We welcome back the renewal of spring this week in the midst of chaos. To remember the beauty in our world, here’s a poem that shows spring breaking through on my magical trail.
The trail weaves through the forest
Winding around logs of past lives
It takes me past a mysterious pit
While brushing the edge of wilderness.
I meander slowly on the red dirt
Like a river on a warm summer day.
Each step brings me closer to my soul
As spring magic sprinkles the trail
Awakening the beauty of renewal
It rises from its quiet hibernation
With a long stretch, its eyes open.
It embraces me in a cyclic cuddle
That flows through me an awareness.
Each tree becomes a welcomed friend
The birds are now my exclusive guides
While the insects teach me about life.
This eternal nexus tethers me to the moment
Grateful, my meditative walk continues
Guided only by the magic on my trail.
