the green path


Why did I have a hard time returning?

It really is springtime, and there are green pathways to follow into the woods, where all sorts of beauty is visible... That vivid viridian just beckons: come and look... pay attention... there is something new each moment, each glimpse, each step deeper... breathe in the moist rich air...


the moss lives here


in a myriad of varieties


wherever you look,
there is new growth


trillium bedecked,
moss-carpeted


look up along the branches


and bark of mighty yew


but do not walk carelessly;
there are folk who live here


on the hill,
or by the river


through the green tunnel
is another world,
a world alive...
