Moment in Time 3.14.2022

Another visit to Watson Lake. No time constraints today so I sat, wrote, played ukulele, and then decided to hike a little. Stellar day. Relaxing for the mind and body.

Today I sat 

Alone and Still

On a bench

Overlooking a green water lake

Rimmed by boulders

And trails.

Today I sat 

Alone and still

And listened

People I couldn't see, 

ducks swimming and flying 

In the water below me

birds singing above and around.

Today I sat

Alone and still

As I soaked in the warmth of the sun

The stillness of the air

Watching ducks

Watching kayaks on the water

Admiring the bright blue sky.

Just watching the rippling water

Flowing towards me

Sparkling bubbles.

Reflections of rocks 

Shimmer in the water 

Near the opposite bank.

Today is I sat

Alone and still 

On a bench

Reveling in the scene before me

Green swimming water

Giant unmoving boulders.

This is what I needed today.

This is what I need.

This is what makes life worth living.

This is life.
