In the Middle of Nature
Updated: Sep 15, 2019
In the middle of nature
Big rocks, pine trees and birches
Spring's insistent light shines
Increasing vibrancy of perception
Colours, sounds, shapes, textures
I am walking
Breaths of clean air
Fill me with spacious freedom
Pebbles and dirt show my trace
etched by the strength of my legs.
My mind melts and I understand
the birds chirping near and far
Roots extended deep into the soil
gripping rocks, crystals and black darkness.
My new friends are here
Exploring life, love, God.
Our eyes meet
without polite overlay
Intimately offering our insides
Risking it all Ignited by our longing
For real connection.
Curiosity overruling fear
Touched by all this beauty
I come home
With new friends
