A Walk on the Trail

IMG_3731

The duff was soft and easy
as I walked on the trail
The trees leaned in closer,
listening to my prayers
The wildflowers

continued to meditate
I searched for myself
along the way
sometimes with head
up to the sky

and the breeze
passing by –
walking at a pace
pleasant for turtles
I took my time
digging deeply inside
to discover my truth
but instead, I found you

Above All Else

I can’t figure it out.

I’ve pondered and analyzed
to my heart’s discontent

and still, nothing makes sense.

I think I’ll take a walk
into the woods,
to be embraced
by the gentle breeze,
to be touched by
serenity,

and I need to see the trees.
They have a keen sense
of awareness,

so I’m going to ask them.

Yes, the trees will know.

A Moment’s Peace

shade tree

Relaxation finds me beneath this tree
pondering life and sweet serenity
Butterflies do their carefree dance
in the air is the scent of romance
From where I sit in a patch of shade
squirrels scamper on the carpet of jade
Birds join in with a song or two
their melodies erase my moods of blue
Life bounces by, yet stillness abounds
calming every nerve with all unique sounds
This pillar of strength shelters and embraces
while emotions change to different faces
I close my eyes to the whispers of the breeze
allowing my mind to finally be at ease

Momentarily

While walking down the street,
I couldn’t help but feel peace,
listening to the rustling leaves

without the company of cars.
Then something pungent struck me,
so tangible, I could reach out

and touch…the fragrance of wealth,
and for a fleeting moment,
eyes slowly blinking,

I felt a sense of yearning.
Perhaps, there are those moments
where wishes aren’t so Heavenly,

but very earthly, indeed.
However, the hunger subsided
  as rapidly as it came to be

and I sighed, contentedly,
knowing God has provided me
with everything I truly need
