“A Walk Through the Forest”

A walk through the forest
to clear the mind
leaving life’s troubles
in the past…far behind

Living in the moment
the here the now
small things to worry about
wiping sweat from your brow

With Wind in hair
and Sun on face
Nature warms the heart
with God’s good grace

The bird’s sweet songs
fall on listening ears
simple things in life
that help us through the years

Wildflower fragrances
along trickling streams
foggy moisture-laden meadows
penetrating Sunbeams

Take a walk through the forest
and you will find
connecting with Nature
will give a clear mind

“Adirondack Autumn” Stony Creek, Northern New York

“Another Day”

Melting ice beats to a sacred rhythm, as the Sun’s warmth awakens the land from a cold night’s slumber. The nocturnal ones give way to the day shift, as sounds from the Northern forest commence their daily numbers. A cool mystical fog lays thick on the receding snow, from the lack of a stiff wind to guide it through the old growth, that has yet to be found by the logger. The Maple has gathered it’s sweet flow of liquid life to re-energize for another season, as the hawk on it’s limb spots the first morning meal, creeping out from last year’s leaf. And another day of life starts here on Earth.
