In the forest of my dreams

Where conifers gaily waltz tempos evergreen Unspoiled by human deeds, pure, and pristine, Eagles soar there, spanning freedom wings And trees gently whisper to rhythmic bird trills Echoing grey owls, blue jays, robins, crossbills, Hopping, jumping, circling, frolicking in breeze Reveling with hatchlings, feeding on berries As sun rays filtering-in on wildflowers glow Oscillating shadows in gusting, windy, woes Amidst bears’ huffs, woofs, raging ugly growl When raccoons coyly snarl at foxes’ feral-howl Hiding from pitter-patter of tropical rainfall In heavenly paradise as birdsongs toll daylong Serenading the land where liberty is paramount In forest of my dreams’ blossoming sanctuary~ A temple, a hideaway, a refuge, an ecosystem, A reserve for humanity, a shrine for sanctity, In equilibrium, edifying calmness and peace Where elixir of sacred life flows in holy streams Sustaining earth’s renewal in tranquil harmony. April 17, 2021 Placed 3rd: In the forest of my dreams premium contest Sponsor: Mystic Rose Rose Placed 1st: All yours (Apr 24) contest

Hello Vijay, Just as you put words to page, it became real. A lush refuge created in your hatchling dreams where eagles soar. Such a vibrant pen used to trace a poem in boundaryless tract, in evergreen. -Richard
