Pathways

Pathway

An unknown path calls for me,

pulling me towards

the union

of earth and spirit.

The sigh from nature

draws attention

to the trees,

the ground,

to primitive beginnings.

I want

to remain here

as will and courage

break out from silence

soaring to the Heavens.

I want to sit and lay

among this hearth

where moth and air plants reside

alongside ferns and trees.

I want to stare through God’s canopy

and abide by the simple rules:

The rhythm of leaves shuffling,

falling and disappearing;

the cool wind softly kissing the trees;

the water lovingly teasing the edges of creeks.

But eventually I must go–

I cannot disrupt this existence.

I am only a spectator

in this place,

but I can return

as often as I want,

restoring my spirit

with the ever knowingly force

of divinity in the forest

of all waking dreams.

    oh I do like this..as I do the same…though each time it takes longer to leave
    there is such a presence of quiet laying on the ground looking up to the skies through the trees
    a place where I think one connects more completely…
    Thank you for sharing your thoughts, I enjoyed them very much
    Take Care….You Matter…

    Love love love this. Magnificent
