A Walk in the Woods

When life in the city
becomes too much to bear,
With its winding concrete roads,
Its underpasses and overpasses,
Its tall buildings and speeding cars,
When I am overwhelmed by a sense
of hopelessness and unrelenting stress,
I retreat into the arms of Nature

When life amidst people
becomes too much to bear,
With their big black hearts
And puny shriveled souls,
With their depraved moral values-
Self-obsessed, materialistic and profane,
I take refuge in the bosom of the forest.

I dwell among towering trees
And splendorous falls,
With its gushing streams
And magnificent mountains,
Pretty flowers in their colorful attire
peeping through grass and shrubs
swaying alluringly with beckoning smiles,
And bees humming joyfully over them,
Soothes my insatiable craving for bliss;
I find solace in the lap of Nature.

    In a hot summer afternoon, when there's a mild wind blowing, sit under a tree - the experience will be out of this world. Glad you liked it.

    I think this one is going to be way at the top of the winners. SUre wish I could write this way for that contest but I will probably do one much more shallow than yours. VERY wonderful poem.
