Keep it Real

My wish for you,

 an outdoor life.

Beyond the rush

And daily strife.

To watch a cloud,

Pet a horse,

Learning ’bout

A natural course.

Blowing seeds

Upon the wind.

Watching them

take life again.

Naming birds

and falling leaves.

Rowing boats

and climbing trees.

Treating water

like it’s gold.

Embracing life

beyond the fold.

Take a deep breath

every morn.

Ever glad that

you were born.

A foolish one

in life ignores.

How products get

to shelves at stores.

There’s more to life

beyond a book.

Get outdoors

and take a look.

Senses heightened,

A world so wide.

Let Mother Nature

be your guide.

My hope is for

a better feel.

The outdoor life

will keep you real.

    I agree, Susan! I definitely am an outdoors kinda guy, and think it is the BEST place to be. BUT! “There’s more to life beyond a book”?? I think you’ve gone too far! Books are my second favorite thing, and and and… you can read outside!

      Yes, it was the right rhyme but made me cringe too…internet is a difficult word to end with! Ha!
