TRAIL MIX
LET”S TAKE A WALK

You are having
‘One of Those Days’
Here
Take a walk with me

I know
we are far apart
It doesn’t matter
Close your eyes
Let’s go

Notice all along the path
the wild radishes reach out to us
white, purple, yellow
They bunch along the trail
And there, a sticky monkey flower
orange
The rattlesnake grass
hisses harmlessly in the breeze

Inhale
Look at the distant mountain
The Sleeping Lady takes her nap
The birds twitter not to worry
The egret stands stately on one leg
forever in the marsh

A little lizard
darts out to say “Hello”
then disappears

Now I wrap you in this hug
to take home with you
to remember all day long
you are loved
