taking a walk

Walking along this road
has been a favorite for me.
Walking away my troubles
it seems to set my spirit free.

The lush foliage of the trees
that overgrow their right of way
like rich tapestry in beauty.

From the gentle breeze sway
spanning protective walls of
leaves in all hues of forest green.
in this beautiful natural scene.

The gentle curves and dips
of this soft road
add to the majesty and depics
of the imagery bestowed.

Every corner brings new awe,
every dip a heightened view
with the beauty of all elements.

A collage does nature glue.
Wild flowers line the edge
lending a heady scent.
Glistening with the morning dew
like diamond dust they gleam.

The twittering of a songbird
delight one and all.
Awakening a symphony of music
from others, trilling answer to its call.

A raucous fit of scolding
from a squirrel hiding upon a limb
angrily protecting his stash of nuts
his cache filled to the brim.

The pine fresh scent of the evergreen
opens my nostrills wide.
It scent is carried aloft in gentle whiffs
on the morning breezy tide.

My feet perform a happy dance
as I meander up this dusty trail.

Breezes through hollow boughs
make sounds much like a flute
the serene music that it plays.

This road I will always stray
when I am around this way.
