Spirit of the Woods

Wood Nymph



In the cave
hidden on the cliffside
Rockfall and rubble
bushes and grasses all around
In that silent solitary place
near the river of my life
I sat in communication
with the bugs and animals
And became more connected
more at one
with the earth in the walls

and through the rock on which I sat
silently in peace…*
