O, The Solitude

~~^~~ Standing at a quadrivial on a wooded road, knowing that each led to a mystical, ethereal place, the lushness of the forest inspirational and incredible, I opt for a footpath leading to a shady grove. Far from the clamorous, chaotic world ever beating, and beneath a weeping willow tree I find my solitude, O, how unbelievable the bird songs each a ligure, a gem, the forest a harmonious moan echoing my aloneness. I behold the scented flowers unfolding and unfurling, the murmur of a meandering stream not that far away, while filigree clouds drift above a dark green canopy, and in my mind is held a reservoir of words. Closing eyes, I listen, I listen, then take up my pen, and I write, I write, I write the lazy, beautiful day away, that I may offer you a fleeting, momentary pericope, of my words this summer day . . . ~~^~~ July 9, 2013 Narrative For the contest, Any Subject
