By John Cannon

As I step
into the woods
itís like giving water
to a thirsty plant.
Thereís an immediate
intake of nourishment.
The sky, the sights, the sounds
soak into all my pores
filling all my cells
with a tonic of rejuvenation
that goes beyond refreshment
or sustenance of my body.
It is mother natureís
magic elixir,
brewed fresh
in every moment
so that even a small taste
gladdens my heart
and feeds my soul.
