Spirit Of Land - Poem by valente gonzalez

Where forest stream went through the wood
And silent all the sterns there stood
Of tall tress, moveless, hanging dark
With mottled shadows on their bark

As faint as deepest sleeper's breath
An echo came cold as death
Long are the paths, of shadow made
Where no foot's print is ever laid

No moon, is there, no voice, no sound
Of breathing heart, only sigh of profound
In memory of its darkest cloud
Leaf floats by the near, gains eye of attention

Colors of autumn, brights that darkest spot
Flashbacks races with a land's wind, towards a dusk
River settles mind of frustration's storm
Common voice drifts several waves

Soothens many years of forgotten
Where the land sits...and when the sun sets...
