A Morning Stroll

Searching for perfection

on this beautiful day

a storm washed out a gulley

pushing rocks out of the way

Water swirling

causing a waterfall to blossom

I saw it immediately

the beauty is awesome

The perfect stone appears

now clean and pure

colors reflecting from it

magical I am sure

Picking it up

rubbing it on my face

cleansing my skin

taking away all waste

Slipping from my hand

the stone returns to the river

splashing cool water

causing me to shiver

The waterfall disappears

as the water becomes quite still

the end of an adventure

that was a thrill

Walking into the woods

heading back home

enjoying the magic

the freedom to roam
