Silent Wood

October 27, 2020

Standing on moss,
Bare toes wiggling in its softness,
I could just breathe in the aroma of peace,
Serenity,
An escape from the exhausting stress of modern life,
The drama of friends, or not-friends,
The weariness and drudgery of school.
And it all vanishes away here.
Sunlight peeps through cracks in the foliage,
The leaves blending it into emerald and topaz.
A golden light falls on my skin, bringing a glow of new life.
I lean my head against a tree,
Not minding the rough bark against my hair,
The cool trickle of the stream in my ears,
The light chirping of the birds as they call lovingly to each other.

And when it is night,
Diamond stars blink in the indigo sky.
A moon shines down silvery light,
To sparkle on the dew-dripped ground.
And I could sit on the bumpy earth for many hours,
Just to whisper prayers to Father.
For the beautiful haven.
While the owl hoots eerily,
The icy wind reminding me,
That adventure still lurks.
Where there are silent, hidden woods,
Full of fantasies from young girls.

    yay the woods are back! I wish there were woods near where I live. well, there's nothing remotely as beautiful as what you described here XD
    "just to whisper prayers to Father, for the beautiful haven" is my fave line I think. Gosh, I felt so at peace reading this.
