  • Walking in the woods to some leaves great inspirations to write
    While others it leaves no impression at all
    Still others find it challenging, perhaps a great adventure.

    What fun walking in the woods!
    Admire the shades of green
    Lemon lime
    Viridian green
    Green bronze
    More sneezing
    Runny nose
    You did bring tissue?
    Yes, we’re having fun.
    Still on the beaten path
    Beautiful trees
    Tall sturdy reaching to the sky
    Small seedlings so delicate
    Flying swarms of bugs
    Close your mouth, spit.
    Swatting mosquitoes
    You did spray on repellent?
    Yes, we’re having fun.
    Babbling brook
    Trickles as it rolls over rocks
    Deeper pools
    Crystal clear, pristine
    Small fish, blue gill
    Did you see that snake?
    You did see it?
    Copperhead? Water moccasin?
    You say it’s a garden snake
    Yes, we’re having fun.

    Crossing the brook
    Balance atop the rocks,
    Foot slips in water
    One soaked shoe
    Squishing with every step
    Clothes still dry?
    Yes, we’re having fun.

    Blazing new trails
    Off the beaten path
    Downhill all the way
    Redbuds, dogwoods
    Colorful ground cover
    Different shaped leaves
    Slope steepens
    Branches snapping back
    Marks your arms and legs
    Welts and scratches
    Step to the right
    Spider web in the face
    Is it on me? Is it in my hair?
    Look! Hurry!
    You did get it? For sure?
    Yes, we’re having fun.

    What fun is it to walk in the woods?
    Let me count the ways
    Falling in poison ivy
    Resting on a fallen tree
    Sit, drink your water, and eat your apple
    Did you get chiggers or ticks?
    Or both?
    Yes, we’re having fun.
    Laughing all the way home!
    It really is great fun
    Walking in the woods.
