In The Meadow


Out hiking one day I happened  upon a little meadow.
The sun was on its downward path and its light
shown gently . A quiet stream came from 
the northern hills and wound a ribbon through
the  grass. Blackbirds called from the reeds 
along its shore, and the shy brown eyes of a
doe watched me from a little pool where she
had come to drink. A wild rose bush trailed its
vine across a fallen log, and the buzz of bees
came to me ,as lovely as a symphony. I could 
only stand and drink in the scene before me,
 fearing I might intrude on natures wonder.
It came to me that when the trivia and angst 
of daily living become a burden, remembering
 moments like this might lighten the load and
give perspective to the lives we lead.



This little meadow is in the Lassen National
Park in northern California. It is one of the
 most beautiful places I have ever seen. A bit 
of a hike, but worth every step.
