Ten Miles before Tea

Ten Miles before Tea

I hiked,
Walked,
Wandered,
And strolled.

I saw,
Peeked,
Stared,
And studied.

I spoke
To the clouds,
The trees,
Shrubs,
And the grasses.

I sang
To the four leggeds,
The winged,
The Finned,
And the slitherers,

My plan was to hike ten miles before tea
And here it is evening, and I’ve gone about three.

  1. What a delightful journey, to stop and really see, and hear, and be – thanks for sharing your natural high!

  2. It was a great three miles though, wasn’t it?

  3. Three miles can be quite FAR ENOUGH, AND TO THINK OF THE POEM IS TO REACH FAR. FRAN

  4. Take your tea to-go! 🙂

  5. Thank you all for your comments. Walking, seeing, and listening is the only way to go.
