Written while on a nature hike in Pakenham backwoods trail
Into the woods I go
It’s a place that is good for my soul
Along the path I roam
I really feel at home…
Alone, but not lonely
I feel at peace and enjoy the sounds
Of birds and wildlife all around
What’s this I see beside a tree?
A gnarly piece of bark, some lovely moss,
Some small pine cones, nature’s loss…
Is my gain!
As I gather and wander
I feel at peace and whole again.
