That love of nature made me eagerly explore everything that was truly beautiful; and hiking in those dense woods, its secret wasn't to be kept... I had no name for the wild-flowers, only for the hydras along a brook, but the unicorn plants didn't seem to belong there... As I went deeper into it, even my footsteps echoed through an air of suspense; and the vulnerable shrikes fled from the voltures, so did the accipiters seeking out the help of the eagles, undaunting eagles gone to the sunny skies... Adventure,in the truest sense of the word, was a passion I couldn't renounce... and it came to life through search and silence; and who could be feeling alone in the wild, when the harmonious sounds responded to a curious and intuitive mind?

Andrew, I love to be alone in nature. My most precious moments in life took place in the woods. Now, I retire to the woods where memories of camping days with my children stay fresh in my mind. I really enjoyed your poem. Congratulations on having it featured this week. Keep writing, Love and Hugs, Dane
