Through the Forest


Photobucket
   the day is warm not a cloud in the sky my dog follows me closely
we take to the trail to our favorite spot a ledge over looking the valley
i had packed a lunch for us water and drink it would only take an hour
walking through the forest was a solitude of peace

we reached the ledge took a breath of the fresh mountain air and sighed
this was Gods country we watched the eagle soar mountain goats climb
the river below rushed with rapids and a roar the colors breath taking
walking through the forest was a solitude of peace

lunch was spent quietly taking in all the sights and sounds the tranquility felt
there was no rush here no demands upon my time no deadlines to make
we sat in silence watching all the sights tippy was soon asleep as i relaxed
walking through the forest was a solitude of peace

i could see a bear on the other side of the river looking for a place to fish
in the distance crouching low i spied a cougar ready to pounce on a rabbit
sitting quietly not making a sound or move i watched the wildlife around
walking through the forest was a solitude of peace

i had thought of bringing a camera then decided against that would be intrusive
there was a sense of one with nature a camera would have defeated that feeling
being a part of this beauty was more than a dream it was reality for tippy and me
walking through the forest was a solitude of peace
