Invitation

Trail at Sahli Nature Park

The trail is russet with oaks.
It surprises me; I had expected
a leafless canopy, drab as the day.
But it glows and beckons me
to wander its length, a hint
of promise in its call. I walk,
wrapped in singing amber,
inhaling the fragrance, my spirit
floating on wonder, whispering
thanks.
