A Quail Sings

I find it essential as an empath to have a place of solitude to decompress and regenerate from the city. That place for me is Joshua Tree. I have taken regular trips there for over 20 years.

In my most recent visit, I found myself letting go so deeply that an inner poet started to arise from within. I haven't written poetry since High School. It felt fun, light and easy as I explored this new mode of expression. The poems streaming forth from my Spirit were an expression of my visceral experiences. The following is one of my favorites.

A Quail Sings

A quail sings

the wind blows

whispering softly

to me

The sun shining

warm skin

feeling loved by the sky

Coyotes howling in the distance

a pack

a family together

and again

a quail sings

the wind blows

and I cry
