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 have spent much time in the solitude of the forest, alone. Time filled with precious moments and memories.

My youth taken away by time, prevents me from returning, but nature keeps calling!

This is going into my library!!

...I enter the peace of the forest, and the peace of the forest enters me...
Sweet.

There is sometimes nothing more needed than the solitude, to stand in a grove of trees older than your family, to feel the ages in the rock....

I have always wanted to spend time away from civilization for an amount of time and see how it changes me, so I commend you for actually doing it. Love this poem and the way it makes me feel.

This is a beautiful and evocative picture. The dark quietness, the magnificence, is clearly visible. Wonderful.

I loved this Robin, It was lovely to think about the forest and be taken away from my surroundings for a few moments of what felt like meditation, Thankyou

As you know I hate dirt, so I would totally never sleep there. But as you say - the place becomes you - and you become it - I totally get this, and the language you use expresses both its intensity and its repose.
