Living Life

…The next few Poems I’ll be posting were written while I was on my Journey.  There weren’t many, but what I wrote, I feel begins to show my change in perspective, as Life for me evolved over the course of some 1200 miles, walked alone, with only momentary (albeit Blessed) instances where I came in to contact with the “real world”, and escaped from my head…  Even once I’d come to the more populated portion(s) of CA, the time spent by myself typically outweighed the precious moments spent with the Blessed few.  So here you go, for your reading pleasure:


Living Life


Such beauty in LIfe

and it’s all around!

So easily turned,

that frown upside down!


Treasuring the moment,

remembering the past,

so precious, too few,

memory alone, makes them last!


So little time,

and so much to do,

slow down a bit,

and enjoy the view!


We’re offered so many,

those, that, precious rare moment,

don’t let it slip away,

you’ll find only discontent!


Among people, or trees,

Love every little bit of Life!

Such joys can be known,

refusing to Live in strife!
