In the Forest

In the forest of blues and greens There’s an eerie group of feelings I move in the forest of night I wander in the lack of light Fear envelopes within these scenes I walk through the darkness it seems Darkest when I venture to dreams I conjure up a great delight In the forest Fantasy comes up and redeems Opulent and surely doesn’t mean Mighty darkness is quite a sight Kind hearted features of real might I motion to go quite unseen In the forest

    Thanks for introducing me to yet another cool form of poetry. I like the feeling of unease that you have here, while still being in awe, deep in a beautiful forest.

    The irony that being in an area that is surrounded with trees, blocking the horizons, one still knows which way to go for a better tomrorow. I loved this!
