Peace of Mind

Lake Chabot

Here along Lake Chabot, 
My mind kicks off its boots, 
My soul drops its heavy pack.
Among ferns and horsetails, 
Where water gently ripples, 
my heart says ahhhh. 
Every bird song awakens me.
Every stray cloud a breath of mine.
Every cricket my own pulse.
Every leaf my own skin. 
Here the Star Thistles prompt
Knowing I will soon forget--
I am the universe and 
The universe is me.
