Spirits of the Forest: Refuge

In Forest Presence

I listen,


and needles rustle


Hum inside

Hemlock bark


if only humans

 would listen


 erupt beneath

the forest floor


in a tapestry of threads

millions of miles

of white

 cottony intentions

made manifest

by Raven and


I listen….


Is Stillness



Only then

 do birds


the Secrets

we crave

Spirits of the Forest 

Oh yes,

I listen.

Teresa of Avila writes: “If we learn to love the earth, we will find labyrinths, gardens, fountains and precious jewels! A whole new world will open itself to us. We will discover what it means to be truly alive.”

This has certainly been true for me.
