Walking in the Woods

by zanya

On my early morning work commute, I divert, to take a walk in the woods.
It's mid April, but a chill breeze vigorously stirs the newly budded trees.
As I lace up my boots, a pungent, earthy scent fills my nostrils.
Soon I am moving at a brisk, rhythmic pace.
A serenade of fledglings In the hedgerows accompanies my steps.
Sweet scent of yellow gorse wafts on the breeze. I reach out and touch its prickly stems.

All too soon I must wend my weary way to my windowless office.
