i walk alone.

By: Christy Wisdom


FREE WRITING

i am walking in the woods-
alone, perchance
for i want no company
but my own
and the leaves and nettles
want none but me

for this is my forest
the ferns know me
and the birds are not afraid
they don't fly away
in my presence

and i know the trees
i know their rough bark
the way the moss grows
on them
i know the flowers
they bloom this time of
year,
you know

but you wouldn't.

because i walk alone
in these woods
for i want no company
but my own
and the leaves and nettles
want none but me. 

 


Peer Review

I really like the imagery. you paint a wonderful scene and i feel as if I am actually there.


your punctuation seems to be inconsistent. there is only one place where you put a period and only two where you put commas. i would either suggest taking the punctuation out all together or adding it to more places so that it doesn't seem out of place


Reviewer Comments

this is a really sweet poem. personally, i feel a close connection to nature and this made me smile.
i'll review your other two pieces some time between tomorrow and Thursday!
