A charming afternoon., a day of exploring after it became too hot to fish anymore. I walked up a trail watching for birds and butterflies. A variety of blooms greeted me and told me to stay for a bit, perhaps to find a hidden treasure. I watched all around and listened to the breeze kissing me. It carried an ever lasting happiness for those who believe in the spirit of the land. This has been traveling on the winds of this land for hundreds of years to share and renew happiness with all, out on the prairie. My thoughts blended with others carried away on a gentle prairie breeze.
Even the smallest of flowers charmed me, calling out for me to enjoy their beauty.
