The world is magical

A walk down the street
Through the bushes
Across the creek
Down and around the curve of the path
Past the construction site
A stop in a cave
Respite from the sun
A place to rest

On down the hill
Spring flowers all around
Up to a stunning vista
Of graffiti and bullet holes

Walk down and back across
Rock to rock, rock to rock
Find a fiberglass cylinder
Stop to read a story
Sun streaming down on the rocks
Green leaves making green shadows on the walls

A living tree across the water
Climb, and climb, and climb
So high!
Look through the leaves
Sighs and smiles

Climb back down, and back  up a hill
Beautiful fields
What's at the top of that hill?
And that one?
Get to the top and see out to the vast beyond
Blue ocean with sunlight bright on the surface
Turn around and see dark storm clouds against the brightly lit meadows

Walk down
Huge gorge dug away by man
Sit on the edge
Swimming feeling, discomfort
Adrenaline from looking from heights
Throw rocks over
Sailing, sailing, sailing through the air, then
Nervous energy
Thoughts of falling over
Back away from the edge
Go away from the edge

Look the other direction
Turn around and around and around
Rainbow right
Rainbow left
Beautiful clouds
Ocean to the back

Rainbow brightens
It starts to rain

I am filled
Such beauty
I overflow with emotion
First tears, lots of tears
So, so beautiful
Then running and sighs
Loud sighs of happiness

Sun is setting
Clouds taking color
Rainbow reappearing
Looking at my love
Happiness in the eyes

Walk home
Hand in hand

The world is magical
