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.

To be able to find yourself and when/if you do, it will be in nature I believe. It always pulls at us, we always love to go visit wild places...we treasure them. It's just those who deny their nature that are at odds with it and the wild places. I love your poem, its fantastic!

But you, poet, are nature, that's what man is, trouble is that's too often forgotten. It's the being in the forest, being in the 'space', that we remember what we are - or what we could be. It's where we walk on earth but fly ..

Of course you know that '.. I am graced with dew ~ and quietly continue my journey ~ deeper into nature ~ deeper into the nature of me '

Well I truly felt like I got to take this days walk with you my friend. This speaks on so many levels of spirituality, mindfulness and inner peace. The complete symbiotic love that you carry in this piece touched me. ~ Rose

It is a place of discover isn’t it… I grew up with nature being my playground… Like a call from the wild, this piece speaks to my heart…

Great Write Robin!
RLG,
Tommy
