I spent last Saturday exploring a forest. Avoiding countless Weedles and other assorted critters, I particularly enjoyed the soft hush of the breeze through the leaves. There was peace amongst those trees. Whilst navigating around the great green garden, I wrote the following haiku. I find it aptly describes a mindset that I would love to learn how to live all the time – as opposed to just when I find myself at one with nature.
I exist for now,
Just right here, where I should be,
Found below the trees.
