An afternoon winter walk to begin just a short drive away
I see the trail name and am intrigued, I want to stay
The Kissing Bridge Path is the gateway for this adventure
But I am a little hesitant about the distance I can endure.
Hoping this winter chill won’t feel quite so cold
But I open up and am ready for nature’s story to be told
The path is wide like a boulevard in a grand city
Surrounding it are snow-covered fields so pretty.
On a beautiful winter day, the powerful sun shines bright
Every few steps now I notice the dreamy beautiful sight
I stop to stare at the chickadees that chirp so sweet
Tiny but plump and waiting for their next treat.
Along the path, there are tiny bridges so inviting
I stop at one and view a scene so inspiring
The creek flows with a slow trickle so light
Frozen snowflakes glow like diamonds so bright.
It is like the simple beauty now has magnified so clear
In a state of mindfulness, I am present; I am here
I am comforted and moved by this path of serenity
This season of snowy beauty, in these moments I feel free.
