A Healthy April Walk

Today, Delycia and I took a healthy walk in the beautiful April sunshine, up and down the road into the Peace Sanctuary on River Road. We always enjoy that walk – the deep, quiet woods, the pumping of our hearts as we climb the hill three times, the outdoor air and sunshine. When we returned home, I felt fresh enough to write this poem:

GOOD FEELINGS

(04/07/19

He felt the wind holding his right hand,

and the helpful sunshine holding his left.

He looked with love at swaying tree limbs

and he felt them looking with their light hearts

at him. He seemed to hear a hymn

inside himself, and also the silence

of mountain ranges. His little life rolled

along like a song that simply can’t end.  

He felt the weightlessness of all his days

draped across his shoulders like light.
