In the Forest

Somewhere in the forest

the soft brown carpet of leaves

that send up a sweet fragrance

also quiets your footsteps

as you walk

There is a mist that keeps you

from seeing far

but it also

hugs you

in a chill that you welcome

on a summer afternoon

radiating waves of heat

like an uncontrollable


There are curious eyes


watching in the forest

that you can feel

but can’t quite see

and you have a sense that

wherever you walk

on the forest path

or off

the path

you are not


You are not alone.
