Embracing the Valley

Sitting next to the tree

enjoying the detail of the valley

filled with such precision

a brilliant creation finale

Staring at the mountain

a forum for spring and winter to meet

sumptuous snow sparkling in the sun

its height tempering the heat

Water falling into a river

leading to a stream

embracing the accuracy of gravity

the sound lulling me into a dream

A prodigal daughter

always in motion

never taking the time

to embrace an emotion

Anchoring to the ground

like a tree establishing roots

breathing in the fresh air

seeding a life to bear fruit

A mist in the rain washes

away my desire to be alone

joining those who live in the valley

I am home
