Afternoon walk with dog in our Adirondack woods

Dappled sun through bright new leaves
Wild scents only dog perceives
Shrubs in bloom & flies like bees
Fallow fields sway in the breeze
Grass & ferns brush 'gainst my knees
While pollen clouds disperse from trees.

Cool & crisp, the mountain air
Dries my sweat & ruffles hair
We walk this land without a care
My dog could lead me anywhere
He drinks from puddles here & there
A grouse takes flight - a startled scare.

I'd hate to leave this mountain home
It's my desire when I roam
I long to be here when away
& dream of days just like today.
