i took a walk

in the humid forest

just after a little rain

i could still hear

the latest raindrops

slide from

the leaves to the ground

the squirrel

coming out of their hiding

the birds taking flight

after having been restrained

to the ground

fo a little while by the rain

and there

in the middle of the forest

i stopped

closed my eyes

breathed slowly in and out

talked with 

the forest spirits


i opened my eyes

and walked back home

with a smile

on my face
