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. 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
