Dream In A Forest - Poem by Charl JF Cilliers

in the forest spider webs –
delicate, merciless –
stare with blind eyes

moths like words fly
in a hush
of dense leaves untouched by sunlight

the forest holds
its breath of dark sleep
moths are flickering shadows
hidden from sight

outside the web of trees
in the sun, on a stone,
a stick insect’s wings open and close
open and close like a scream
