Forest




tall forest treetops,
wide sky and lush maple hills-
where my eyes linger

~0~0

where wildflowers,
bathe in mountain rain -
my words breathe

~0~0

on bed of needles and
blanket of thousand moss,
the moon beguiles

~0~0

under towering pines,
beside river of hundred leaves -
my feet rest
