Walk in the Woods

Posted January 6, 2014 & filed under Notebook.

This is where to go

when you need

to think

or not to think

Find the woods

to find yourself

strolling under a canopy

of starlight

the smell of pine needles

in the air

a rustle over there in

the bushes

a sky like a

blanket of blue

just keep walking

until you forget

all the things

you need to do

all the things

you’re scared of

all the confusion

in your head

just keep walking

until you start to

feel like the branches

of a tree or the

stars above.
