    In my last poem I meant to quote the poem today is joy undimmed, complete. Stupid auto-correct; unsigned instead of undimmed. (Report) Reply

    I know I write this often but sometimes I just don't understand why some well-written poems score so low. This poem sums up so many experiences I've had hiking through nature. When my friend and I walk through nature, out in some beautiful scenic area, it truly is a respite from worry and woe. Forget about the pressures currently occurring in your life, forget your worries about things future and past. Today is joy unsigned complete. This sort of a poem about mindfulness and being fully engaged in the present moment. (Report) Reply
