Hiking the Russian Gulch State Park

Treading on the green grass
Glancing at the green trees stretching
far beyond my eyesight
I listened to a bird flapping
its wings against my consciousness
in the beautiful silence of the rainforest

Words tumbling in my mind
I gazed at a butterfly
as it fluttered its marvelous dances in the air
while I heard the creek
babble a soothing song

Up and up we hiked
thru the muddy trail
on the wooden bridge
under the fallen bough

Breathing in
and breathing out
we swallowed the purity,
the youthful and rich energy
of the redwood forest
as the sun was breaching thru the dense forest
washing away all life’s worries

And we felt alive

Memories of the precious moments
