Poem #16

Today…. per the word of the day… I shall “crank” out another poem!

ANYWAY…. Yesterday we went for a walk around the lake.  My husband started to get a bit frustrated (LOL) as I stopped to look at the flora and fauna.  Up close.  I smelled it, ran my hands over it looked at how the light hit everything.  I was able to use it all in a few poems however!

We took a walk
In the sun
On a Spring day
Circling the lake
Pausing to smell
To touch
To listen

The sun warm
On our faces
The forest floor, 
Long dormant
Under ice
Warmed
The scent,
Rich and earthy.Screen Shot 2018-04-16 at 8.25.40 AM.png

The moss 
On the trees,
Where the sun 
Never shines
Was dry 
Feathery
The bark warm
I put my cheek
Against it. 

The squirrels 
Chittered
Chastised us.
Rivers
Rushed and roared
Breezes brushed
Rustled branches.

I am renewed
Because
We stopped to smell
To touch
To listen
