Petrichor

Instead of inhaling 

doom and gloom, 

let’s take a walk

in the woods, 

play hide and seek 

among willow trees,

Feel the sun rejuvenate our soul, 

Become one with dirt and rain, 

bathe in the healing fluid from mother nature’s veins, 

petrichor,

just what the doctor ordered.

I like the positive healing energy in this poem, the determination to not succumb to a darkness, also the way the line lengths are so natural - they do not have to fit into a particular schematic or regime - which enhances that theme of being free in the natural world. Brilliant!

I inhale the countryside for 3 to 4 hours every single day, its been put there for us to enjoy. Enjoyed your poem and the musical accompaniment. A breath of fresh air in stormy times.

How fortunate that you recognize your blessing Keith. We often take the familiar for granted. I live only a few blocks from a wooded trail, but drive to a gym to walk on a treadmill. The irony isn’t lost on me. Awareness is the first step to change.

Vautaw,

How true. I am fortunate to live in a rural setting so this therapy is always available and it is a blessing indeed. A poem for thought in a hectic and fearful world.

Thank you Jordyn. I wonder how many would be healed if doctors prescribed an hour a day in nature!
