I Walk the Path

I walk the path in pure delight
immersed in beauty all around me
breeze the breath of the universe
I am at peace, enthralled, enchanted

Immersed in beauty all around me
a quilt of colors, textures, patterns
I am at peace, enthralled, enchanted
all my senses finely tuned

A quilt of colors, textures, patterns
what artist created this
all my senses finely tuned
I drink the beauty in

What artist created this
one with imagination like no other
I drink the beauty in
resolve to never leave

"How will you live when the snow comes"
breeze the breath of the universe
in my mind I will not leave
I walk the path in pure delight

  11. You did such a great job of this Villanelle. And it just flows without seeming artificially constructed (which is one of my problems when I try to use forms). Beautiful, as usual, friend.
