Walking Meditation ...

The field of dandelions from last week...
all turned to seed.
I kept my eye out for the Zebra Swallowtail ...
but found a lovely Mourning Cloak instead ...
soaking up the warmth of the afternoon sun.
fed the squirrels ...
and the chipmunks ...
who both enjoyed the peanuts :-)

With beauty before me
may I walk
With beauty behind me
may I walk
With beauty above me
may I walk
with beauty below me
may I walk
With beauty all around me
may I walk
Wandering on the trail of beauty
may I walk
