Forest Walk

The forest I could not find
Only trees filled my mind
Looking and searching was what I did
But I did not find the forest, not even a bit
Suddenly I saw you
And forgot what to do
I tried to breathe, to talk, to think
My body didn’t even blink
Before I realized, my heart was gone
Your talking, I felt it in every bone
I tried to break the silence: 'what is'
Then you shut me up with a kiss
At last I found the forest in these trees
But now I was attracted to you, you were what honey is for bees

I closed my eyes
And saw different skies
I could see the pictures in my head
But I tried to open my eyes instead
Your voice kept going on
Finally, I opened my eyes and you were gone

I started to walk home
When I looked back the forest was gone

The old year went, and the new returned, in the withering weeks of drought,
The cheque was spent that the shearer earned,
and the sheds were all cut out;
