A Sense of Camping

Late summer flowers:

hogweed standing tall above

candy striped bindweed.

A woodpecker calls,

buzzards mewing overhead,

rain on canopy.

Wafts of warm, dry grass;

moist vegetation in the

coolness of a wood.

The sweet stems of grass,

blackberries warm and mushy,

meaty wild mushrooms.

Happy memories

and joy at the thought that it

is all around me.
