      Walking Neenah

      Posted on by Future Neenah

      This week’s ‘Walking Neenah’ takes the shape of a poem:

      carpenter preserve

      The Tranquil Night

      Dark as the midnight Raven

      Flicks of light rushing past

      Wash of the night, my expression graven

      My sullen gaze, unsurpassed


      Muck of the surrounding terrain

      Natural, Universal, Ordinary

      The aroma of the earth’s dark rich veins

      Familiar Atmosphere, January

      Cold, Wet, Fresh

      Grey shirt stuck to my chest

      Slick grass, Tree flesh

      Soaked foot to crest

      I inhale, filling my lungs with the pure air of the night

      Facing to the sky

      Eyes open wide

      The stars brilliance beautify

      A mystical sky’s view supplied

      Fresh cold air

      The aroma of nothingness

      This unfamiliar enticing smell ensares

      My skin, becoming numb

      The sky’s cool cry

      Streaming down my face

      Senses are magnified

      Today’s worries erase

      I exhale, the day’s worries are pushed out and away

      Moonlight rays and raindrops

      Wet from ground to tree tops

      Nature’s hold and loving face

      Neenah’s Carpenter Nature Reserve

      My happy place
