Fly

Cantering

Through crisp air

Above

Blue beckons

Clouds dancing

Freedom gasps deeply

Breath held

Thoughts of magic

Soaring

Racing

Enchantment revealed

Ground and sky married

Artistry erupts

And shines

And grows

Ever faster swimming upward

Tethers loosed

Unrestrained in beauty

Onward

Always onward

Friend Mine…Gina’s Favorites

Friend Mine…Gina’s Favorites
by Gina Valley

I’m spending the weekend with my family.  I’m guessing we’re not the only ones trying to squeeze a little bit of extra summer into these waning weeks.

One of my favorite Sunday posts is my Friend Mine post, and knew it would be a great Gina’s Favorites post.  You can read my Friend Mine post below in its entirety,

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
