Forest Of Arden. - Poem by Miki Byrne

Forest of Arden.


The green and whispering forest
Envelops us, sussurating with needle-song
That sighs and chuckles high above our heads.

Pine needles lie soft beneath our feet.
Chiaroscuro obscures shapes
As shifting shadows flow around us.

We walk in deep shades, bright pools
In intermittent heat and cool.
No breeze sighs down here today.

Heavy air warm and thick clogs our ears.
Time becomes sticky as we
Walk on- dreamy and heat-dazed.

    Miki, welcome to PoemHunters! I've made friends all over the world at this site. You are obviously, an accomplished poet and I loved this poem. I live in the mountains of North Carolina, and the feeling of our surrounding trees affects my life every day. How the air changes as we walk through them especially. How the heat of the day cools and the breeze stops; they breathe and we breathe. Loved it, and look forward to reading more. Invite you to read my work here, and also our ebook on www.amazon.com under Poetry-Against-Terror edited by Fabrizio Forsini, another member of PoemHunters. (Report) Reply
