Yesterday I decided to take a walk in the park.
While out in nature I found some real treasures.
Lichen lying in my path.
Blown there for my admiration.
Moss stamped into the snow;
leaving the green tentacles dusted in white crystal flakes.
A twisted tree begging me to tell her story;
to explain her unique beauty.
A hollow log waiting for a friend in a colorful hat to stick their head in the hole on the other side.
Spotted trees like a pack of dalmatians taking a break to lick up the snow.
A knotted and twisted tree,
while beautiful on the ground,
lamented the days when it stood.
The path glowing in the afternoon sun.
A crazy tree top reminding me to keep reaching.
Another to remind me it's okay to lean a little in one direction or the other.
A windswept woman.
Peaceful in soul, and ready for the next adventure.
