My Secluded Mountain Forest Nook …
My secluded mountain forest nook
is where I go when life is troublesome,
and I need to clear my head to look
at what my spirit knows where I’m from.
When life is crowding me I seek my home,
deep inside me as I sit by a brook
where the cool waters giggle over rocks
and on the other side I watch a fox.
The fox is just as curious about me
as I am about what he is up to
when he was chasing a bumblebee
till the bee crossed the brook and flew by me.
Fox watched for a while longer to see
if the bee would fly back to his side soon,
then turned away and sauntered off slowly,
probably not too happy and lowly.
I think the fox is quite young, loves to play,
but wandered far from his mother and den,
for I just saw a bigger fox, afraid
she won’t find her sweet little kit again.
She sniffed around, looked in the direction
little fox had taken not long ago,
raised her head and made a good connection,
then followed the scent of one she did know.
Mother fox came back, showing affection
to her little one then away they go.
Such are the delightful things when I look
around from my nice mountain forest nook.
Spending time in nature like this today
is how I find peace in my heart and soul.
Whether I am there in my physical
or there in spirit it is magical.
