A Walk In the Woods

Forest shot

The trees shape a lush canopy,
a secret passage into a magic world
of mixed browns and greens,

Ever ready to disappear,
a deer watches at a distance
with deep, loving eyes
and nervous curiosity.

The unraveling exuberance
of nature embraces my body
as I touch the heavy breeze,
and moist and sweat cling to my skin.

Oaks and cedars, birches and firs
share their renewing breath,
while blooming magnolias wrap
their fragrant and colorful elegance
around me.

I feel the pulse of the earth,
like a slithering swell of life,
transmuting my every care
into the quiet and joyful awareness
of infinite peace within.
