“I took a walk in the woods and left taller than the trees.” — Henry David Thoreau
Sometimes standing under trees
is the only way I can breathe
deeply enough to relax,
to calm myself into remembering
what I am — this steady pacing,
a day to day reckoning of the joys
and consequences of living,
must be balanced with the silences
needed to understand
that we are created beings.
This is no small understanding;
knowing that we are held
by our Creator, shaped,
tended, cared for by Perfection
and the Perfecter of love — the reason
we are able to love — is the most
humbling and satisfying truth
of this earthly existence and
a remembrance of what awaits us
in the glorious forever to come.
