Stress Is Mess…A Poem.

Welcome everyone to another poetic adventure.  I’m not quite sure what kind of adventure.  Some are good, some perhaps not so good.  But they are all me.  I think.  I wrote them anyway.

Stress Is Mess

As I walk along the trail,

All my stress begins to pale.

Stop, and see a tiny flower,

Sun or storm it lives with power.

Watching now the river flow,

Bringing life to make things grow.

Towering pines, such majesty,

Filling the upper canopy.

Then looking down I see below,

A soft thick mat of moss does grow.

There, sitting on a branch in view,

A little bird in brilliant blue.

The songs of others fills the air,

Singing so loud without a care.

So why do I hold on to stress?

Sing aloud and forget the mess!

    • Hi, thank you for stopping by and for following, it is much appreciated! I hope you will enjoy things here at Steve’s Country! Have a great day ahead!😃


      • Yes indeed! Probably get most of my ideas that way actually, and when I’m just outside sitting with my many animal friends it gets me thinking of different things to write about. By the way, I’m always up early, today at 3 am, about half an hour earlier than normal.😂🌞

      • Excellent. A lot of my ideas come through exercise. For the last three years I’ve woken up around 4am. Love the morning. I’m off my 5- hour energy drinks, so had to give my body time to reboot. Getting back to the early morning hours as well!

      • Hey, good to hear of another morning person! Most people I know hate early mornings! I have been a morning person all my life, was even born early! I love walking in the early morning most, but I will go walking any time of the day. I vary it because the wild life varies throughout the day and I like to see as much as I can.😃🌞

      • I’m back and feeling so much better 🥰 I dragged (almost literally) my 11-year-old along with me… and it was really good to just get some nature time together 🥰 We both came back feeling happier and more connected to the world 🥰
