To Forests

by Alwyn Gornall

I ran from the roar

of life like a frightened beast,

away from the hard-angled city,

to hide under your petticoat

and float in your stillness.

Your silence wrapped me like a duvet

spreading a warmth over me like a log fire.

 I took the paths that demanded walking

and fear, frustration and anger

fell away like autumn leaves.

You filled me with renewed energy

to return to the roar…

until the next time

next time

next time

next time

next time

next time

next time

I took the paths that demanded walking
and fear, frustration and anger
fell away like autumn leaves.
