Waltz of Nature

When the world weighs heavy on this tender heart,
I get out in glorious nature and take a walk
to feel the warm sun upon my wrinkled face,
to marvel at the majesty of graceful trees,
swaying in an elegant waltz with the summer breeze

I hear the soothing trill of doves perched among the leaves
chasing elusive shade throughout the sweltering day
as they rest, take a break from the scorching heat
I continue my stroll, to find the balance I seek

With each footstep, my worries become lighter
I find myself smiling at the happy brilliant flowers
and marvel how they stand tall in daybreak’s hours
never faltering or worrying about anything at all

  1. How wonderful that you have a lovely garden in which to walk. I too get out into nature to walk and forget my troubles. But you know, sometimes, the troubles are too much to bear.

  2. Yes, humans have made life so complicated that it has become their ruin but are too blind to see it. Perhaps I’ll come back as a flower next time, but sadly I won’t know it as I’ll only have one job to do and that is attract to fertilizers and produce offspring.while sitting in the dirt!
