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.

The urge is strong to join you there in that serene and honest place. I can relate to these words and sense the experience.

This is greatness in two-fold: The look into nature and the look into self. Either way, it's stunning and thought provoking.

It's funny how the inner beast calls out from time to time to return home....away from the current world and back into a simpler time. Beautifully written. Brings back so many memories and fuels an inner fire.

this felt like peaceful escape from the rigors of life and the stresses of day to day living. It was such beauty and tranquility. It filled my heart with warmth.

Just reading this made me miss the Polish forests that I so love...to nonintrusively invade nature and merge with her...to be the bird and the tree and the earth...there is no fear when you do not inflict fear...subtle wisdom...this is the elixir of life.

Dear, dear birdie...
*sigh*
There are simply no words that could capture the essence of what swirls in my core as a result of reading this. I'm am left in absolute awe... of you, of creation, of me. This shall reside as a favorite of my heart and soul.
