This Walk

Hawk flies over

Squirrel scurries quickly down the road

Raven circles to the clouds

The sun shines lightly

Warmth is gentle

Quickly to fade

Leaves have blown away

Puffy clouds drift overhead

Birds scatter all around

The crunch of gravel echoes

Horses calm in the paddock

The world is still here

There is gentle breeze

Coming and going

Magpies and Jays play

There are no cars

No power tools

No noise of any other

One footstep and then another

I walk

I stop

Smell, breathe and look

All life should be so simple

This walk this day

Eases pain away

  1. i love your poem. it seems honest, especially this part:

    One footstep and then another

    I walk

    I stop

    Smell, breathe and look

    All life should be so simple

    This walk this day

    Eases pain away
