Morning Meander


Warm sunshine

Cool breeze

New grass

Fresh leaves.


Pine cones,

released

along the path.

Trees dressed in summer foliage.




Busy birds and butterflies

Wind hushing trees

Playing with their leaves.


Naked tree

Standing tall.

Many holes

A woodpecker?


A tweet

A chirp

A coo coo coo.

Echoes echoes.

A shout far off.

Aeroplane overhead.


My shadow

My steps

My rhythm.

In

These woods.


I smell pine.

I smell gorse

I smell freshness on the breeze.

I smell warmth sweetly wrapped

in possibility.


Forest life unfolds.

To nature's own rhythm.


I feel your warmth

on my face

my skin.

Rosy cheeky freckled.


I feel alive

out here

with you.


I breathe you in.

Let go of plans

And release


To

being

here

now.


I breathe

fully.

Now.

I.

Am.

Here.
