A Forest Walk Series #2

A Forest Walk continues...

Lost

Stand still. The trees ahead and bushes beside you
Are not lost. Wherever you are is called Here,
And you must treat it as a powerful stranger,
Must ask permission to know it and be known.
The forest breathes. Listen. It answers,
I have made this place around you,
If you leave it you may come back again, saying Here.
No two trees are the same to Raven.
No two branches are the same to Wren.
If what a tree or a bush does is lost on you,
You are surely lost. Stand still. The forest knows
Where you are. You must let it find you.

A real woodsy picture. I like it.
Kay: Hi Louis,
Thank you for your comment! It was very woodsy, and the smells of the pine trees were incredible!

Beautiful shot and words Kay. Love how the sunlight peeked through and shone on the plants/climbers below.
Kay: Hi Mia,
Thank you so much. I had a great time walking through the forest that day.
