Natures Path

Written by: Ronald Karzmarczyk

The moon shining ,is my only light,
as I walk along this path tonight,
but some areas seem to be over dark,
as I travel through this nature park.
branches scratch my arm and slap my face,
can't see the path, there is no trace,
I travel right along trying the path to see,
I'm walking slow as my nose smacks a tree.
I can hear critters, they are all around,
am trying to walk without making a sound,
wondering ahead, whats on the ground,
when all at once my foot hits a mound.
wondering if, I hit a small tree trunk.
when i realize i'm being hit by a skunk.
