hey peace seekers,
i hear words forming already into my hippie head so here we go with some free verse, let’s see what spills out…
i slid my feet tentatively into the cool clear water
where a small fish brushed against my foot
and i understood
how it feels to be a small fish in a big pond
i knew we had a bond.
i looked across the grass to see a deer standing there looking at me
in her eyes i could see
and wished us both well.
i came upon a turtle with somewhere to go
he seemed determined and mindful and seemed to know
life’s not a race but a balancing act
keeping your murals and peace in tact
i took a life lesson with me that day
feeling a little like the stray
with no where to belong but to each other
we’re all really just sisters and brothers
we’re not so different the animals and me
we all have hearts with which we should see
the beginning of everything and endless
i think i like it.
i hope your day is beautiful and i hope you can stop by again tomorrow!
