Forest

All content copyrighted

Moss softens edges
jagged points cloaked and pretending
smooth refinement
persistent moisture's soft focus

reveal grey with burrows
home to a sudden caterpillar

Rooted sentinel soar
a play for each pulse of light
each reaching tendril willing green into
shades of emerald down below
-- a dappled forest

A breath warps
cumulative vapor that saturates
life under the canopy
misty fortress of green and fog
coddling the odd urge
to abandon the vacuous beyond.

Nurturing womb never burning bright
or darkly lifeless
rustling, bird call or slither
underscoring silence and
illuminating pathways within...

  3. This is so beautiful! Exquisite imagery in your poem.. specially adore the lines:

    "A breath warps
    cumulative vapor that saturates
    life under the canopy
    misty fortress of green and fog
    coddling the odd urge
    to abandon the vacuous beyond."

    Truly inspired...
