791 - The Woods

Photo by Oer Wout



The Woods.

Life is seldom
A straight path
Through a copse of trees
To the light.

Reality meanders.
Shadows call.
Enticing sounds call you
Through the mists,
From the trees,
To come and visit,
Come…come…
Come away from the path,
Away with me…
Come…

Curiosity 
Abhors the normal.
Sirens of the woods,
Ulysses would understand.

  1. The hidden paths are always exciting. Sometimes scarey, but always exciting.

  2. "Life is seldom
    A straight path
    Through a copse of trees
    To the light"............... I couldn't love that more.............. "Reality meanders." I love your call to "come away from the path"

  7. Love the way you went with this--and the bit about curiosity abhoring the normal; very interesting.
