NaPoWriMo Day 19 – How To Poem

I'm somewhat stumped by some of the free prompts. Who am I to complain?
I am trying to crank out 30 poems, but it isn't easy.


Forest Bathing


The warmth of the sun draws me
Chores demand my time
The call of the cat compels me
How to find time for a rhyme?

The song of the birds they laud me
Taunting me into the forest
Inhaling the aroma of springtime
Hailed by amphibian chorus

Great pleasure to take a 6 a.m. walk in the forest. Blue jays, robins, and other song birds.

I've been watching these chickadees for a few weeks. Suddenly, they are gone. I measured, the hole is 8" deep.

They say it is health to go Forest bathing!

Smell and sound of forests at this time of year are at their peak.
