Visiting the Country

Visiting the Country

my heart still remembers
the weekend I took away
a time to rest
a time to slow my body down

hard to sit still
 allowing myself
the luxury of
slowing down the rhythm

visiting the country
hearing the sounds of nature
watching a beautiful full moon
hearing the stillness

taking a ride in the car
seeing beautiful old barns
corn fields and tobacco growing

planting my feet
where my grandmother 
once lived and farmed
feeling overwhelmed

a visit to the country
is a time to just let go
appreciate all that is around me
forgetting busy stuff for just a short while

nature all around
simplicity in living

my visit to the country
