From a challenging yet refreshing hike
Never seem to drink enough water.
I am too distracted by beauty that catches my eyes.
I get tickled by these things.
Even the snakes. They terrify my but I cannot stop looking and wondering.
Bumble bees and wasps.
Spiders and caterpillars.
Hawks and vultures.
The different trees and different leaves.
The greens and the blues, the grays and the browns.
And the way is rocky so I have to stop quite often and gaze otherwise
I might trip and fall a very long way.
Then I stay up too late watching the
Fireflies dance in the forest.
They never cease to make me giggle with delight.
They mesmerize me.
My eyes trying to focus between the dark
And the light of their
I cannot even guess where they may light up
So I try not to blink leaving my eyes to soften
Without looking at one point.
