Walking Alone In The Dark
She is no longer in that smoky room filled with noise all around
She is now walking alone in the silence breathing fresh air
It was raining just before she put her shoes on but now it stopped
It was getting colder and darker but she didn't mind
Walking alone in the dark was something she was used to
Walking meant she could let thoughts run through her head
The wind is blowing in her direction and she feels that
The wind this evening is whispering around her and to her
The surroundings have lost their colors to the darkness
The surroundings are grey shades of the sky and the trees
The colors of summer is slowly disappearing before her eyes
The colors make her feel alive and well but now she feels empty
Is she going to feel like this the whole fall because of the lost colors?
Is she going to be able to enjoy her walks during the cold winter?
Right after having these thoughts the wind starts blowing very hard
Right after this, she can see horses running and she also smells them
She can now feel raindrops start falling on her skin in the face
She knows that nature has read her mind and given her an answer
There are so many things to enjoy in nature when seasons are changing
There is a comfort in knowing that the summer will be here again
Sometimes we need to spend time in a smoky room before we see the beauty of nature
Sometimes we need to spend time in nature before we enter that smoky room again
She is taking her shoes off
She is tired but happy
She is closing the window
She is going to bed
