Alone in the forest at last,
following an indistinct trail.
Found out by the inhabitants
with a resulting unnatural silence.
Standing motionless for a time,
life eventually resumes.
Birds fly in the canopy above,
while butterflies float by.
Rays of sunshine create surreal
patterns on the forest floor.
The scent of a recent summer rain
fills the air.
The fragrance of the earth arouses
Pools of water from a spring reflect
the verdant growth.
Nearby shadows come alive with
visions never imagined.
Now my mind is free to wander,
leaving material concerns behind.
