Pulse quickens, goose bumps raise
Wind rushes by –
Light through the canopy, iridescent plays
Patterns on the muddied earth.
Sweat rains down, sins wash away
Sun blazes on –
Hours are but minutes, seconds are a day
Thoughts crest and break upon the trail.
Holy grass underfoot, engulfing trees,
Seclusion in your depths –
My soul, renewed! Feel the breeze,
Reborn again to the world, ahead.
