have you hugged a tree today?

not the best day to start

nordic walking from a

known departure point

heavy breathing feels as

if running out of air along

uphill

where usually the poet was

well underway

but not today

yet he will endure this

johann grünberger trail

thru’ the viennese woods

even if it feels too steep

for him today.

it’s like being in love

not always the mood there

for the partner

to make her feel wanted

definitely not in a long-term

marriage

besides now statistics show

four divorces in ten marriages

almost half have serious times

to go thru –

the poet hugs a huge birch tree

it must be this with a portent

woman

but as he hugs a smaller one

it befits him fine.

have you hugged a tree

today?
