The Silence Calls to Me

20171018_144726

As my walk goes deeper into the forest, the silence calls to me.

Cooler air envelops the trees

covered by the shade, I turn suddenly when a sparrow leaves her nest.

Noticing the sunlight is diffused now

looking with my heart filled,

I bow my head

as a lone crow ruffles his feathers

disturbed by my sense

of quiet.

We do make peace and then…..

I let the words flow,

but is it really a prayer?

  1. I often feel an immediate affinity to both your photo images in the forest and your thoughts that go with them. Thanks again for sharing them both.
