Walking and talking (poetry in nature)

Walking and talking

enjoying the path,

enjoying the cool fall air,

the leaves filtering daylight

colors and light changing with each step.

Stopping by the creek

listening to the water

listening to your description

of whirling water followed by calm

a metaphor for life

But mostly enjoying the company

Taking the scenic path

Two years ago I moved from Chicago which is well known for beautiful cityscapes to the Rocky Mountains which is equally well known for its breathtaking landscapes.

Today, as I reflect upon my daughter’s wedding yesterday, the second daughter to be married this year, and my own birthday, I’m definitely thinking about what path I have chosen.

Do we choose our path, or does it choose us?
