My Woods

My Woods

A Poem by dawn aulis

A picture of my past


My woods

Natures wonders all around,

Sky so blue, and the only sounds,

Are birds above in the trees,

Makes me whole, my soul is pleased.

The branches sway in the wind,

Crackling noise makes me grin.

All alone in these woods,

Like before, just where I stood.

A child lost, searching for peace,

I found it here, in the rustling leaves.

An old foot path, barely seen,

I find now, my eye is keen.

Walked this path, many times before,

I know the way, my feet are sure.

Walk along, I know my way,

Until the woods open up to the light of day.

Breaking through with shade of green,

Grasses grow, and there's a stream.

I miss this place from my past,

I’d like to stay, to make this last.

But I must leave, and be on my way,

I don’t belong, or so they say.

But I will walk, these woods again,

In my dreams, or with my kin.

i think you do belong. It is obvious from these words.

one spot "nature's wonders"

but a piece that makes us feel peace.

Beautiful. Nature itself is able to heal, soothe and inspire, but to be in a familiar place like you describe also gives meaning and dimension to one's life.
