Morning walk in woods

I got up early, to go for a walk Empty handed, just a bag in hand With cool breeze caressing me soon reached the Woods View there was breathtaking In front was a carpet of orange, red and yellow leaves more were falling constantly Took off my slippers, put them in the bag Barefoot I walked on the leaves enjoying the feel listening to the rustling sound Chirping of bird's resounded the air I looked around to spot a flying beauty At that moment saw a butterfly It was black with intricate designs in yellow Some distance away was a snail walking slowly with shell in its back Dew drops on leaves and flowers glittered like diamonds Beak touching beak dove and sparrow were enjoying Parrot and gold flinch perched atop a tree filled me with exhilaration As I walked ahead, sound of flowing water made me stop I stood under a tree and watched colorful leaves floating on water Leaves fell on me like slow drizzle Suddenly a frog popped out of water only to jump back again Up in sky, sun a perfect red ball smiled at me It's reflection dancing on water - Oh! What a beauty! Capturing it all in my mind, I walked back There can be no artist as good as God Nature is God Thinking so, satiated and blissful, I walked back home Even now every time I think of the walk, I am filled with joy.
