Walk

I want to walk through the woods

The forest that is my world

My time

And the ones beyond that

Stretch my legs

Breathe deep

Run fast

 

I want to smell the growth and feel the moss under my feet

Hear the birds around me

Climb every tree

Leap with every lamb

Dance with every wolf

Some wolves twice

Cross rivers

Climb rocks

 

I want to know as dappled sunshine fades into night

As stars begin to twinkle over trees

As the gentle wind blows the sweet scent of life around me

As the woods go dark

That I have taken a good walk

And am ready to rest

Thinking about sitting in the car so much today,

You can do this. Probably.

Struck By The Soccer Fairy…Again

 

This morning was soccer try-outs.  As always the Soccer Fairy paid us her (ok, could be a “him” – not sure, never seen the accursed Soccer Fairy) traditional “Night Before Soccer Try-Outs” visit.  She (or he) hid half of the kids’ shin guards and a couple of cleats.
