Nature can bring the ultimate treasure: contentment.
I welcome the opportunity to embrace nature during my wellness walks. During these moments, I am mindful of the sounds of God’s diverse animal kingdom and his kaleidoscopic forest. I encourage each of us to cherish the opportunities for solitude and reflection throughout our journey on the search for meaning and purpose. Allow your feet to follow the footprints that lead to the ultimate treasure: contentment.
I hope and pray this poem fosters reflection and hope.
A walk with nature
And forest cacophony
A muser’s delight
