An early morning walk
A fine frost sparkles all around
The air is crisp and fresh, I inhale deep lung fulls,
refreshing myself from the inside out.
The sky is slowly brightening,
cotton wool waves of pink and purple
lap at the roof tops.
As I cross the road I am startled by a
rustling in the bushes, panic turns to wonder
As a squirrel appears and looks around.
We regard each other, the squirrel and I
both in awe of the brilliant morning sky.
As I walk the cold starts to warm my bones.
my nose glows red and my ears burn
but I feel better.
When I’m walking on through this peaceful town
I feel thankful, glad that I can enjoy
the beauty and grace of this place.
