Deeper

Deeper

A Poem by Robin
"

the nature of me

"

 

one step

 

one step away

 

one step closer 

 

into the forest I go

 

unafraid

 

following no path

 

listen to my footsteps

 

this is the spirit

 

these are the lessons

 

survive

 

water , fire , shelter , food

 

aware

 

my senses alive

 

to the bear  , the cougar , the snake

 

the Eagle my Totem

 

I take wing

 

to the sky , the wind , the earth  

 

I seek no harm nor intend to inflict

 

I enter the forest in peace

 

and the peace of the forest enters me

 

at night my eyes follow the Moon

 

and I fall asleep under countless stars 

 

in the morning I am graced with dew

 

beginning a new day

 

and quietly

 

continue my journey

 

deeper into nature

 

deeper into the nature of me

I'm quite jealous of you, you know...? This poem, it is what I wish to just throw everything away for, this vision you've created here. I've been finding myself near tears lately, fearing what is to happen to my world...and ashamed because I have yet to lift a hand to protect her...but this poem...it gives me a sort of...hope... We'll likely kill her in time, but perhaps before she dies, I'll fall into the deeper nature of me. Nicely done, sir.

I'm sharing this on facebook, by the way.

I like it very much. Strong imagery : 'into the forest I go'. one can feel that this is written on the basis of experience in nature. Reminds me of the book Wild by Cheryl Strayed I read recently.

The ending is perfect : 'and quietly continue my journey deeper into nature deeper into the nature of me'. Indeed one can discover himself when alone.

Thanks for this jewel. Could you read some of mine.

I like how clear and centered your language is. I think the breaking up of the poem by double spacing it almost seems like each line is a stanza, and makes each stand out by itself, which matches the clarity of each line. It makes them each stand alone. It makes each statement a lone warrior, proud and independent. I also appreciate that you can make us feel the singularity of your focus, while BEING nature itself...being your own nature. I am a nudist and a naturist and love the woods. I am aware I can't share that with everyone, but when I can I love to just be out in nature with no separations between me and all the rest of the world. I feel like you have done an excellent job here at describing that connection to the purity in nature we all have the capacity for (I hope).

Nature is so peaceful to the soul. I find it invigorates the spirit and grounds me. Wonderful writing, Robin.
