Free to feel those loose beats drumming
among the forest humming of a world
of activity so close, so far –
where peace dwells tranquil and apart
and yet imparts and bestows a
warmth of heart which brings you back to
you with a soft, subtle start-
muffled with leaves which wrap you,
keep you, warm, feed, and nourish you.
Heat for the soul which began to grow
cold through a gaze shifted outward
dealing with the hurly burly bustle –
but here, now, hear the leaves rustle,
the birds sing and the contented hum of
a leaf dappled world.
Unremember all: this is everything.
