Nature's hike

The wind howls past me 

Leaving everything behind 

I walk down the path 

Not knowing when I'll stop

Hearing the water flow

I can feel my stress going away

I look at nature's beauty

Searching for animals 

Walking the hike isn’t easy

My breathing gets heavier 

My legs start to give in

I can hear the heat of the sun 

Burning me inside out

Though I persist 

To see the end

Reaching the end 

Hearts pumping

Not wanting to leave

I take a deep breath

Fresh air going through my lungs

I feel free

    It’s that time of year again

    My leaves have fallen off

    And I’m ready for the new leaves 

    To arrive in spring

    Not caring bout the risk

    A planet filled with water

    And nature

    Not knowing

    Everything went downhill
