Therapy

As I walk in the woods, 
the worries
melt 
   off 
     my 
         shoulders.
My jaw softens.
My hands
unclench,
unfurl
like the wings 
of the wild geese
that beat the wind.

You show us how to collect the poems from the wings of the wild geese beating the wind ... not satisfied with the geese only ...the inevitable 'wild' reinforces the truth ... what a beauty ...

Thank you, Jan. It was so wonderful to be able to hike yesterday, after a week of stress.

Indeedy, Agnes, I regularly take a route to town that takes me half an hour longer, just to get away from traffic, and it improves my mood immeasurably. I shall accompany you in my mind. Viv x

Yes Agnes, nature has a way of saying to us: There is more to life as long as we listen to ourselves.

A walk in the woods is the best type of therapy. Looking forward to long spring walks when the woods really come alive again.
