a walking haibun

“Home is everything you can walk to.”  ― Jerry Spinelli, Stargirl

To hike a mountain wearing backpack is divine; climb to cool heights with marmots, and drink in far vistas. To stroll barefoot along the sandy beach is mesmerizing; play catch-me-if-you-can with foamy waves, and chase seagulls. To meander with walking stick on fern trail through piny forest is refreshing; listen for bears, and follow a stony stream. To exercise with dog on rural mile is simple enjoyment; be led over gently rolling hill, push into prairie wind, and gaze at the wide expanse of sky.

    This really sums up the walk of all walks and so precisely and poetically.

    I love the midwest–and we owe so much to those farmers. Nice contrasts in this.

    mmm, this was a pleasure. Brimming with the joys of freedom– the possibility of an open sky

    All the different walks…each so very different and so full of enjoyment. I like the photo with the road between the fields. I can well imagine a walk along that – with self, others, a dog. And the endless sky above the prairie. What glory! I enjoyed this so very much.
