Walking lightly upon the Earth
senses roaring with beauty
surrounding us.

Our feet absorb
the energy of life.
The wind tickles our back
with twitching eyes.
The lullaby of the forest.

Fallen autumn leaves
shower this temple
with peace and love.

Our friend, Ponderosa
glistens the sun off her
fragile needles.

Our hearts burst wide open.
Fairies dance
in the radiant sunlight.

Walking and wondering
the forest knows
my pain and yearnings.
To fall
is to melt away
with the evening sun.

A vision:
The wind roars through the forest
Responding to my longings.
Searching for the humble courage
to feel everything
through every cell in your  body.
