A Forest Walk Series# 5

A Forest Walk ends.

A Blessing for the Woods

by Michael S. Glaser

Before I leave, almost without noticing,
before I cross the road and head toward
what I have intentionally postponed—

Let me stop to say a blessing for these woods:
for crows barking and squirrels scampering,
for trees and fungus and multi-colored leaves,

for the way sunlight laces with shadows
through each branch and leaf of tree,
for these paths that take me in,
for these paths that lead me out.

This one may be my favorite of the series, Kay, probably because it feels like the edge of the woods...coming out or going in, as the poem says. Either way, it is very inviting. Great capture!
Kay: Hi Ginnie, thank you for your comment. I agree with you. This one is my favorite of the five. I like the flecks of light green scattered in the sunlight.
