This Journey I Walk

I strive to learn, to listen, to feel, to see

Hear the magic in the wind, feel the love of its embrace
The gentle murmur of the trees filling the forest
And hold in your heart the cool shade they provide
Behold the colors of rainbow in the beacon of flowers
Hear the chattering of the butterflies flitting about them in peace
Contrasted by the boisterous scolding squirrels in their ever running work

Hear the magical whispers of the earth mother drifting across this world
The heavenly sigh of the dusty dry ground as the first rain drops fall
Feel the joy in the clouds as they drift across creation
Laugh with the noisy cries of baby bird as its mother comes home
Take pleasure in the chance meeting of a new friend
Share the pain of the loosing of an old one

Let this world excite you, stir your soul with newfound awareness
The startling cascading rumble of windblown stones rattling on the roof
Heart stopping strike of lighting and thunder in an otherwise clear sky
The unintentional slip down a muddy bank into the cold clear waters below
Shudder in the rapture at the howling of the wolves on the mountaintop
Cry in the passion invoked by the sunset’s last gleams

An abundance of patience, for all things living or not
This is the only true secret, and with this I find success
Forever embracing the simple offers of life, and each instant of time
Holding sacred all around me, letting no moment be lost
For the journey is made only from the single steps combined
