“Learn to light a candle in the darkest moments of someone’s life. Be the light that helps others see; it is what gives life its deepest significance.” – Roy T. Bennet

Nature Baby

I gave birth to nature baby.

He jabbers as we run outside, taking in the sights and sounds of the trees that we pass.

Sometimes he falls asleep from the rhythm and I can hear him snoring lightly.

I’m sure he dreams of sunshine and birds, because he is always in the best of moods in the outdoors.

When he is big and grown, I hope he’ll be running next to me as we tackle the big miles. His dad will be on his bike, keeping our pace steady, as we jump rocks and dodge branches in the forest. 

For now, though, he is a nature baby.



When we wait outside

We get drenched by little misty clouds

And crouch in spheres to hide


We are facing trunks

The trees that own them bending over

And joining in our huddles


It rains in sheets

When they wrap you up in your bed

We dare the escapees


They run too fast

The wet sinks to the frozen bones

We doubt they will ever last


Sometimes “Enough!”

Is all you can really say to the sky

And that is all
