Journey into the Forest

The shade comforts me.

The air, filled with the aroma of moss and wood and earth, a fountain of youth to my soul.

The sound of many little things fill my ears with silence and calm and peace.

The bird on that branch overhead sings to me a beautiful little song. Her breast beats rhythmically in melodic motion.

Green rains down to my feet and dances in a whimsical little whirlwind. Up and down. Spin and fall.

Narrow rays of light lighten the scene.

And I say to them, “Let me dance with you a little while, and forget what lies beyond the forest.”
