December walk

it’s the middle of December
but yesterday was a November

and as I walked
under oak trees

i became aware
of yellows, browns,
and balmy gusts

much too warm for freezing

a melody ran through my head
and instead of Christmas carols
i hummed an old John Denver tune

You know the one…

“you fill up my senses…
like a night in the forest
like the mountains in springtime
like a walk in the rain……..”

somewhere along the trail

i was filled
