Traveler On the Backroads

57m  ·



And you will hear

the breeze brushing

softly through the trees

birds singing


the frost embracing

the trees the plants

in a protective silence


And in this silence,

your heart beating

your soul awakening

God whispering


I made this for You 💓


~ poem “Soul Awakening” by Michael Traveler, author/poet



author’s Note:

THIS MORNING, I TOOK A WALK down by the river in the woods that hugs its banks. The remains of a light snow gently covered the branches of the trees, the fence posts, everything, and as I walked I could hear the crunch of the snow beneath my boots. There was a slight chill in the air and just a whisper of a breeze. Birds were singing up above in the trees and as if in harmony the few leaves still hanging rustled just for me.


IT WAS HERE IN THE SILENCE that I could almost hear my heart beat, could feel it leap in joy at all the beauty surrounding me, as if God had personally come down to take me in His arms and embrace me. It’s in these quiet moments that I can feel the magic, the wonder, the spirit of the Creator and can get in touch with my soul.


IT’S MOMENTS LIKE THESE I have come to treasure and tuck away in my heart. I like to think of it as Food for the Soul. 💓

I am interested in writing short stories for my pleasure and my family's but although I have published four family books I will not go down that path again but still want what I write out there so I will see how this goes
