As I leave the house, I pass the iris leaning softly into a sea of green leaves
I notice shapes and details and colours as I stroll and unravel my day
tiny grasses sway and tremble on Nature's summer blanket
and a single stem brings me back to simplicity
Fresh green foliage waves me on my way
Soft tendrils brush away the little knots that appeared during the day
and the last rays of sunshine illuminate the trunk of a tree
to come back to my centre.
Dappled skies show that a change could be expected
yet on the other side, the innocent pink and blue sky enhances the clear-cut silhouette
of a tree
and gives me another point of view.
Do you like to unwind in nature at the end of your day?
It helps me let go of all that has passed
and brings me back into the moment
I am actually living.
