Silent forest



morning light
sparkles the rushing river --
restless feet on unmarked trail  

~0~0~

maple trees bow
in silent prayer as  
black scarred leaves float by 

~0~0~

hush of pine forests
with first blush of winter frost -- 
face of bride in lace  

~0~0~ 

forest trees heave
in sigh of fading footsteps -- 
white silence is music
