Puente Poetry: Forest Bathing

a blue and white whippet in winter jacket sniffing a fallen branch in the forest

the scent of earth and pine
walk with us on the trail
the flutter of a raven’s wings
in the trees above us sings

~ the song of an inner moon ~

that soothes the inner tide
and merges with outside
in breaths of peace, deep peace
and all the love we carry

It’s lovely to be walking among the soothing smells of pine trees again and enjoy the bliss of forest bathing.
