This is a poem I wrote before and have just tidied up.  I want to share this for a small group of close friends - because I think they will know this place. :)  I am linking to dVerse  for this one - because I think any time we get the chance to read many good poets, we should. :)   So grab your favourite beverage and come with me to somewhere rather special...


Through the woods
Into the night
Ghosting along in the pale moonlight
Silently stepping, calm and alone
Reaching a place only I can call home

Sighing soft breeze
Trees cleanse the air
Tall stately trunks of giants live here
My presence expected but calmly received
Greeted with murmurs of moon silvered leaves

Conversing caressing
Streams wander by
Dancing from translucent trees to the sky
Constantly moving, unchangingly still
Revealing, unearthing, my senses they fill

Purposefully wading
Unhurriedly deep
Aching intensity cool waters seep
Peering, awaiting soft surface flow
Searching, exploring reflections below
Communing softly
In watery bliss
Galaxies hidden in lake's soothing kiss
Eternal delights gently unfold
Sing in the moonlight of treasures untold

Complexities soothing
Untangling vines
Truth slowly sifting through layers of time
Alone in the starlight clasped in His hand
Lost in the soil of this pale silent land

This rises and falls like wing beats, it has such a cadence (as Brian noted) that it seems to fly! Wonderful!

Beautiful imagery. Very haunting and still, yet I sensed promise.
