A Bit Of Heaven.

Walking through the trees,
smelling the moist ground being disturbed by my feet,
I could not help but look up high above me
for the openings  above me,
that cast the suns rays,
bouncing off the earth beneath me.
Slowly feeling the warmth comfort me,
like a long lost blanket.
I was lost here in this quiet,
comfortable with my own thoughts,
grateful for the beauty surrounding me,
Something was beckoning me 
further and deeper into the forest,
Was I being adventurist or perhaps foolish,
I was living and breathing and feeling,
I was alive all my senses stimulated by my surroundings.
I could touch the branches as they swayed as I walked past,
I could feel the sweat dripping down my forhead
I could feel a slight breeze tenderly touching my arm,
I could taste a droplet of sweat as it graced my lip,
I could hear birds calling, perhaps in warning
of a stranger fast approaching.
I could see beauty all around me,
some hiding in the shadows.
I could smell the fresh air.
I leaned against a tree,
resting, watching, listening,
just being.
I was snapped to alertness
by the breaking of branches
not but ten feet away.
A deer stood gallantly facing me,
studying, challenging me or was it fear.
With one lunge she was gone,
both of us safe,
I waited a few moments
hoping she would come back,
It was not to be,
I turned and started back,
still enamored,
still grateful,
and I whispered 
softly to myself.
Thank you God
for this beautiful day!
