DEAR FOREST

I think this one might sound a bit corny so please tell me if it does lol. All critique gratefully accepted

The forest holds me deep within its spell
For here I’m lost and mesmerised by grace
Here in this space I know that all is well
As sunlight dances lightly on my face
I hear the birdsong clearly in the air
And join my song with theirs my spirit light
This sacred dance is all I need to bear
My other world where all is toil and fight
And as I gain new strength from Nature’s core
I turn and face my world with new resolve
Until I reach that gold eternal shore
Allowing fear and doubt now to dissolve
Dear forest hold me tight this wondrous day
And may the joys you hold forever stay

    I don’t think it’s corny at all, Lorraine. It resonates deeply with me and I feel exactly the same … surrounded by trees and birdsong somehow makes the more serious side of life fade into the background for a while and lifts the heart. The poem is a wonderful expression of sacred joy.

  2. Hope not……….. bacon and eggs for me if I get the chance with all the trimmings.
    I might have a slushy moment later as I have a few things going through my head for a poem, but it needs some work.
