Nature Walk …
A peaceful nature walk restores spirit
By taking one through a journey outdoors,
Gifted to us by the Mother, so near it
Is tranquility and beauty galore.
Glorious beauty to enjoy, restores
Us to who we truly are, so dear it
Gives us whatever it is we may need
At the moment, to remember and heed.
I find it good when on a nature walk
To keep my mind open, and just listen,
Focus thoughts on nature, never to talk,
To not intrude on nature’s own voices,
Sounds of nature, the occasional hawk,
Allow beauty all around to glisten,
To remain silent and just be a part
Of nature within my soul, mind and heart.
I love to draw my senses to one thing,
To know how it feels, see how it looks,
Listen close to its voice, to hear it sing,
To see if it thrives by the mountain brooks,
Prefers quiet shade or with sunny fling,
To dazzle the eye in a special nook,
Where I can sit a spell, quietly rest
To absorb and just admire nature’s best.
Silently I listen, communicate
In my mind with the beauty around me,
There I feel the love of nature and wait
For the inspiration that surrounds me,
To become one with this beauty so great,
It fills me with Mother’s love that grounds me,
To the core of life, her world of love
I am so at home with, so in awe of.
