Walk with Me

Here...take my hand. Come walk with me.
Let’s stroll along this wooded path.
Let’s fondle the leaves, let’s smell the ferns.

Your arm feels good around my waist.
Let’s get in step or we’ll bump our hips.
Let’s laugh, let’s giggle.

I love it when you point things out to me.
Let’s watch the squirrel.
Let’s see the rabbit.

Along the way we’ll stop to have a tender moment.
Let’s share a hug.
Let’s steal a kiss.

Over there...see that log?
Let’s take a seat.
Let’s have a rest.

Do you feel the shade?
Let’s let it cool our brow.
Let’s take it as our refreshment.

Come, sit close to me.
Let’s stay connected.
Let’s absorb each other.

Close your eyes, be still and quiet.
Let’s hear the birds.
Let’s listen to the limbs while they sway.

Allow your mind to drift away.
Let’s find a dream.
Let’s share some pleasure.

Turn to me, I’ll touch you there.
Let’s show our love.
Let’s take each other.

Here...take my hand. Come walk with me.

What is it about poetry that soothes the soul?

I needed my soul soothed today. If this were food, I'd say that this poem "hit the spot." Thank you!
