This morning I walked for an hour and a half – the air was cool and fresh, and the sun shone beautifully through the shifting fog, right before my eyes. So beautiful.
The local area never fails to disappoint, with quiet residential streets leading to peaceful parks and bushland. I love it! It sets me up for a positive day and also inspires my writing. Lovely to get a walk in before the day begins, since they go so fast.
Today, as I walked along footpaths strewn with liquid amber leaves and grass that was wet with morning dew, I found that the rhythmic motion of my strides was so motivating – just to hear the crunching sound on each step.
The following is a simple poem that was the result of my walk this morning. Nothing too deep here, but just my experience. See what you think…
I open my eyes when a new day dawns,
Then the blinds are opened, not masking my yawns.
As I face the east and offer a good morning,
To a new day, a bright start, adorning.
The crisp morning air kisses my face,
I cannot help but feel enamoured in the days embrace.
The crunch of the leaves ‘neath my feet,
Brings the beauty of nature, whole and complete.
As I stride through the park before everyone stirs,
A warm bed, a sleep-in would be what some prefer.
The walk home familiar, the path still wet,
As I pass my favourite house, Somerset.
Happy that I have started on a positive note this morning,
I set my sails to north, all systems go and transforming.
Have a wonderful day!
