What habits nourish your soul?

Poem out loud
20
A date with my hiking boots.

“In the presence of nature, a wild delight runs through the man, in spite of real sorrows.

~Ralph Waldo Emerson

               A Date  

I recognize the trick 
to ease my mind
soften the aches 
of my heart 
Build resilience 
in my bones
A date— 
with pine needles, 
rocks, mountainous
hardwood trees
their roots 
steady 
and secure 
and moss like an 
emerald carpet 
welcomes me 
A simple path 
to anchor my
soul...
Nature 
always delivers 
Where the truth 
is found.
