"You are braver than you believe, stronger than you seem, and smarter than you think." — Christopher Robin, Winnie the Pooh.

Fall leaves,

Fall to the ground,

As they spin round and, round,

I see reds, greens, browns, oranges, and yellows,

And I unzip my coat to reveal my camera,

Warm to the touch.

I start to scale up the maple tree,

I put a branch under my arm like a crutch,

But my camera is what I clutch,

As I look towards the other trees,

I see the perfect ray of sunlight,

As I hear the clicking of the shutter,

I look down, and my heart shutters.

I never look down,

But the ground almost comes up to greet me.

I’m not falling,

Just gazing down at the glorious leaves.

Even if I might,

I must never let go,

Or I’ll fall,

I climb down.

And I walk back towards home.

When I am stressed I like to take a walk in the woods to calm down, and I think walking off your problems is an amazing thing to do. (I also bring my camera with because you do not know what you will find:)
