Patterns of Things

Often, when I go walking, I am wandering inside my head. I am fretting, not really seeing what is in front of me. But other times, I try to empty my mind and notice every little thing. How patterns in nature repeat themselves. How colors change subtly, day by day. Shapes and colors and textures dazzle me. When I let them, the gorgeous, varying patterns of the woods and pond fill me with happiness and hope.
