Looking for Forests

Lisa Cox

There are no forests here
I know forests exist
Here is flatness and low hills
My heart longs
To be lost
Lost in the forest
The whole world
Dampened by
Tree cover
Ground cover
Snow cover
All this madness
In my mind
Pushed out by
By the smell of
Wet leaves
Rough bark
Beneath hungry
Too long
Gliding over
Smooth plains
Sitting in silence
While the forest
Lives and breathes
All around
Life support
While I let
Go of everything
Swirling around
Protected by
Tree cover
