A walk in the Woods

The sun was high in the sky, so hot, so unbearable
as the heat bares down, making life, unlivable.

A walk in the woods amongst the trees
tall waving branches makes a cooling breeze

Mystical noises erode from above
like squawking parrots,  making love

The leaves flutter to earth slowly at leisure,
drying to a crunch making walking a pleasure.

Your never alone as you walk these woods, 
ghosts of yesteryears would show if they could.

Instead they guide you along the paths of delight
your face lighting up as you see the sight.

Of butterflies gathered a hundred or more,
wings gently beating cooling their core.

Making a myriad of colour to please the soul
They are the flowers of the forest making you whole

The birds with their splendrous songs of life.
Not always in key their sounds easing your strife

Dont forget the tiny dormouse under the trees
looking for nuts and seeds, hunger to ease.

Find a grass covered mound, sit down ease your feet,
Close your eyes, listen to life from the drivers seat.

Your body is the forest, birds your ears, a tumultuous sound
Your eyes are the butterflies, life, the leaves falling around.

Thinking of these things help keeps your life in control
When life is hard, look within, look to your soul.

Take a walk in the Woods.
