The mystery of the forest awaits
as I walk once again to my secret place
a small bench halfway along the trail
to sit and listen and rest awhile.
The forest fills with sound,
the purring whine of insects,
a wooshing breeze, a song bird’s song,
a stream’s shhhhhh and trickling,
the chatter of leaves,
unknown cracklings and
Yes, I can hear nature’s sigh
that matches mine.
