Shelter immediate a quiet reaction in a forest,
knowing only the carved humanity
gave passage inside a wood,
a seasonal fascination with nature.
Such is the beauty of a wilderness
a recognition of some humility
the animal life, vegetation and looming
trees that spoke to an ancient history.
Wonderful is the breeze circulating air
a quiet walk turns to some melody
stand now listen, start again and feel
the woods a passion, glance, a glimpse
When maneuvering the crags and rocky
exterior of lives comfort habit
the bounding slams of a bear feet away
our own humanity with their territory.
Pick up rocks we might recognize truths
We the humans are children of their home.
