Be Still

Be still.
Hear your heart,
listen to that which gives you bliss,
behold the course that the soul sails easily,
follow this path and breathe
with the thunder of tides ~

Sometimes the path less traveled looks like a greater possibility for snakes….I took the one more traveled : )

The Path I Choose

poetry No Comments »

The path I choose
is draped
with lush tall trees~
magical green.
Pine permeates the air~
I breathe in nature.
The path whispers,
“Come walk with me.”
I step on to the soft earth,
listen to the connection
my bare feet make,
feel the cool
spongy moss.
I pause,
drop my head back,
raise my arms
honor the forest’s majesty,
its tunnel of foliage protecting me.
“Here your thoughts are crisp, relaxed,” the path says.
“I am your friend
you may share all with me
I shall love you unconditionally.”
A cranberry cardinal,
flies ahead;
an orchard oriole
glides past;
then a bright lemon warbler
lights the way.
Clumps of fern
line the trail,
sway slightly
with a soft breeze,
waving me along.
High timbers creak
in the wind overhead.
Each stride forward,
alters my perspective
from the step before.
I walk with purpose,
invited by the point
that appears
as the end of the path.
I continue one foot
in front of other
meeting and re-meeting
the soft dirt~
it seems the end-point
is not within reach
Suddenly,
I realize,
it is not about arrival,
but rather
about the embrace
of each step
along the way.
