Written upon leaving the ‘hurly burly bustle’ and living in a forest for a little while


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.
