Reservation: Living in the Moment

cypress swamp from left side march 31


I have a reservation

to live in each moment this year

filling the journey

with happiness and not fear


Walking across the bridge

taking a new step each day

stopping to inhale the fresh air

observing the seasons along the way


Enjoying the cypress trees

basking in the revel of a frog’s song

there is a snake in the water

it appears to be six feet long


Basking in the silence

there is a cold brisk wind

beauty in the stillness

till spring brings life again


Summer and fall

the leaves show such color

from green to orange and yellow

a feast for a nature lover


Meditation ends

there is joy across the land

my soul is renewed

as each moment begins to expand

  1. Wonderful, just wonderful. My jaw is on the floor. 😀 You don’t need paint when you have words like that. Your skill of vercing and rhyming, is astonishing. I-I don’t know what else to say. Ahh… Mother Nature. 😀

  2. This is such a cool post, reminded me of walking on a tall bridge looking out over the horizon!
