My Earthy Affair

I am having an affair.

The wind kisses my lips and runs its soothing breeze tenderly through my hair releasing me from restless feelings of anxiety.

Sometimes when the wind howls I am aroused by it's mighty power and offer it my respect. I have learned to cherish the wind's gentleness and fear its strength.

I have hugged a tree so enormous that my fingertips could not touch each other.

My cheeks have rubbed against the rough bark that protects it.

I have inhaled the exhilerating perfume of a pine tree that has refreshed the spirit within me.

Warmth from the sun embraces me, soothes my aching muscles and sends beams of joy bouncing into my emotions.

Light from the sun chases away the scary things that lurk in the corners of my reality and imagination.

Music is played for me in waves of water whispering seductive invitations to the waiting shores.

I've seen ruffed grouse strutting and drumming on their stages of dense brush to hens in waiting.

The evening sky has given me treasures of infinite diamonds and a moon longing for my eyes' embrace.

I have received the gifts of splendid paintings created by the Artist of Artists...Behold, they are very good!

I have feasted at tables with delight on foods prepared from fertile soil.

I am satisfied with the promise that the same earth will become a blanket of cover for me when my affair with nature comes to an end...
