Nature's playground

As I approach the playground
I am both in awe
And afraid.
Anxiety ripples through me from its size.
I am amazed by its beauty.
The sun and shadow
Play peek a boo
Among the dips and waves of land.
The fog comes in
Without warning
To play.
Adventure (or danger) lurks
Around every curve.
Ice on every bridge.
I stay awhile...
Not sure of the way things will go
On the playground.
White knuckled
Until I have safely returned
To the plains
Of my home.
