. These small moments are what I live for. Now when I eat burritos this is all I think about, good memories and a story still developing. Some say that La Cumbre Taqueria were the ones to create the legacy of the mission-style burrito, but others say that El Faro were the originators....   [tags: Chipotle Mexican Grill, Mexican cuisine, Taco]

Essay on The Meadow

- The Meadow There was excellent July day, one of those days, which occur only then, when weather was established for a long time. The sky is clear from the earliest morning; morning dawn does not blaze by the fire: it spills by gentle bloom.

Nature in the Poems: The Fish by Elizabeth Bishop and The Meadow Mouse by Theodore Roethke

- Two poems, “The Fish” by Elizabeth Bishop and “The Meadow Mouse” by Theodore Roethke, include characters who experience, learn, and emote with nature.

Descriptive Essay: A Beautiful Place

- I think we all have a beautiful place in our mind. I have a wonderful place that made me happy a lot of times, years ago. But sometimes I think that I am the only person who likes this place and I'm asking myself if this place will be as beautiful as I thought when I will go back to visit it again.

This place is in the country in an old region named Appalachia, a small piece of the Appalachian Mountains, in a town named Pikeville....   [tags: Descriptive Essay Example]
