How to Walk with Nature

Begin with a shoulder shake
3 breathes, and linger with the word nature

Walk and find a place 
Where you safely stand

With quiet unfolding
with realization of what is here, there
with the willingness to integrate
with appreciation of the diversity
with the seasons, the weather
with integrity to commitment made
with vitality to self-concept
with stick-to-it-ness
with awareness 
with the presence of earth, air, water, and fire

When you decide to move
Close with a stretch, a yawn
And wiggle your toes,
Return with thanks for this existence

Alternatively, from the comfort of a chair, imagine your Walk with Nature to a place like this:
