It is a warm summer night
The sun has long closed its eyes
Letting the moon battle
The darkness of the night

I take a walk
Down the beautiful creek
Listening to the increasing sound
Of the rushing water
As I get closer and closer

I let the wind caress my face
And take away my daily burden
I let my feet guide me
Through the narrow path
Gently kissing the ground
With each step I take

I finally come to a stop
I sit on a rock
Take off my shoes
look at my feet
and slowly dip them in the water

I let the air glide through my nostrils
Down into my insatiable lungs
The air fills me with life
And we become one

I breathe in
I breathe out
I am in the moment
I am alive
