A Walk in the Wilderness

fresh morning dew scintillates
on diamond webs
under a new sun rising
from a horizon's pink glow

wildflowers sweeten fresh air
as a busy world fades from
memory of traffic noise forgotten
as songbirds serenade from a distance

all is peace in soft breathing
and quiet echoes of a heart beat
as calm radiates from silent footfalls
along a quiet wooded trail

while away from a wild fortress
of wilderness and ivory towers of solitude
a world burns with alien passions
of flesh meeting steel in relentless violence

awareness dawns, stopping him.......mid-stride
on a thin edge of enlightenment 

as he can hear whispered echoes
of his own death softly screaming

and answers in a whispered song
of slowly drawn ringing steel

    Exceptional writing, Stephen. I really enjoyed this poem that tells of nature's beauty and man's sometimes, lack of simple love. Always, Annalise
