Balancing Act
Balancing Act
39 lines

I like to take a walk
In the world peace forest
Behind my house
In Incheon new town
Near the airport.

The trail winds around the town
Linking two ponds
One just a watering hole for traveling birds
The other a lotus flower pond.

Five miles round trip
Including a small mountain
At one end.

The forest is lined
With cherry trees
And other flowering trees.

And in the fall
Magnificent symphony
Of colors.

Before the gray of winter
Lays down the cold
And occasional snow.

There are animals along the way
Feral cats mostly
But I have seen a fox
And the elusive shy deer.

And heard but did not see
The oinking of a pig
Taking a bath.

And I saw a dead badger
And there are raccoon dogs
But I have not seen them.

In the end
Communing with nature
I find a sense of balance
So within and within out
Everything balancing out
In the end .
