The Path of least Resistance

Leaves yield to the breeze

A solitary white-faced heron

Wades in the shallow pools

Keen for opportunity

Sea gulls hang about

For left over fish ‘n’chips

A harrier hawk

Effortlessly sailing currents of air

The stream carrying life

Chattering water


Glides over and around rocks

Towards it’s destination.

Choice makes our human lives complex.

Shall I go this way or that?

Nature doesn’t have such dilemmas

It simply exists

No striving

No hurrying

No stress

I am part of nature

What is my path of least resistance?
