This Way

Fern Canyon, Prairie Creek Redwoods State Park

You walk slowly balancing your weight
The soft water-logged ground
Sometimes gives way beneath your feet

You step up
A river smoothed log
Solid in place (well at least until the next major storm makes it release)

You crouch down
Without thinking
You must run your hands along its water sanded skin

Learning and feeling
What it means to dig in
To whither to let everything wash over you

Slowly losing layers
Your strength
Your truth you continue

To the stretched tips of the fallen log
Soon looking beyond
Soft golden glimmers of light

Softly singing wildly dancing reminding you
It’s right
Your smile returns

This way
Walk seek
Dream conceive

Right now your direction

What you know
Be Free

**This post is part of Monochrome Madness, week 30. Leanne Cole and Laura Macky host this incredible collection of monochrome images each week. I appreciate their openness towards anyone who wants to participate. So, if monochrome images fascinate you as they do me, send in an entry too. You can find the direct link to the other images in this collection HERE. (If the link isn’t live yet, it hasn’t been posted, please be patient)


    1. Awe, thanks Robyn 🙂 it was incredibly soft, I couldn’t stop touching it! My kids were also very intrigued by this log too. And the canyon, well that is for another post. Thank you for reading and “being there”.

Please take a moment, comments encouraged.
