Walking

walk slowly, listen
to the birds and watch the clouds -
the best way to go.

Well said! It's the small things that matter. Always good to get a reminder for us to pay attention.

...And notice the flowers, trees, animals etc! Lovely, had me mentally out strolling on a spring day!

I love how your comments display as "birds singing." How did you set that up? Very clever.

This haiku is lovely!

Sorry for the duplicate comment. I hit the button too fast and ended up with an anonymous post.

Listening to the birds and watching the clouds is mandatory on a walk. Gives me hope!

this is my patch said...

My best therapy is to stop and listen to nature. Works every time. x

Yes ... and yes again! "The best way to go." Beautiful last line.

Great haiku - but for some reason my mind wants to flip the middle phrase round to 'listen to the clouds and watch the birds'!
