A time arrives, when I set out

And everything is greener

Than it was yesterday

It happens every year

And every year it surprises me,

I saw a copperhead,

A few feet on,

I saw another

Reminding me

..to watch my steps

More carefully

And I kept on…

I came upon two little turtles

Resting on a log

One fell left

The other right

I giggled

And I kept on

Clouds are so very lovely

Intense skies

I wonder what they see

Floating over the land

And over me

Keeping on…

I came to the water

To listen

And to hear

The breeze called to me

From the west

I smiled to myself

Knowing

And I kept on…
