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.

Comes from the very heart of California...deep, in your light strokes of rhythm.

Back to our primal nature. So refreshing.

As humans we wear countless masks for society's sake. We rarely uncover ourselves to show our naked core as fear of expression of self runs rampant. The beauty of you blooms in your writing, I can see you for exactly who you are. (Just as the forest filled with creatures can.) The balance of mind and spirit with humans and animals alike is wondrous. Thank you for sharing your gift. I am blessed to understand your kinship with nature, and to be able to read such beauty.

Modern life is full of such luxuries that, in theory, serve to make life easier. But in the end, it just complicates and makes us desire more. Here, you took man back to the basics, back to his roots... where he finds peace in all he'll ever need. Great piece of writing.

The tranquility of this poem comes through clearly. the flow reflects the slow pace of the character in this poem. sometimes we have to unplug and unwind. Nature is the place for thought and reflections and to find our inner peace.

Survival, nature, peacefulness. Being alone with nature often makes us realize things about ourselves. This is an awesome poem and perfectly written.

This inspired me. I will now do most of my work outside, instead of in my bedroom with this run-down, old computer. Thank you for this beautiful piece of writing!

The truly important things in life are found out in nature...it is a place to find our inner self.
