Walk with me on a sunny January day in the Rocky Mountains.
Contemplate a place to meditate next to the creek. Think of spring when iris blooms over the grave on the slope. Think of summer when you sway in the hammock strung between the trees.
Spy on unwary quail that live beneath snow and branches.
Discover a chickadee’s pantry where it has stashed seeds from your feeder.
Let it show you how it cracks a black sunflower seed open for lunch.
Wonder if it was a fox or cat that left its tracks along the creek, up the hill,
beneath the pine, across the field, over the show covered chair, under the Elderberry brush,
across the puddle (those are my show shoe tracks next to the animal trail), between strands of barbed wire,
into the forest.
Breathe deeply along the creek.
Feel like you are being watched.
Take your time knowing a pair of Red Breasted Nut Hatches.
Catch a bubble and float away.
