For a brief time the wind and rain ceased
Instead off returning home after a lovely meal out
My friend and I chose to take a walk in Lithia Park.
The crisp, cold air, wet maple leaves everywhere
The moon playing hide and seek amongst the clouds
Made the evening misty and magical.
We walked in silence, grateful for this reprieve
Reminded storms do pass by and we can be grateful
Our legs still allow us to walk this precious Earth
Absorbing her Beauty, her quiet wisdom
That needs no party atmosphere to be at home
At peace with the changing seasons.
